The Cat Who Went to Paris is a short novel by Peter Gethers that documents his life with his cat Norton, a Scottish Fold (published in the UK as A Cat Called Norton). It spurred two sequel books, A Cat Abroad (ISBN 9780449909522) and The Cat Who'll Live Forever: The Final Adventures of Norton, the Perfect Cat, and His Imperfect Human (ISBN 9780767909037).[1][2][3][4]

Literary critic and scholar Charles Limley has remarked that The Cat Who Went to Paris "may be one of the finest pieces of feline-inspired literary production since The Cat Who… series. The bold artistic vision of Gethers and his paw-padded companion is matched only by the force of Gethers' cutting prose. A true mast-purrrr-piece."
