NORTON, THE CAT WHO WENT TO PARIS: SCOTTISH FOLD BOOKS AUTOGRAPHED TO BASIL!


Peter Gethers and Scottish Fold cat Norton, books The Cat who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, The Cat who Lived Forever. Package for La Carmina and Basil Farrow in Canada.

Basil Farrow is far more famous and popular than his human parents will ever be. Proof: he receives his own correspondence. In fact, one needs only to address a package to his name and country, and Canada Post does the rest. (All right, I engaged in some Photoshop.)

Peter Gethers or Russell Andrews, author and Random House Focus Features president. Cream yellow Scottish Fold cat with Norton books, The Cat who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, The Cat who Lived Forever.

From Peter Gethers of Random House? His favorite author! Peter was similarly captivated by his grey Scottish Fold, Norton, and wrote three books about their adventures: The Cat Who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, and The Cat Who’ll Live Forever. (You won’t understand the magic until you have one of these round, earless teddy-owls around.)

Signed, autographed books with cute yellow Scottish Fold cat. Peter Gethers or Russell Andrews, author and Random House Focus Features president. Fat, furry round kitty with Norton books, The Cat who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, The Cat who'll live Forever.

And inside the package… was the trilogy! Autographed to Basil and his mom!

Autographed books from Peter Gethers or Russell Andrews, author and Random House Focus Features president. Cream yellow Scottish Fold, cute cat meowing with red hearts next to signed novels.

To reiterate, Basil Farrow is far better connected than his parents ever will be. He became friends with the author via Facebook – mainly because he wants to play with his current Foldys, Hud and Harper. Peter put up with our silliness and offered to send us copies of his books! Can you believe it? “Brrmeow!” says Basil, “Domo arigato gozaimasu!”

Cutest Cat in the world, earless round owl-faced teddy bear kitty, Basil Yuen Farrow. Cream yellow Scottish Fold cat with Norton books, The Cat who Went to Paris, A Cat Abroad, The Cat who Lived Forever.

We will re-read the Norton trilogy together and treasure them for our nine lives. You should sniff out these books yourself, as they’re not just for cat lovers. Norton and Peter’s adventures will keep you in stitches, especially when figures such as Roman Polanski (also a friend of Basil’s) make cameos. The books are available in a set on Amazon, and you can find out more on the Random House website. Here’s to new furry and flop-eared friends!

      Someone else mentioned that Scottish Folds aren’t allowed to be sold in some countries… how sad!

    Basil is so cute. I was a little saddened by the inscription because it reads that Norton 'would have loved you' which would mean that Norton has since passed on into cat heaven. Still, I hope Basil appreciates it!

    Norton lived a long and lovely life, from what Peter writes in his book! Now, he has two Scottish Fold siblings (Hud and Harper) to keep him company. :)

    Hope you're doing well! How are the parties holding up?

    I've just read 'A Cat called Norton' and I absolutely love it, he reminds me of my own cat Sammy, the writing is fantastic and funny, I've just ordered 'The cat who'll live forever'… can't wait to read it.
