OK folks, get out your hankies and tissues - this book is NOT an easy read! For those of you who have read the previous two books about Norton, the Scottish Fold kitty who traveled everywhere with his human, Peter Gethers, and spent a year in France, the final book about Norton, The Cat Who'll Live Forever, is the story of Norton's last years and his final days and hours. For those of us, and I think it is all of us, who have had to watch our beloved kitties cross the Bridge and know we could not follow, reading this book might prove to be strangely cathartic. It was for me. Oh yeah, I cried a river! But this book shows the great love and bond between Norton and Peter. It shows how a man grew to not only love his cat, but how he devoted himself to Norton in his last days and hours. Well-written and not all sad, this book has proved to be among my own personal favourites about cats. No, it isn't an easy read, but it is a book full of love, devotion and acceptance. Available on Amazon, Kindle, in used book stores and at the library, it will bless your hearts with the love Peter has for Norton and tug at your heartstrings, as well.
Janruary's book review won't feature a book that is sad in any way. It is a wonderful joyful read and I look forward to sharing it with you all. Feliz Navidad! Slainte!
