Out for a walk along the Left Bank in Paris…
Chat Noir’s Newest Generation
So, when I wrote Travels with George: Paris, A Cat’s Eye Adventure, I didn’t expect anyone to blink when the plot included cats traveling to Paris by hiding out in their human hosts’ suitcase.
Note: I made it all up. No cat I’ve ever known about has been smuggled into Paris or anywhere else, hiding inside a suitcase.
Some imaginary acrobatics had to happen because I wrote from George’s (the cat’s) point of view. A smart cat resists the prospect of being left behind with twice a day cat sitters, then leads his audience on a tour of Paris as only a cat can see it.

As you can see, the cats did some serious adventuring in Paris. Here, they both get the first boat rides of their lives, with a queasy feeling, and the Eiffel Tower lifting skyward behind them.
