Real life humour and pathos drive this quirky travelogue and love story. It was Felicia's (Ed's cat) idea, said author Ed Webster to his boss when asking permission to take a year's sabbatical.

A friend from Belgium edited and recommended this book. I read it over a decade ago and cannot correctly rate it, but I must have enjoyed it. Here's the note I just found to my friend.

First book I pulled out of the travel section had a man, his blind wife and cat travelling Europe for a year. It is a great read even if they are completely mad taking the cat with them. Definitely recommend this one

A travel memoir about a man, his blind wife, and their 16 year old cat, and the year they spent traveling all over Europe. They traveled in 1997, and went to Venice, Florence, Paris, and many other places.

It was a great book and I loved that the author and his wife stayed in some European locations that are off the beaten path. Honestly, I have two cats and i love them, but these people were pretty over the top with their cat. It was the biggest downfall of the book.
