"Mum said that this cat had boiled cauliflower instead of brains," Madeline remembered. Mum had said this when Edward Norton had slipped while taking curve on the slippery parquet floor and hit the wall really hard. "Let's just call him Eddie then," the girls decided in the end. So this is how Edward Norton became Eddie and soon enough, everyone got used to the new name.
