being left alone and/or eating

anyone touching her, being disturbed when sleeping, trying to be picked-up or cuddled, other cats (except she tolerates Cooper), just about anything...

Favorite Toy:
My hands/arms and our other cats.

Favorite Nap Spot:
The warm garage, an office chair, anywhere small & hidden.

Favorite Food:
She likes wet food but b/c of a tummy issue, she eats Iams kibble.

Being mostly feral and keeping her kittens alive and hidden even though I looked ALL over the subdivisions for them a number of times.


Arrival Story:
I rescued Nori's sister last fall so I was surprised to see another orange female coming to eat at our outdoor cat station this past April. This new cat seemed friendly yet skittish and continued to stop by at least once a day. One night, she showed up with three of the tiniest kittens I'd ever seen. Of course, they were hers and she was showing them where to find food and water. Her kittens were so tiny they couldn't even climb up to the chair to reach the food. I decided right then and there that all of those cats had to be rescued. With the help of local animal welfare organizations and a LOT OF PATIENCE, I was able to capture two of Nori's kittens (we believe the runt died b/c we only saw her once & she was so small) and turned the kittens into a local adoption group to be vetted and placed for adoption.

By the time I was able to catch Nori, she was already pregnant with her second litter so time was of the essence. With help, Nori was spayed, vetted, and deemed healthy so we prevented another litter of cats being born on the street. We planned on allowing Nori back on the street once she healed, but we just couldn't do it. The little orange cat had already lived a year out there and that was too much, so she's now a member of our indoor pounce and we're all trying to get along with the temperamental orange cat.
