Pet-Peeves: Normy does not like to be ignored. He is very vocal and expects an acknowledgement.
Favorite Toy: Norman loves his laser light which I am very careful not to shine near his eyes.
Favorite Nap Spot: Norm loves to nap on the daybed.
Favorite Food: Norman loves everything.
Skills: Norman can jump very high and do tumbling tricks. Normy has the best purr! Mom calls him "motorboat".
Arrival Story: Norman found me when I really needed a friend. He followed me home and stayed in the back yard. I made the outdoor shed his home complete with a little cat bed and a "welcome friends" sign. When I moved from the relatonship I was in, Norman came with me. He is a loyal, fun, and true friend. He has joined our family and is the youngest of my 3 cats.
Bio: Norman was born in Triumph, Il. and was scratched in his eye by a littermate. He nearly lost his eye, but a wonderful cat lover named Krissy helped Norman to save his eye. We do not know how well Normy can see out of his eye, but he does very well, so that is all that matters.
I had no idea when I was roaming around in the alleys before I met my Mom how important or loved I would be. There I was, just a little orphan kitty seeking a friend and a warm place to sleep at night. Did I ever tell you that before I met my Mom that I used to sleep in an abandoned bank? It was lonesome. I had a lot of friends and yes I had some fun climbing trees and stuff, but when I found my Mom, I saw she was so sweet and generous. She never minded if I brought EVERY stray kitty over to eat. I will tell you that I was always fed first. Gee, that made me feel so special. My life was too short on earth, but I think that God needed me as an angel to watch over all the kitties who get sick and those who never find a forever home. It just does not seem fair, but my Mom always said that we are only lent to people and then we need to return to God. Mom is really missing me. My sis Baby Girl misses me, my brofur Guy is not the same and Coale seems to feel like he lost his best friend. I am so sorry I am no longer there like I was, but please know my love for all of you will never die. I will always be there. You just need to listen to the singing birds and the peaceful sounds of a cool evening and you will hear me there loving you. A year has passed so fast. My Mom is really trying hard to get through this time. She has decided to plant flowers in memory of me. I am hoping she will again plant some sunflowers. Please do not feel sad. Life is short, but love is long. I will always be there...just purr and call my name and I will soon be right by your side. I love you, Shadow.
Please do not be sad on March 20. Be happy that my Mom let me go to the Bridge with dignity. I was also blessed as I got the chance to say goodbye to my furmaly. Life is not always what we see it as. Let's rejoice that we met and that I found my Mom and had so much fun while on earth.
I love you, my sweetness,
Your Sweet Norman
My life was short, but I had a wonderful life. I found a loving home and a wonderful human Mom. I had 2 brothers and a sister who I hated to leave. I was blessed as I was able to say goodbye to my family before I left for the Bridge. Mom made sure I left with dignity as I was her Sweet Norman.
I had the chance to meet a beautiful girl cat named Shadow, who I visit everyday with my golden wings leading the way. What more could a sweet boy ask for?
I ask all my friends and family to remember me on March 20, 2009 as it marks one year I have been an angel at the Rainbow Bridge.
Mom never takes my photos down and never forgets me. Please remember me this day and show some extra love to your kitties or perhaps a stray kitty who may come your way.
Thank you all my cat friends.
I have to take time to write about a young kitty lady that I love. Her name is Shadow and before I crossed the Rainbow Bridge, she vowed to always love me. She has been true to her purr. She writes to me and I visit her everynight and sprinkle her with angel dust. I call her my Sweet Sunflower because she is beautiful and bright and sunny just like a sunflower.
I often wonder why it is so hard for humans to find true love like this and I have discovered an answer. See, I have always been just a country boy- just a little kitty born in the country and I was lucky enough to find my Mom who loved me so much and continues to love me from afar. I had nothing to offer Miss Shadow but the love in my heart and I had plenty of that. I have no money, no fancy car (well, I cannot drive), and I never worked. It seems like all us cats ever want is love. We do not think of material things and we never lie to each other or to our owners. We are constant with our love and never falter. True, there are some humans who have been lucky and found that in another human, but not too many. I wish humans could learn how to love like us and welcome each other home every night the way we welcome our Moms and Dads home. We have no time for arguing and just love to snuggle and be loved. So, I feel very lucky to have this fantastic girlcat, Miss Shadow, as my true love. I may be at the Bridge now sipping cream from the Cream Stream and frolicking in the catnip fields, but I never forget those who love me. I am going to purr for all humans to find someone as special as the lady cat I found!!! It is a wonderful feeling!!!! I just wanted all of you to know...
