Norm’s Nook is named after the Cochrane & Area Humane Society’s former shelter cat Norman. Norman was a stray, which is a pet who has been abandoned or who has strayed from home and become lost. We rescued him from the streets of Cochrane in 1998, and overtime with love and patience he was rehabilitated. Norman spent his days greeting visitors, staff and volunteers, and gave back as much love as he received until he passed in January 2014 after 15 wonderful years with us.
Unfortunately we are frequently reminded of the many cats out there who are not as lucky as Norman – cats who continue to live tragic lives while reproducing countless offspring that face trauma, disease, malnutrition and climatic extremes in miserable, and often short, lives. Every day, our shelter struggles to provide care and opportunity to staggering numbers of homeless cats brought in from Cochrane and the surrounding rural areas. There are simply not enough homes for them all. Perhaps the saddest part is the fact that the fate of these strays is completely preventable by simply spaying and neutering our pets – responsible pet ownership!
In recognition of these homeless animals and the suffering they endure, we named the store after our dear Norman – one of the lucky ones.
All proceeds from the store will be directed towards saving homeless animals that need our help.
Maisy is doing wonderful (we kept her name since I thought it suited her). She is such a sweet-natured girl, and loves cuddles and belly rubs! She is starting to purr now when she is happy and around my boyfriend and I. The only time I’ve ever heard her meow though, was when we took her to the vet. Other than that, she doesn’t make a sound. I thought it was a little strange because I’ve always had chatty cats growing up, but I guess that’s just how Maisy is!
We could not have found a better cat to fit into our lives. Thank you so much once again.
