Cat rescue groups do so much to help us felines. Many of us felines owe our lives to them. One feline found a unique way to show his gratitude to the cat rescue group that saved him.
Norman was the first arrival at an RSPCA facility in 2012. He arrived in bad shape. The kind humans there, including the humans in white coats, did not know if he would survive the night. Norman arrived at the site after kind humans found him with four badly damaged legs. They suspected a car had hit Norman.
But Norman fought hard to recover from his injuries. It took months for him to fully recover. But that is what this feline did. The humans at the RSPCA facility waited for someone to claim Norman, but nobody ever did.
Norman, despite being injured badly, was also very lucky. You see, the cat rescue facility had just opened. Without it, Norman may not have received the help he needed. He would have left us if that happened. “We’re almost certain he would have died of his wounds, probably within just a few hours. We couldn’t bear to part with him after everything he’d been through,” said one of the humans at the facility.
Since he arrived at the cat rescue facility, Norman has seen nearly 1,500 animals pass through the doors. He’s seen 1,332 cats come through as well as 33 rabbits, and 16 rats.
Two feral kittens joined Norman to help him with his greeter duties. These felines, named Betsy and Belinda, also greet visitors. But Norman is the one who most people know. He has become a local celebrity, and goes with the cat rescue group to events. And when the facility is open, Norman sits on the couch, waiting to say hello.
This, furiends, is why Norman got a nickname. The humans around the cat rescue facility call him Norman the Doorman.
I am very happy that kind humans saved Norman from certain death in 2012. I like how he has repaid the humans who saved him by helping around the cat rescue facility. Good for Norman!
