Big Norm, or BN for short, is a charming, affectionate young man who lives in Birmingham, England, with his two fur-sisters, Betsy and Pozzy. Although he is happy and loved now, BN didn’t have the best start in life, and was living as a stray in a car park before he was taken in by a local rescue. Fortunately, his time in the rescue didn’t last long and it was around three years ago that BN moved in to his fur-ever home with his mommy and daddy, Caroline and Scott.
BN truly ruled the roost on the idyllic Bank Street, with all the local kitties treating him with the reverence that a kitty of his caliber deserves. The rumors surrounding BN’s wild activities on Bank Street are many and varied, some claim to have seen him making friends with a red fox, others have outed him as the ringleader of the local kitty fight club, but (of course) he refused to comment on that.
Things took a turn for the worse when in early January 2017 he was diagnosed with intestinal lymphoma and also tested positive for FeLV, meaning his that his days as the feline potentate of Bank Street were over, as his health has led to him having to stay indoors.
As I’m sure you all know, being a house cat doesn’t mean that a kitty can’t live an exciting life full of joy, happiness, and fulfillment. BN, and his sisters, are lucky enough to have parents who know that it is of paramount importance to fill the house with toys. When BN was presented with toys from the 4cats valerian range, he loved them!
