But before we dive into her story, let’s take a moment to ponder why people turn to social media to find solace.
Roughly a year ago, my life changed for the better when I came across some pictures that caught my attention. While at work, I found myself frantically messaging a friend to ensure that I could adopt a specific cat. Despite my anxiety, I knew deep down that I needed this feline in my life. Miraculously, my wish was granted, and I was able to adopt her. Since then, Nora has brought so much joy into my life, even appearing on The Kelly Clarkson Show and being shared all over the world.
I feel extremely fortunate to have her in my life and cherish every moment we spend together. My only desire is to have another 50 years or more with her! I would like to extend my gratitude to @ashdc98 for knitting the adorable ears that helped make Nora famous, and @dchsgiveshelter for introducing me to my best friend.
So, how did Nora come into my life? As a certified veterinary technician, I stumbled upon her up-for-adoption post on Dane County Humane Society’s Facebook page while at work. Upon seeing her, I knew she was the perfect fit for me. Despite residing in Milwaukee at the time, I left a comment claiming her. Thankfully, a friend agreed to pick her up for me, and my wife met them halfway to bring Nora directly to my workplace for a checkup.
Regarding her name, I wanted something that reflected her unique personality and appearance. After giving it some thought, I settled on “Nora No Ears.” Over time, this transformed into “Nora Jean the Earless Queen,” which suits her perfectly.
