Nori, the black house panther from Vancouver, was put up for adoption at over one year old on Facebook. And just because her original humans didn’t want her anymore. They were going to put her down, but a kind neighbor took her in until they could find a new home. Nori soon brought new life to her forever home and brought joy to many fans on social media.
Although her previous humans abandoned her, her new family rolled out a welcome mat with her likeness on it.
“We wanted a cute welcome mat to show who’s the owner of the house, but it just became her personal scratching post. You can barely see the cat now. ”
She’s so elegant, with the brightest golden eyes and a funny purrsonality. Here she is on her adoption day on February 1, 2022. She looks like a work of art amid the pretty houseplants. Here’s a list of cat-friendly plants for your home.
“Find Nori Friday!” posts on Instagram asked followers to spot the cat in the photos. But fans say Nori is a “professional ninja” with no problem hiding in plain view.
The example below is one of the most challenging.
Below, she looks ready to pounce at the camera, which she probably did a second later.
Sometimes, when she goes into her “hiding stance,” that means “Watch out!” She’s ready to pounce on her favorite toy!
“When Nori is in her hiding stance, it’s every man for himself. You put the wand toy directly at the feet of your worst enemy. Or your husband,” Nori’s meowmom shared.
What Nori’s family learned is that playing hide and seek became a daily routine with Nori. She also enjoys taking the challenge up a notch to hide in unexpected places.
“They looked everywhere for me today, but I just watched them struggle for an hour. 😌”
When she’s not hiding, Nori is boldly out in the open. She’s crazy and unpredictable; you never know when she might leap into silly attack mode.
“She’s beauty. She’s grace. She’s gonna annihilate the human race. 💅”
Raising Awareness for Black Cats
Nori’s name is the same as the tasty seaweed wrap from sushi, and she seems right at home in her cute sushi bed.
“Didn’t think a perfect cat bed for Nori existed.”
While her former family may have abandoned her, those days are over. She’s the Queen of her new home, and her hoomans love her for it. Nori is also helping raise awareness for black cats, who, despite being wonderful in every way, still face higher euthanasia and adoption rates from most shelters in North America.
“Their coats look as if they’re made of glitter ✨”
