But before we delve into Nora Jean’s story, let’s take a moment to reflect on why social media has become such a source of happiness for many.
Discovering some photos online changed my life about a year ago. I was at work messaging a friend, frantically trying to secure the adoption of a beautiful cat that had stolen my heart. Despite the overwhelming anxiety I was feeling, I knew deep down that this feline was meant to be part of my life.
Miraculously, my wish came true and I was able to adopt her. Since then, Nora has brought an incredible amount of joy and excitement into my world; she even made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show and her story and pictures have been shared worldwide! I feel incredibly fortunate to have Nora in my life and cherish each moment we spend together. It is my sincere hope that we will continue to share many more years together.
I would like to express my gratitude to @ashdc98 for crafting those adorable ears that helped make Nora an internet sensation, as well as @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 adoption post on the Dane County Humane Society’s Facebook page. Instantly, I knew she was the perfect match for me. Although I was living in Milwaukee at the time, I left a comment expressing my interest. Fortunately, a friend stepped up and offered to pick her up for me, and my wife met my friend halfway so that Nora could go straight to me for a check-up. As for her name, I wanted it to reflect her unique personality and appearance. After pondering for a while, I decided on “Nora No Ears.” Over time, her moniker evolved into “Nora Jean the Earless Queen,” which captures her regal spirit perfectly!
