I must admit I'm proud of the outcome of this picture. I thought it might be blurred. Nora is some cat. I can't wait until you read her story! I would like to give a special thank you to my C2 friend Jo Warner who sent me Nora's video. As she states in her 'meowmoir' her fame started after her parents Betsy and Burnell published her incredible talent on YouTube. Now she has her own line up of merchandise and free ecards on her OWN PAGE. Well, la-tee-dah!! You GO Girl!!

Curiously, I was thinking about Norah as I posted the video of the 'whistling orangutan'--and by golly, here she IS,, in all her feline musical glory...thanks, barbcat K.!

Thanks for commenting, Louise. And friends, please if you can not get to Nora's story with the 'visit site' then please go to I've recieved a lot of comments saying the url is down. That's why I included the entire url.

Love Nora...she reminds me of my sweet baby Daisy, who sadly passed away on December 27, this past Saturday. I haven't been on Care2 for a while as she needed me. Her cancer finally spread to her lungs and her breathing became very laboured. The end came very quickly, and I am still quite emotional. Please everyone who reads this say a prayer for her! She is and always will be me best friend!!!!

I watched both videos. She obviously loves the piano - see how she cuddles it between performances... Ah, thank you for this sweet story.

I watched about 5 videos on her site. She is quite cute. A smart little thing. Nora is so right about how many other intellegent animals there must be out there that never get the chance to have a home and to show off what they can do.
Nora is truely a star.
