Not all of Sacramento’s Fat Cats are in the Capitol Building. Please say hi to Norm Lopez! Norm accidentally ended up at the Sacramento Front Street Shelter when a stranger mistook him for a pregnant cat in distress. A shelter employee recognized Norm and he was soon reunited with his owner. As a result, Norm now has instant Internet Cult Hero Status– he’ll be hosting a pub crawl August 31st to benefit the shelter!
CO caught up last night with Norm’s Official Hoomin, and we asked Tyler Lopez about his name. Why Norm? “Sounds like a big boy name- it just suited him!”
