All about Norman
Unfortunately the following two scenarios occur from time to time: You’re innocently petting your cat or dog when all of a sudden your pet bites you. The same reaction can happen when you pick up your cat or dog the way you always do, when all of a sudden it bites you. What is going on here? Your pet NEVER bites you, and now that you are trying to show it some love, it bites you. Has your pet gone mad? What might be going on here is pain induced aggression.
It seems so obvious after you bring your pet to a veterinarian to figure out what is going on, but it may be as simple as pain induced aggression. Pain induced aggression means that your pet has exhibited an aggressive behaviour because it is in pain. This is especially common in older pets that may be suffering from arthritis or perhaps one of their internal organs is bruised or diseased.

Norman was diagnosed with an agressive cancer in his mouth. He went from his normal bouncy Tigger-like self to a very unhappy kitty in three weeks.
Norman was born on March 17, 1988, so he had a good 14 years being spoiled rotten. He was the cat that sold me on cats - he was truly an ambassador for the breed, turning many cat-haters into cat owners. He identified with dogs since he spent his first six months of his life living with them -- he walked on a leash, he fetched a ball, he came running when you came home.
He is survived by his furry brother, Eppy, who will be an only cat for a while.
He will be missed but his memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew him.
