Nora's Not Playing 'Melancholy Baby': The Piano-Playing Tabby Wins ASPCA Cat of the Year Award


When Betsy Alexander and Burnell Yow of Philadelphia, PA, visited an animal shelter in Cherry Hill, NJ, they never imagined they would adopt a feline prodigy.

Nora, a grey Tabby named after the surrealist painter Leonora Carrington, appeared to be your average mischievous young kitten.

But this seemingly ordinary shelter cat is receiving an extraordinary honor next week, when she will be officially named Cat of the Year at the annual ASPCA Humane Awards in New York City.

For a complete list of this year’s award winners, including a guide dog for a disabled Iraq War veteran and two undercover agents who assisted in the largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history, check out the ASPCA website.
