After the week Norm's had, we can't say we blame him.
The orange-and-white haired cat is content to pass the time until Saturday by closing his eyes and wishing it would be here sooner, something a few of us probably wish we were doing, too.
But while our lives have probably been filled with the usual routine, things got a little crazy for Norm this past week.

Katy Perry's new single "Roar" wouldn't be complete without a feline face. Luckily, the singer has a cat on-call with lots of ex-purr-ience.
Perry's best furry buddy, Kitty Purry – who the singer has called her company's CEO – makes a brief appearance in a lyric video for her new song.
"Now YOU can #ROAR louder than a lion too! Lyric video starring Myself, Kitty Purry & some of my closest buds here," Perry Tweeted on Monday. The clip's grand finale features the feline suspended in air, while a woman, whom we believe is the singer herself, coos at her.

Is that cat performing at New York's Shakespeare in the Park?
No, that would be a stretch. But what is literally a stretch is this British Shorthair jumping eight inches off the ground in desperate pursuit of a tortoiseshell butterfly in Denmark.
And lucky for 8-year-old Misha, her owner, and photographer, Kemal Selimovic was there to bear witness.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today we'd like you to meet Melo, a social 7-year-old cat who has rubbed up on a lot of legs in her long life.
The senior kitty came into the care of the San Francisco SPCA in February, and in that time she's made it very clear that she wants to be pet – all of the time. So stop what you're doing, and get on that now, please?
"With her soft, fluffy fur, she's hard to resist," says a bio on the shelter's website. But Melo isn't all pampering and no play: "Get her running and jumping and you can literally watch the fur fly," the bio continues.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Meet Dee Dee, a 27-lb. cat who's trying to get back on track.
In June, the full-figured feline was given up by her owner to the Dumb Friends League of Denver, Colo., with a lot of extra girth, likely due to overeating and consuming excessive amounts of treats.
She was quickly put into a foster home, her temporary owners tasked with helping her drop those first few pounds. Now, Dee Dee, who is 3 years old, gets daily exercise and is on a special diet for weight control.

Maybe Grumpy Cat is actually just caffeine deprived?
If that's the case, the downtrodden cat's frown should turn upside down in September when her new premium coffee beverage hits the market.
The Grumppuccino, as the new drink is called, will come in three flavors (coffee, mocha and vanilla – sadly for Grumpy, no tuna), reports Adweek. It will be sold in stores and online come this fall, and features Grumpy Cat's mega-famous mug on its bottles.

We know, we know – you've all seen (and fallen in love with!) Taylor Swift's cat, Meredith.
Now, do a double take: This isn't the pop singer's precious puss. Meet Roku, your new favorite Instagram-famous cat, who is bound to hit Swift-level stardom. (Fact: Roku already has more than 125,000 followers – and counting!)
Just when you thought you've seen every a-meow-sing kitty on the internet, Roku is here to rock your world (wide web). "I have aerodynamic ears and silver fur," reads the cat's Instagram profile description. "I eat rainbows and poop butterflies."

June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat month and it's our mission to help felines everywhere find a place to call home. Today, we'd like you to meet Luke, a former stray who loves to play.

"He's very friendly, really calm, and loves to play," says shelter employee Jessica Maymard. "He likes to cuddle and never squirms away from you."

Taylor Swift's evenings are pretty low-key. When she's not performing, it's just the singer, her cat – oh, and you know, Leonardo DiCaprio!
"At 9pm, I'm either onstage or I'm doing this," Swift wrote with her first Vine video posted Wednesday, which shows the singer watching Titanic on a couch as her beloved Scottish fold, Meredith, looks on.
