Noro was a stray cat before her owner found her. Her owner is an island designer who also runs a flower shop on weekdays. He found her on the doorstep of a ramen shop just right next to his office. When he saw the small black kitten, he made up his mind to take care of her there and then.
Their fateful meeting happened when Noro’s owner was heading home for the New Year. Thus, he brought back his new furry friend to his hometown. During the trip, he was worried if Noro can adapt to the remoteness of the area since the cat was only two months old at that time. But to his surprise, Noro was a very calm and relaxed kitten.
When they returned after New Year, Noro’s owner gradually took her out for walks more often.
Her first adventure includes riding a variety of transportation such as bullet trains.
Whilst Noro had been travelling to different places across the island with her human companion, she has never tried going abroad. Not until her owner read a book about pooches traveling to Europe. This sparked the idea to bring his beloved cat with him on his travels with his wife around Europe.
