Nori is a sweet little calico cat who lives in an apartment on the upper (upper) west side. She used to be an alley cat, begging passersby for scraps, until my sister scooped her up and gave her a forever home.
Little Nori became fat and cantankerous and had to be put on an eating regimen and diet. Now slim and sleek, her new new look has brought out a sweet side and more gentle temperament.
These calico cookies are named for Nori.
