Norman was abandoned by his previous owners and then was taken to an animal shelter. Thankfully, a couple named Annette and Steve McDonalds rescued him from the shelter the day before he was scheduled to be euthanized.
Shortly after bringing home Norman, the couple noticed there was something wrong with his eyesight. They took him to the vet and found out that he had Retinal Atrophe, a genetic disease with no cure, which would then cause to blindness.
