Kaley Cuoco, actress and avid animal lover, took to Instagram on Sunday to share the sad news that her beloved pit bull Norman had passed away.
She shared photos of herself and ‘soulmate’ Norman and wrote, “earth shattering deep gut wrenching pain I didn’t know was possible. Norman, you were my entire world for 14 years. Thank you for smiling at me as you left this world, confirming for me once again our language was ours alone. You will always have my heart.”
Kaley adopted Norman when he was roughly two-years-old after he was found tied to a pole in the pouring rain. The shelter named him Storm but Kaley changed his name to Norman or Norm for short.
He has been by her side through good and bad times. “My main man !! Norman, love of my life for always 🐶 This guy has saved me in more ways than I can explain,” she said of her faithful pal.
Anyone who knew Kaley knew Norman. The actress and producer even named her film and television production company -Yes, Norman Productions- after her beloved pit bull. Their bond was undeniable and shared with the world in a recent video captioned, “No caption necessary.”
