Zallykatz Rebecca Heslop & Sherri Amirault
Sherri Amirault came to Norway, from Canada, February 2008 and bought 3 Bengal kittens from me for Zallycatz, a cattery owned by her brother Darryl and sister in law Rebecca Heslop.
After Sherri returned, 4 additional kittens were sent to Canada. The kittens were to be sold and after my shipping expenses were covered, the profit would be shared.
In May 2008 they told me they were having difficulty selling. The kittens (all male) were nearing 6 months and were kept in cat carriers to prevent fighting and spraying urine.
I considered the project a write-off and an embarrassing fiasco. I am ashamed that I am indirectly responsible for these kittens being kept in cat carriers and the other regrettable consequences this affair has had for some individuals.
All this and the fact I was occupied with a girl in Denmark caused my contact with the Canadians to diminish.

June 2008 I received a complaint from a woman that had bought one of the kittens.

The kitten was very skittish, refused to eat or leave its cat carrier. In my opinion this is psychological damage caused by confinement over long periods of time. I have worked professionally for more than 30 years with humans with such diagnosis as "###ed", "psychotic", "autistic" etc. We see similar behavior in humans that have been restrained or confined for extensive periods of time. The late Solveig Møskedal whom I worked professionally with is a good example of this.
The buyer tried to return the cat in accordance with a written guarantee that clearly stated the kitten could be returned "for any reason" but was refused. Sherri dealt with the buyer in a rude, belligerent and threatening manner. Examples from Sherri's e-mail:

"You are talking out your ### and don't have a clue. Could you be any more dramatic?"

"I found them all nice homes but one, yours. I can tell that I was right about you, you are going to stomp your feet and have a tantrum aren't you princess. Well you go ahead, do what you have to, I have done nothing wrong. "

"Maybe we should meet in person and talk. I am sure you would have lots to say to me then!!!"

"I know where you live, no need to give directions!"

I told Sherri and Rebecca to:
1. return the money immediately
2. to stop threatening and behaving rudely to the buyer
3. to inform me about where the other 3 cats were
4. to pay me my share of the money

This resulted in blackmail attempts and threats.
I was told if I did not shut up:
They would contact tax authorities and allege I cheat on taxes, contact my son's mother and allege I cheat on child support, contact animal welfare authorities and allege I abuse my cats. They also would contact social security authorities and allege I was faking my disability and fraudulently receiving disability pension.

I did not shut up. The Canadian family launched an extensive campaign of malicious libel, harassment, counter accusations and childish shenanigans.

Some examples:

Rebecca Heslop made a YouTube account called using the false name "electricworries". She claimed her school was "Western University" and her occupation was "Legal Assistant and Vet Technician". This channel was used to publish malicious libel on YouTube. For example:

"when i was in the office today i ran a check on you and yes you have been convicted. "

" He IS convicted and also under investigation for child abuse and for cat neglect as well. True."

"The only proof i've seen is the conviction of you Mr. Norton."

Sherri and Rebecca's libel and slander range from posting comments, mostly on YouTube, accusing me of drug abuse, child abuse, sexual abuse, animal abuse, sexually assaulting my son, to infantile comments about psychiatric illnesses they allege I or my friends suffer from. Numerous references to Dildos, incontinence diapers (Depends), Viagra, hemorrhoid medication, sexual lubricants, homosexuality etc. They have produced and posted between 25 and 30 videos containing similar material. As of May 2011 they have made over 80 YouTube accounts to publish libel and insults. Attacks are directed at anyone who dares to question their methods. See - Sherri Amirault and Rebecca cyber-bullying YouTube videos

They have made YouTube accounts like "Richardhectornorton", "richardnorton3". These accounts were used to send vile messages to my friends and the grandchildren of my friends. For example:

"Bend over and prepare to be ###ed"

"I want to shoot a big load between your tits" (sent to 6 year old granddaughter of a friend.)

See page - Vile comments and shenanigans & The Solveig Møskedal project and ApparentlyIDo's channel documents Sherri's sexual verbiage supposedly coming from Solveig, which was written on numerous places of YouTube.

Several attempts have been made to infect my and other's computers (Venney's) with viruses. Emails were received that were supposedly from persons that were concerned that they may have bought one of the stolen kittens from Zallycatz. Attached to the mail were a virus disguised as video or pictures of the kitten or pedigrees. See page about the Latest Canadian Shenanigans.

They have 3 times hacked my YouTube account.

Rebecca Heslop (Zallykatz) was eventually banned (2009) from the Kool Kats Club. Shortly after a YouTube channel called "KoolKatzClub" (spelled with "z") was made with the following profile text:

"Denise Mayhew...DRUG DEALER? Recently complaints were made to police about the KoolKatzClub president Denise Mayhew. Witnesses reported she and her husband have been selling illegal drugs from their Stoney Creek home. Ms. Mayhew is also being investigated by the Hamilton SPCA for suspected animal neglect."

Rebecca and Sherri using channels they created to hide their identity (electricworries, RidanosLies, SherriandDansing, RichardtheABUSER, KoolKatzClub etc) made comments about this on their own and others channels. For example:

"i'm not spreading rumors about anybody. I know for a fact that Denise was reported." Electricworries reply to Venniey.

See page about Electricworries and this currently active channel

Sherri Amirault sent several death threats to a person in New Jersey.

"Listen you little ###, my patience are running thin, "

"Richard will not live, you have no idea how dangers this just became for him.I am completely serious, yuo have no idea of who you are messing with.I don't mean me, he is one conversation away from his demise."

See page about death threats.

I received an email March 2010 from Canadian authorities. They were investigating, among other things, fraud and misrepresentation involving social assistance recipients.
They were interested in documentation to show that cats/kittens were sold
to either Sherri Amirault or Rebecca Heslop.
They were interested in documentation verifying that Sherri Amirault or Rebecca Heslop were ever in Europe or outside Canada. They also wanted to know how I knew that Darryl Amirault was the father of Zoey and the husband of Rebecca.

Precisely one hour and 38 minutes later venniey and I each received the following email from Sherri with the subject "TAX EVASION !!!" and containing the address and telephone to the Norwegian Tax Administration:

From [protected]
Subject: TAX EVASION !!!

"Follo Tax
West Route 20,
1400 Ski, Norway

Po Box 94,
1401 SKI

Tel: 81 58 18 10
Fax: 64 85 11 01"

Apparently this was supposed to be a threat. (Threats didn't work.) See following links:

    My name is Vennie Yancy. This is the second profile Sherri Amero AKA Sherri Amirault has created in my name, the other is Venniey, profile767507 .
    Instead of posting under her own name, she is illegally posting as me, she does not have permission to do so.

    Her statements here are completely false. Richard never lost custody of his son, he never beat his son. Sherri made a false report against Richard Norton's cattery and when the authorities investigated, they gave him a clean "bill of health" in writing which he has framed and posted in his home. It states in Norwegian that:
    *the cats had access to out door closed area, climbing things, and cat wheel
    *cats had free acces to water and food of good quality
    *all the cats were normal weight, pelts and claws were in good condition
    *cattery was clean, tidy with good solutions for animal welfare
    I will post a picture of the report tomorrow.

    Sherri developed a severe crush on Richard and was neurotically distressed when she found out he had a girlfriend. Her brother, Darryl Amirault, and the mother of his child, Rebecca Heslop, (although he did not put his name on the child's birth certificate so Rebecca could receive Welfare) bought two of Richard's cats. Four kittens were shipped to be sold in Ontario Canada, but Sherri, sold them and kept all the money out of spite when she saw Richard had a girl friend. Read the last line of the Skype Log in the posted picture. She certainly kept her word. The names of over 80 channels that she created to harass are posted on You Tube on the RepeatOffenderMule Channel.
    This video tells the story.

    Again, Sherri is breaking the law using my name here.

    Richard Norton has littered the internet defaming ZallyCatz Bengals for the past 4 years.
    Richards revenge driven vendetta against ZallyCatz Bengal is the direct result of being outed for child and animal abuse by the sister of the owner of ZallyCatz.
    Mr. Norton lost visitation of his son because he assaulted him and was charged in December of 2007. Also child protective services went to Mr. Norton house and discovered the horrific conditions his son had been living in. Animal protection services were also contacted and Mr. Nortons kitten mill was shut down. He blames Sherri for it all and has been attacking her family and friends for 4 years.
    Mr. Norton has been collecting a disability pension from the Norwegian Gov't for the past 5 years for the thrombosis he sustained back in Oct. 2007. He is not able to work because of the brain damage and physical limitations he has from the thrombosis.
