Norwegian Forest

Feature image

Playful, friendly, and easy going.

The Norwegian Forest Cat has a large and athletic appearance. They are an ancient breed that originated over 500 years ago in Norway and has evolved into the tough and robust breed we know today. They are natural athletes and love to investigate their environment. Norwegian Forest cats remain playful and active into adulthood and although they are not usually lap cats, they love human companionship.

Perhaps due to their long history, they are very easy going and take new people and environments in their stride. This breed requires regular brushing, especially in Spring when they shed their heavy winter coat.

Norwegian Forest Cats get on well with other pets and are suitable for families with children. Rather than developing a strong bond with one person, they tend to enjoy the company of everyone unconditionally. They are very affectionate and love a cuddle or receiving chin scratches.
