From Petfinder – Natural athletes, the Norwegian Forest Cat loves to investigate counters, bookcases, and the loftiest peaks of their cat trees. Wegies are active and playful and retain their fun-loving spirit well into adulthood, but don’t be fooled by the breed’s impressive muscles and all-weather exterior. They are sweet, friendly, and family-oriented, and they love their human companions. Because of those harsh survival years (perhaps), nothing fazes them much, either. They take new people and new situations in stride; as cats go, Forest Cats are the strong, silent types.
Even though the Norwegian Forest Cat can seem to look like one of the tougher cats (and they are) we’ve heard nothing but sweet stories about this breed. If any of you out there own a Norwegian Forest cat we’d love for you to send in any photos you might have. Also please share any video or stories. In the meantime please enjoy this gallery of pictures of both cats and kittens of this wonderful breed. Be sure to click “next” beneath each picture to view them all!
