《History》

In Norway,   a myth has been handed down from generation to generation that the God of   Thunder couldn’t pick up a cat because it was too big. Also, Norway has a   legend that the Goddess of Love and Property’s cart was drawn by two big   cats. These legendary cats are said to be Norwegian Forest Cats.
Norwegian Forest Cats (NFCs) first appeared many, many years ago in Northern   Europe. They have adapted to the extreme cold of the Scandinavian Peninsula   and lived together with human beings. Some people say the breed’s ancestors   may have been a crossbreed from Angoras brought to Norway by ships and   short-haired native cats. Other people have different theories about the   origins of the NFC. At first, NFCs were domesticated in order to catch rats   and lived outside houses in a severe cold environment. However, the breed   became nearly extinct until breeders and cats-lovers started to make efforts   to preserve the NFC around 1970. About 1,200 NFCs live in Norway and there is   no danger of them becoming extinct. In 1970, a pair of NFCs was sent to   America. In 1984, the NFC was officially authorized as a pure breed. Since   then, the NFC has become gradually more popular.

《Peculiarities》

The NFC is a strong cat with a sturdy body.   Its forepaws are a little bit longer than its hind legs. So, it looks as if   it is thrusting itself out at the hip. Its most striking feature is the long,   thick glossy and water-repellant top layer, and a woolly undercoat. Such a   gorgeous coat allows it to endure and survive the severe Norwegian climate.

《Characters》

The NFC is a calm cat even though it doesn’t look it. It rarely goes, “meow, meow.” It’s an independent   cat. Its ancestors lived in the great outdoors. The NFC is good at climbing   trees, and it’s a swift and effective hunter. On the other hand, the breed   can adapt to indoor life. NFCs can be friendly, gentle to their owners.   Whenever the owner calls the cat, it dashes off to him/her. It nags around   its owner with its silky voice. It jumps on the owner’s lap and sometimes   sleeps in the same bed as its owner.
