ABOUT THE IMAGE AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE

This Norwegian Forest Cat is a natural breed adapted to a very cold climate, with a top coat of glossy, long, water-shedding hair and a woolly undercoat for insulation. The origin of the Norwegian Forest Cat is not clear, but it is believed the breed’s ancestors may have originated from cats brought to Norway by the Vikings around 1000 AD. It is theorized that these same Viking cats were also ancestors of the modern Siberian and Turkish Angora cat breeds.
