Main features
The Norwegian forest cats are large, sturdy, and strong. Adult males weigh anywhere from 5.5 to 7.5 kg (12 – 16.5 lbs), and females from 3.5 to 4.5 kg (7.7 – 10 lbs). Old Norwegian myths described the size of the cat to be so huge, not even the mighty Gods could lift them. One such story suggested that Thor, the God of Thunder and son of Odin Allfather, lost a contest of strength to Jormungand, the serpent son of Loki, the God of mischief. And how did Jormungand win? He was disguised as no other than a Norwegian Forest, of course!

Originating in Northern Europe, the natural breed is adapted to a very cold climate. They are well protected from the water and snow with their insulated, waterproof double coat. “If ever there was a cat built to match its environment, it is the Norwegian Forest Cat. It has developed over many years of natural selection into a breed able to survive the long harsh winters of Norway. – The Cat Fancier’s Association (CFA)
