Purchasing a purebred Norwegian Forest Cat is a big decision. Finding a reputable, ethical breeder isn’t enough. You’ll also need to perform all the due diligence necessary to ensure your cat’s health and pedigree. It is a time-consuming process, but well worth it!
Norwegian Forest Cats are bigger than most cats and enjoy being around people, hence their popularity in Europe. Whether you adopt a male or female Norwegian Forest Cat ultimately depends on your personal preferences, and more likely will be decided by the particular cat you happen to fall in love with regardless of their gender. In other words, our cats often choose us and not the other way around!
The Norwegian Forest Cat is an intelligent breed. Though independent, they are not defiant by nature and can be obedient when treated well. Norwegian Forest Cats are a popular choice for many families because they are patient and gentle with children. They do not feel threatened by loud and playful kids like other breeds are, and they have a natural affectionate nature toward their immediate family.
