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!
Most Common Norwegian Forest Cat Health Problems
While it is typical to expect any breed of cat to have some health issues, Norwegian Forest Cats can have both genetic and inherited health problems. If a cattery claims that their Norwegian Forest Cats are in perfect health and will never have any health issues, take this as a major red flag. The breeder should be deeply knowledgable and honest about two very common health problems in particular that frequently occur during a Wegie’s lifetime.
Male vs. Female Norwegian Forest Cats
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!
