The history of the Norwegian Forest Cat is by far one of the most interesting among the many breeds. The “Wegie” (as it is affectionately known) is an increasingly popular breed with US and UK cat fanciers, however this was not the case until fairly recently.
Norwegian Forest Cats, the beautiful and playful cats of Norway, are becoming a more popular breed around the world every year. Their kind, loving, and gentle personality combined with a distinctly beautiful appearance has made the Wegie a favorite among fanciers and families alike.
So you’ve decided you want a Wegie kitten. Great! But you need to make sure that you adopt or buy one from the right places–a shelter or an established reputable breeder.
