The Wegie is a very family-friendly cat. It is no doubt one of the nicest breeds to own, regardless of how many kids or elderly family members live at home. While it is true that most cats can be trained and conditioned to be compatible with a family and kids, the Norwegian Forest Cat doesn’t need any special training–it is naturally compatible with humans!
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.
