Facts About Norwegian Forest Cats:
1. They're warrior cats. The breed's origins are a source of mystery. Norwegian forest cats could be related to black-and-white short-haired cats from Great Britain used by Vikings as mousers on their ships, or they might also be descendants of long-haired cats brought to Scandinavia by Crusaders. Roaming Norway’s forests, breeding with feral felines and barn cats over centuries they evolved into the large, dense-coated animal we know and love today.
2. Norwegian forest cats are mythical creatures. Norwegian myths tell of the Skogkatt (translates to “Forest Cat”), a large, long-haired "mountain-dwelling fairy cat with an ability to climb sheer rock faces. The Skogkatt was beloved by Freya, the Norse goddess of love and beauty. She traveled in a feline-drawn chariot.
3. They're Norway's national cat. King Olaf V of Norway designated the Norwegian forest cat the country’s national cat. No word on whether America will ever gain its own national feline.
4. The cat breed is big in Europe. Norwegian forest cats have a lot of fans throughout Europe, especially Scandinavia. (In fact, Norwegian forest cats are nicknamed “Wegies,” which is short for “Norwegians.”)
5. Norwegian forest cats are huge. Norwegian forest cats are way larger than most cats—and some small dogs, for that matter. Typical male Norwegian forest cats can range anywhere from 13 to 22 pounds.
6. Norwegian forest cats have built-in winter clothes. Although Norwegian forest cats can be any color or pattern, they do have one thing in common: a long, double-layered, water repelling coat. They also have tufted ears and toes, which work like built-in earmuffs and boots helping the breed survive snowy Scandinavian winters.
7. Norwegian forest cats are great at climbing trees. Ever seen a cat run down a tree headfirst? If you have, it was most likely a Norwegian forest cat. The cats have sturdier claws than most breeds, allowing them to achieve impressive climbing feats.
