Norwegian Forest Cat

The cat with possible Viking origin

By: Kelly Caldwell


Norwegian Forest Cat- breed profileKnown as the Skogkatt in his native Norway, this large, semi-longhaired cat looks similar to the Maine Coon but his large almond-shaped eyes and wedge-shaped head are clear distinctions. Records don’t exist to confirm it, but speculation is the Vikings brought these cats to Norway. Today’s Norwegian Forest Cat has adapted to its cold native climate, with a double coat that is warm and water resistant. He’s also an expert climber with extremely strong claws.
