About the breed

The Norwegian Forest Cat (NFC) is a breed of domestic cat which although native to Northern Europe and thus well suited to a cold climate they have adapted to our Australian heat well. In Norway they are known as skogkatter or the Norsk skogkatt (literally Norwegian Forest Cat).  They are also known in the USA by their nickname Weggie. Norse mythology refers to a cat so large that even the God Thor couldn’t lift it from the ground and the Goddess of Love and Fertility.
