Norwegian Forest Cat

The Norwegian Forest Cat is gorgeous, having bright emerald green eyes, a long flowing, silky coat, full mane, and magnificent 30.5 centimetre tail. This people-oriented breed is gentle and loving, including to other animals. A hardy, healthy feline that is naturally curious and athletic, the Norwegian Forest Cat is patient and not stressed easily. This breed is slow maturing, reaching full growth in about five years.
Living Considerations
