A-Z: Norwegian Forest Cat
The Norwegian Forest Cat is the official cat of Norway. It has a dense double coat that is weatherproofed and long tufts of fur between its toes to prevent frostbite. Except for its head, which is an equilateral triangle, it resembles the Maine Coon. It has a tendency for kidney issues but otherwise is considered hearty. With its calm temperament this is another good cat for the first time cat owner. The Wegie sheds heavily in the spring and requires extra brushing. If you are looking to adopt a Wegie, please try your local rescue or shelter, or Petfinder.com or Overstock.com.
