Nero My Norwegian Forest Cat?

Nero

My beautiful cat Nero was a lost kitty and has lived with us for 6 years. I'm not 100% sure he even is a Norwegian Forest, so maybe someone could tell me. He was living in my neighbors bushes when we took him in. He likes the water and can jump pretty high. He weighs 14lbs and seems to fit the other descriptions but I'm still not sure.

Pippin

I have a cat that is the spitting image of Nero, but he has double paws...loves the snow and does not mind going out in the rain..has double paws and is a good mouser..however, he likes to scratch.:( he was dumped off at my house in a snowstorm when he was a kitten. He is now six years old and huge...

Oscar the NFC?
by: Anonymous

This is Oscar. He's about 2 years old, weighs 20lbs., and displays all the characteristics of a NFC. Since I adopted him from the local Humane Society, I can't be 100% positive he's a true NFC, but I'm 90% sure that's what he is.

Cat Lover
by: David

I own a 21 year old NFC, she is the most loving and rewarding little cat i have ever owned. i rescued her from a cat rescue centre after she was abused by previous owners. i got her at the age of four and couldn't imagine life without her now.

Impressive
by: Finn Frode, Denmark

A very impressive looking cat he is - and he has some fine tufts on his paws. Nothing I see talks against NFC, but we'll never know whether it's a teaspoon or the whole bucket. 😉
He seems to be a wonderful cat - thank you for the pictures.

More Pics
by: Michael

Here are some more pics of Nero. Thanks Tawnie:

Nero a black and white cat who could be a Norwegian Forest Cat

Nero is very handsome. He has a lot of fur between his toes. And I love the expression in the photo by the door. Quizzical. And saying, "get on with it".

Nero
by: Finn Frode, Denmark

Hi again Tawnie. I'd love to see more pictures of Nero. Search for a page called 'Creator of Pictures of Cats' and you'll find Michael's adress at the bottom. I don't think he will mind if you mail him a picture or two. 😉
Anyway, I'm glad you took my answer the way it was intended - I never mean to discourage anybody. Actually a stray cat can be a purebred runaway, but if that can't be documented, it must be labeled a mixed breed.
You can read more on the page 'What Breed Is My Cat?', where Michael very nicely has explained the problem.

Thanks
by: Anonymous

Thanks for the comments, I always wondered what breed he was and the closest I looking breed to him was the NFC. I have a few other better pictures of him but he is definitely a very loved and loving cat! 🙂

Nero
by: Finn Frode, Denmark

Hi Tawnie. I see what you mean, but Nero is not a Norwegian Forest Cat unless he has pedigree papers to prove it. Stray kittens usually don't carry papers with them, nor can they tell us for sure who their parents were. 😉
Like most other cats he is technically a mixed breed domestic, although it is obvious that he has at least some semi-longhair in him.
Whatever his roots are, Nero is great looking in his black and white tuxedo. Pedigree papers say nothing about the inner qualities of a cat, nor do they tell how much it is loved. The fact that you took in a stray cat and that he has become special to you is all that really matters.

Hi Tawnie
by: Michael

Nero is very handsome. He may have Norwegian Forest Cat in him. My first cat was a NFC mix and she jumped and climbed like a tree dwelling wild cat!

Thanks for sharing and showing us Nero.
