Her practice tree
A neighbor found her in a window well, and we adopted her. The vet says she's about a year old, and of all the characteristics an NFC has
she matches perfectly.
She has taken to the leash rather well, and asks for her daily walk around the outside of the house in any weather and in as much as 7" of snow. She wakes me up in the morning by licking my nose!
Hi Gregg...I had to publish this because she looks typical Norwegian Forest Cat climbing a tree with snow on the ground. I can imagine what an original NFC might be up to hundreds of years ago in the forests of Norway.
The experts say that only a very few cats can climb down a tree head first. One of them is the Margay, the most acrobatic of all cats, wild or domestic. Most cats shimmy down gingerly.
I had a small NFC mix who only once got a chance to climb a tree as she lived in central London, England. But when she did climb it, she went 30 feet straight to the top and charged down head first dodging all the branches - spectacular.
Thanks for sharing and saving a cat, Gregg and please come back.
