Four Norwegian Forest Kittens in Profile — 5 Comments

  1. I have the weirdest brain. I love the larger breed cats (Maine Coons, Weggies, Ragdoll, Angora, etc) and the smaller of the exotic wild breeds (African Blackfooted, Kodkod, Manul, Sandcats, etc.) Either way… in 1998 the Guinness World Record for ‘Biggest Domestic Cat’ was a Maine Coon from Vermisso Cats named Leo. They later change it to ‘Longest Domestic Cat’. Leo was 48 inches or four feet (1.19 meters). Now another Maine Coon named Stewie beat him out with 48 1/2 inches (1.232 meters). I have rights to use Leo’s pix on my large breed cat Flickr group: Here is my favorite: http://www.flickr.com/photos/shohom67/2220862097/in/set-72157601245888715 (Leo at 13 weeks!)

    Anyway, my point is… that although Weggies just plain sexy beasts (as we say here in the states about cars, etc.) and they get an extra year of growth (Maine Coons-5 yrs vs. Weggies-6 yrs.) They seem to top out at 28 lbs/ 12.7kg, where Maine Coons go up to 35 lbs/15.88kg. So you’re right. 🙂

    @Michael: I have a large pool of cat photos on my Flickr group. I have notified group members that I may share their pix/vids unless they turn the share/copy links off. I have a graphic that I post in the comments of each pix I use in my blog, on Facebook/Twitter, etc, so they know. Feel free to use the pix that are available for blogs.

  2. I wonder how old these kittens are. I’m guessing 4-5mos. Beautiful shots. These kittens are good size, not telling how big they will be once they reach maturity (takes six full years with Weggies). Thanks!

    • I don’t know how old they but as you say they do look a decent size. Adult weggies are on the large side of average, aren’t they? They are a bit smaller than Maine Coons. They fall into the same bracket as the Real Turkish Angora in that the moggie weggie counterpart to the refined cat fancy kitten you see above, is on the streets and in the barns of Norway.
