Norwegian Forest Cat Picture

Contents: Slides Breed Standards
If you’re after an excellent Norwegian Forest Cat picture I think that you have come to the right place. You’ve probably got the best photographs on the internet of the Norwegian Forest Cat in the slide show below. This is because a lot of the photographs are by Helmi Flick. She has kindly allowed me to use her photographs to illustrate this website as the proceeds of this website goes to improving the welfare of cats. This attests to Helmi’s generosity as well as her skill. She is ably assisted by the skill of her husband, Ken, the cat wrangler. He maneouvres the cats into position. The other photos are by talented amateurs who usually live with fantastic cats.

If you have photographs that you’d like published on this website, please contact me or upload them yourself using the form on this page. The Norwegian Forest Cat is a handsome and distinguished cat so I am sure that you have a fine Norwegian Forest Cat picture somewhere on your computer if you live with one.

Just below the slide show I go over and compare the breed standards of four major cat associations to make a comparison between them (they are very similar). You can also make a comparison between the standards and the cats in the slide show and if you live with a Norwegian Forest Cat, between your cat and the standard.

Norwegian Forest Cat Breed Standards (outline only):       return to contents
Generalsturdy – double coat – slow maturingThe product of their natural evolution carry through to the show ring (i.e. TICA expect to see the characteristics that allowed this cat to survive as a semi-wild cat). These include: semi-long water repellant coat, well proportioned, strong and intelligent. large – heavy boned – elegant – most important feature being type and coat quality – the cat’s natural hearitage should be reflected in the appearance of the cat.large
Headequilateral triangle – neck short, heavily muscledtriangular – all sides of equal lengthtriangular all sides equal – long straight profilesame as CFA, TICA, GCCF
Bodysolidly muscled – well balanced – moderate length – males large and imposing –medium long – substantial –big – strong -muscular – solid bone structurelong – strongly built – solid bone structure
Coatdense undercoat (full development in winter) – long smooth glossy guard hairs – type/quality more important than pattern – should be clear and distinct – every pattern/color is allowed except coats showing signs of “hybridization”dense wolly undercoat – water repellant upper coat – ruff and britches – all colors of all divisions of traditional category allowedthis mirrors CFA and TICAsame as the others
Comment: the associations are very much in harmony. Both TICA and GCCF refer in general terms to the evolution of the cat to guide judges. Three major characteristics shine through – (a) the coat quality is important and (b) this cat is large and strong with a particular (c) head shape in which the three sides of the head are of equal length. See the Japanese Bobtail breed standard for the same head shape. The FIFe standard is concise.
