Norwegian Forest Cat

Drawings of Norwegian Forest Cats in various postures

The Norwegian Forest cat, also known as the Skogcatt, is a semi-longhaired cat native to Norway and originating in North Europe. Its hairy and rugged appearance is the result of its adaptation to a cold climate, having water-shedding hairs, a woolen underbelly, a bushy tail, and tufted paws. The Norwegian Forest cat has a strong build and even stronger claws, known to be an excellent climber. Highly intelligent and generally bursting with energy, the Norwegian Forest cat adjusts well to change all with a friendly demeanor.
