Hardy, intelligent and muscular, the Norwegian Forest cat is one of the more active breeds of the Felines. Affectionately known as 'Wegies', these cats love to climb and hunt. With a love of water and a water-repellent coat, they're great at fishing, too.
|Long and thick
|Sociable, playful, independent
The Norwegian Forest cat is a lovely cat that will show you lots of affection – but on its own terms.
These adventurous and playful gentle giants eat more than your average feline friend and require a diet high in protein.
Thick and fluffy, Norwegian Forest cat coats can be more high maintenance than others, and will change from season to season.
This lovely cat can be lots of fun but they’ll need access to the outdoors and lots of toys and games to prevent boredom.
Norwegian Forests sometimes suffer with certain health conditions and may require treatment. Petplan cat insurance offers peace of mind that they will always be protected.
