The Norwegian Forest Cat is a large, slow-maturing breed, with strong legs, a long body, a bushy tail and striking eyes, . Hardy, intelligent and muscular, 'Wegies' love to climb and hunt. With a love of water and a water-repellent coat, they're great at fishing, too. They are sociable and friendly, enjoying the company of their human family and that of other pets, and are unhappy when left alone for long periods.
