    Here are some pics of our Norwegian Forest Cats doing what they do best... cause trouble!

    They are a special breed native to Norway designed (by a thoughtful devine designer we think) to be able to survive in the north. They have:
    a thick long neck ring of fur in winter,
    several kinds of fur for protection - thick under coat, shorter next level and longer guard hairs outside.
    The white ones we have are rather rare and hard to come by because of the dangers of their having genetic hearing problems (one of ours is a tad deaf)
    come down from high places head first in a kind of walk (wierd to see)

    Their names are Ibsen (neck hair looks like Henrik Ibsens beard and sideburns) [/b] and Ingrid

    Ingrid should be called "Greta Garbo" she likes to be alone unless she can irritate Ingrid.

    Grams, your babies are absolutely gorgeous! Show us more!

    I need to post some pix of mine. My Tuffy is a 3-legged mutt-kitty, but his fur is like your Norwegians. And he is HUGE!

    How beautiful!!!
    Are they big or just fluffy??

    I would LOVE to have an all white cat again someday. Ok, I never really had an all white one. The one I was SUPPOSED to have, became Siamese. No one told me Siamese are born all white. lol

    Mine used to try to get into the dishwasher. I don't have one here...oh yes I do...it's ME! lol

    We haveMaine coon cats They are ancestors of your cats. When cats were brought here only the most hard survivedand evolved. There fur is the same. a large maine in the coldest weather. They like water, are gentle and the males are quilt goofy. They seem to like hiGH places and mine used to come dpwn head first. They also love to sleep on their back. These cats come in various colors. your cats are beautiful :D

    Beautiful kitties---the first I've heard of that breed.

    And, look at that, they're going to be helpers in the kitchen, too!
