I see that my breed is being celebrated on Catster this week, so I thought it would be a good time to tell you a little about us. It is said that Norwegian Forest cats (Norsk Skogatt) appeared from the cold northern forests of Norway about 4000 years ago. Their thick, waterproof haircoats protected them from the cold snowy winters. They are said to have explored the world with the Vikings, protecting their grain supplies on both land and sea. NFC's are also great hunters. (yes, you should have seen my sister Sissel jump straight up in the air and run away when a gopher popped it's little head up from a hole she was guarding the other day!). The Vikings would have not been proud, but she is a silly girl afterall . . . So maybe we have lost our hunting skills a little over the years, but we do still make wonderful pets and love our families, both 2 legged and 4 legged members. And what could be more important than that?
