Huge Norwegian Forest Cat the size of a large Maine Coon

On average, the Norwegian Forest Cat (NFC) is smaller than the Maine Coon but there are exceptions and this is one of them. Not all MCs are larger than NFCs. This TikTok video illustrates the point. This NFC is very classic in terms of 'type' meaning desired appearance as per the breed standard. Super appearance. Huge Norwegian Forest Cat the size of a large Maine Coon. Image: MikeB from screenshots. Here is the video. For me it is a bit irritating because of the soundtrack. Horrible for me. But the point is made about size. This is a great NFC. A classic in terms of coat: a grey tabby-and-white. It is his size which is untypical for this breed although they are one of the largest domestic cat breeds challenging the supremacy of the Maine Coon sometimes .

Norwegian Forest Cat running down a tree head first

Here is a great Wikimedia Commons photo of an NFC running down a vertical tree head first. How can they do that?

As the claws face backwards there can be little grip to slow down the descent. However, the claws must be used and the little gained must be enough to slow the descent sufficiently to make it manageable.

This is what the NFC is famed for. Mine could do the same and I watched so this is no fake.
