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 .

Likely Norwegian Forest Cat

Is it important if your cat is a possible purebred cat? Of course not. Unless your heart is really set on a purebred cat. But if you really love cats you will get the same if not more fun and pleasure from being the human companion to a beautiful moggie, particularly a rescued moggie. After all they need us more. That makes a difference.

Anyway, here is a cat whose human caretaker describes as a "likely Norwegian Forest Cat". He looks like one. But we can never tell from appearance alone. You need a pedigree in writing and certified to be certain! The Siberian for one is a breed that is similar to the NFC. And sometimes a Maine Coon can look like an NFC. They do have a similar background it is said.

His name is Boobear and he smiles a lot. This "smile" may be due to his mouth being slightly open and the shape of his mouth. Cats do leave their mouths slightly open fairly frequently sometimes with their tongue sticking out slightly.

This can be (1) smelling better using the sensitive glands in the roof of the mouth or (2) breathing better i.e. when purring. Although cats can purr while the mouth is closed and when drinking (e.g. mother's milk when a kitten).
