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 .

Year Norwegian Forest Cat Introduced

This list shows the year that the NFC was introduced to selected countries:
  • Australia: First introduced in the late 1990s
  • Japan: First introduced in the early 1990s
  • United States: First introduced in 1979
  • United Kingdom: First introduced in 1986
  • South Africa: First recognised in 1994
These dates are all relatively recent bearing in mind that the show cat career or career as a purebred cat, started in 1930. Before that the Norwegian Forest Cat was a moggie or random bred cat in Norway.

Indeed a vet (Dr Clark) who has assessed the genetic diseases of purebred cats says that the recent history of this breed makes it more difficult to assess genetically inherited diseases. He is based in the USA.
