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 .

Four Norwegian Forest Cat Kittens

Here is a thumbnail picture of four Norwegian Forest Cat kittens. Please click on the photograph to see a large format version and a bit of chat about this cat: Great photo from a great cat photographer, Helmi Flick. She has taken thousands of fine cat photographs, many of which are the equal of this one. This photo, by the way, is a thumbnail meaning if you click on it you can see it in a larger format plus some more words. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. What about these cats? Well, I find it hard to work out some of the cat coats because they are so subtly different sometimes. Someone will no doubt correct me but the cat on the right is a dilute calico , the cat in the middle is a dilute red and white classic tabby and the other two are grey (or brown/grey) classic tabby and white cats with only the smallest area of white under the chin.

Titran's Gabrielle d'Estrée Norwegian Forest Cat

Another great looking Norwegian Forest Cat with one of those glamorous show cat names: Titran's Gabrielle d'Estrée. The photographer is Gabrielle's human companion. He is Pieter Lanser. Pieter might correct me but Gabrielle appears to be a brown classic tabby and white Norwegian Forest Cat. She looks classy and she is holding her gaze into the camera nicely. Cats don't always do that. Update 6th Aug: Here are two photographs, the top one of three kittens, Querida, Quasimodo and Qamra, born and raised at the Titran's Norsk Skogkatt cattery during 2010.
