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 .

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.

  4. Hi, I have just noticed that you say he is a she! Sorry, I have amended the post.

    What happened was that working too fast, I converted Gabrielle's name to Tristran!! And it all went wrong from there....Thanks for the correction.
