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 .

Hypoallergenic Norwegian Forest Cat

This is a story in the online press about a stray Norwegian Forest Cat (NFC) that is hypoallergenic to the person who rescued or rehomed her.

I have never heard that the NFC is hypoallergenic. Hypoallergenic means less likely to cause an allergic reaction in people. The cat breed that is often claimed to be hypoallergenic is the Siberian, which, interestingly is cousin of the NFC. Well their ancestry could be similar, put it that way.

In this story Dwayne and his wife adopted Kitty a black and white NFC. She strayed from a neighbours house and stayed. And the neighbours don't mind! I find that odd. Clearly the former "owners" were not great cat caretakers. They couldn't be.

Anyway, Kitty and Dwayne are made for each other. Sadly she has Feline Leukemia, which is a killer. She is not an old cat either.

I just liked this story. It is very positive and I am sure Dwayne's life and Kitty's life were improved by their relationship. That is the way it should be.

One last point: it more or less proves that it is not certain cat breeds that are hypoallergenic but certain individual cats. It is all about the specific cat at the end of the day.
