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 .

Norwegian Forest Cat Dressed for Norwegian Weather

This must be a photograph of a Norwegian Forest cat in Norway - in Norwegian weather wearing a thick and shaggy coat which is so perfect to keep her warm.

The pictures of Norwegian Forest cats that we see on the Internet and which have been bred perhaps in America are quite refined looking. Their coats are well prepared and groomed by their owners. The ruff under their chin is often coiffed beautifully in preparation for cat shows but here we have a shaggy original under the falling snow looking as content as she could be. 

The coat is amazing in its shagginess and density. There is no way that this cat is going to be cold even if it is Norway where temperatures reach -30°C or whatever else they are. I'm not too familiar with the temperatures in Norway but they will be bloody cold except for the Norwegian Forest cat such as the one illustrating this page.

You can tell the difference between the Norwegian Forest cat and the slightly better known Maine Coon by the shape of their muzzle. You can see in this cat a slightly narrow and triangular muzzle compared to the much more squared-off muzzle of the Maine Coon cat.
