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 .

When do Norwegian Forest Cats shed?

Norwegian Forest Cats shed fur at the same time as any other domestic cat. Some people believe that changes in seasonal temperatures dictate when a cat sheds fur but actually the shedding is influenced by changes in ambient light. A domestic cat sheds more when there is more natural light. It doesn't matter whether the cat is spayed, neutered or fully intact.

Therefore, if a Norwegian Forest Cat is allowed outside, which might be unusual because they are such beautiful cats, the longer days of sunlight in late spring activates the shedding process. It can last for about six weeks. If a cat is allowed outside part of the day then the shedding process might begin at the beginning of summer.

In the autumn, as the days grow shorter and there is less ambient light, the coat thickens for the coming winter. There is little or no shedding. For indoor cats exposed to both artificial and natural light at a fairly constant level continuously shedding may occur to a lower level all year round. This is because the light level is fairly constant no matter what the season.

These guidelines apply to any domestic including the Norwegian Forest Cat.
