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 .

Cute tuxedo Norwegian Forest cat squeaks in scent-soaker bed

The owner of this Norwegian Forest cat (NFC) tells us that it is rare for this individual cat to squeak. Let's just say it's another form of vocalisation of a domestic cat and it is certainly very cute.The NFC comes in a very wide range of coat types under the breed standard. Perhaps the best coat type for this breed is the tabby-and-white because it has a natural look about it. Or a full tabby NFC looks great too. But here we have a black-and-white NFC (tuxedo in fact) and I think she's female. The owner and video maker implies that NFCs are very quiet. And therefore the squeak or any form of vocalisation is rare. I'm not sure she is correct. Correction: she is correct! NFCs are said to be "usually very quiet, so it may be difficult to know when the female is in season". This quote comes from Gloria Stephens in her book "Legacy of the Cat".

Perhaps a more interesting aspect of this video is how this sweet cat is provoked into kneading the duvet because the bed has a very strong smell of her human companion. In Jackson Galaxy language it is a "scent-soaker". The bed is soaked in the body odour of the person sleeping in it and that is very pleasant for a domestic cat. That's what they want to be around, to sleep in and on. It is reassuring to them. They need that reassurance. And the little squeak that this cat makes when she arrives is another sign or signal that she is happy to be there. She's greeting her human companion and at the same time saying "I'm happy to be here"; because she is surrounded by that beautiful body odour!
