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 cats playing in a British garden

What I like about this video is that we see a couple of Norwegian Forest cats living a normal life in a British garden. We are not looking at beautifully photographed Norwegian Forest show cats in a photographic studio. We are seeing them play in day-to-day life. It gives us a different perspective and reminds us that they are, at the end of the day, domestic cats albeit a little bit more glamorous than your average moggy.

These are both tabby cats, one is a ginger-and-white and the other is a grey tabby. I don't know whether they are confined to the garden. The garden does not have a fence around it but a nice high wall which may help to keep them in. Although the ginger tabby climbs to the top of the wall which indicates that he explores outside the garden. This is something that would worry me because they are such handsome cats and therefore more liable to be stolen.

You see the cats in 2005. This is now is 15 years later. I would expect both these cats to have passed over the Rainbow Bridge by now. One person who commented asked the video maker never to remove the video because it reminded her of her long lost beloved cat with whom she spent her childhood. She said that she misses his purr and his fluffy fur and everything else about him, terribly. That comment was written six years ago and I bet she still feels the same way.

As another commenter said, this guy has a really nice back garden so that should help to keep them in it. The major difference between this cat breed and the ever popular Maine Coon concerns their muzzle. The Maine Coon muzzle is much more square and pronounced whereas the Norwegian Forest (NFC) muzzle is far more triangular and pointed. Although you will see differences across individual cats in this regard. Also, the ears of the Maine Coon are larger and the lynx tip hairs are more pronounced than those of the NFC.
