Beautiful Norwegian Forest Cat but is the muzzle triangular enough?
The TICA breed standard requires that the Norwegian Forest Cat has large, wide-set, almond eyes. The head should fit into an equilateral triangle. You'll have to visualise that. The muzzle should be pleasingly round but fit into the straight lines of a wedge. Hence the term 'Wegi' or 'Wegie' to describe this breed. I have seen this nickname spelled in other ways. I have a slight problem with the beautiful cat on this page in that I think the muzzle is perhaps too big and square. Too much like the muzzle of a Maine Coon. It does not fit neatly into a wedge. My knowledge of the Norwegian Forest Cat is that the distinguishing feature of this cat in comparison to, for example, the Maine Coon is that the muzzle is quite pointed. The muzzle of this beautiful cat is not pointed therefore I don't really think it actually meets the breed standard that well. I'm sure that the breeder would strongly disagree with me.
