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 in America's south with a lion cut

Screenshot. Not much to add except that this is the first time I have seen an NFC (Norwegian Forest Cat) with a lion cut. I think they (the cat and owner) live in Southern America which can get damned hot. Lion cuts are useful under those circumstances if you don't want to run the air conditioning all the time or don't have it. Not all Americans living in hot states have air cond. as far as I am aware although as a whole America has by far the largest carbon footprint per capita of all the nations. And air cond. is a major contributor to that unwelcome award. RELATED:  The lion cut: no, it’s not cruel . Is a lion cut a bad thing? Not always. If the cat has to be sedated which carries a small risk a lion cut would seem frivolous. But the NFC's coat is designed for Norway not Texas or Alabama so the lion cut makes sense for this cat breed in those states. In truth the NFC is not really suited to the American south. They are out of place.
