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 .

Cat show judge awards 3rd best cat at show and talks about the Norwegian Forest Cat

This is a nice little video for those who want to get a feel for cat shows and how judges assess Norwegian Forest Cats (NFCs) for awards. He is lecturing visitors to the show who are sitting around the judge's bench where the cats are assessed. The video is from TikToker bengal_lily.

He talks about the size and body shape of the NFC. He mentions that the breed is not cobby like the Persian or Himalayan (pointed Persian) but long in body conformation but not as long as the Maine Coon. He also mentions a major aspect of the NFC's anatomy, the equilateral triangle-shaped head! That comes up a lot and it is one major element which distinguishes the NFC from the Maine Coon which has a heavier and far squarer muzzle.
