Fur for all seasons

As you may know I was a stray until I made my furrever home with my SS's mother some 9 years ago. Therefore, I did not really know what breed I was. During my recent illness SS asked the vet in passing and he thought I was a Norwegian Forest Cat. I like that - sounds a lot more exotic than a long hair domestic. Of course, the chance of me visiting Norway is just about nil.

I look different in summer with shorter fur than in winter/spring. I have included some photos here for comparison. SS can testify to the fact that there has been no significant weight difference between the winter and summer months. In any case, I am a light weight at 7.5lbs. Therefore, please call my floofy and not fat!


Another lovely Norwegian Forest Cat in the CB is Miss Kitty.


Don't you think we look just a little bit alike?

A little bit. Whatever you call yourself, you are a gorgeous cat!

Karen Jo said...

Norwegian Forest Cat sounds much more dignified than long-haired domestic. It suits you very well.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

You are so lovely, no matter what the breed!

You do look a bit alike, but of course much better :) Although Miss Kitty is also a very beautiful cat!

Daisy said...

I'll bet you are a fancy Norwegian Forest Cat! And it does sound so exotic, too.

Alasandra said...

Yes, we think you look alike.

You are very pretty MoMo. ~Scylla & Charybdis

My darling you are a gorgeous cat. It's very smart to have more fur when it is cold. ~Socks

It doesn't matter so much what breed you are, Momo. You are a lovely girl with a big heart.

Miss Kitty, NFC said...

Oh yes, we DO look very much alike! Thank you, Momo, for showing me our similarities.

Do you also throw up lots of hairballs this time of year when your fur is falling out? Even with brushing, I sometimes do that.

What beautiful photos of you. I do like the sound of Norwegian Forest Cat. Sounds so elegant, just like you.

PURRRRRTY! we (Grr, Midnight & Cocoa) are part Norweigan Forest Cat too.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

We (Grr, Midnight & Cocoa) were told by a breeder of Norwegian Forest Cats that it appeared that we were NFCs, though not purebred of course. We're all littermates and we know where our family is - it's a feral cat colony about a half mile from here. There's a nice lady who feeds them all and takes care of them. They're solid black, gray and gray stripy and are all very fluffy. There's one that looks just like Cocoa. We never get to see them, but the Lady sees them lots, though she can't pet them. They're afraid.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Rascal & Riley are adopted and aren't related to us at all. Plus they annoy me.

Now Grr, that's not nice. They're our brother and sister now and you've gotta start accepting that.

Now I know two Norwegian Forest Cats! You are both beautiful cats!

TT said...
