Breed Characteristics

Although they look wild, the Norwegian Forest Cat is very playful and friendly. They are very curious and love to explore every nook and cranny. As they can climb very well, you’ll often see them leaping onto high bookcases. They are unflappable, react well to change and are good at occupying themselves.

Please note: each cat has its own personality, so this information only provides a rough characterization of the breed.
