Norwegian Forest Cat

#6 Norwegian Forest Cat

This breed can grow to be up to about fifteen or sixteen pounds and is also adapted to a harsh, winter climate. Norwegians are similar to Maine Coons in the sense that they have long legs, a fluffy tail, and a strong and sturdy body. They are exceptionally good at climbing thanks to their industrial-strength claws. Their almond eyes softens their appearance and they have ears that are large and wide at the base. All coat colorings are accepted for this breed and they are very heavy-boned. Though in most breeds the male is larger than the female, Norwegians are most notable for this because they are significantly larger than their female counterparts. A female will generally only weigh about ten pounds which is about average size for a domestic cat.
