Rare Cat Breeds
I was browsing the internet and for some odd reason the Norwegian Forest Cat caught my interest, so I thought this would be an interesting article for my readers who are interested in rare cat breeds. You might be surprised to find the list is longer than you might expect, so are you ready to learn about this unique pet?
Scandinavian region is where they originated from, which is located in the northern part of Europe. I thought this would be a wild cat roaming its homeland, but surprising to me this is a domestic pet.
The fur is extremely thick and long which effectively insulates them from the cold which grows in layers, so anyone who hunts or spends any amount of time outdoors during cold weather understands how important layers are to keep you warm. If you are fond of large cats, this breed will interest you, but what most people notice the most is their long furry bodies and bushy tails.
Norwegian Forest Cat Size
This breed as I shared earlier in this article is a very large animal, so compared to the majority of other domestic house cats. You could compare their size to a small dog similar to the size of a pug, but the kittens are very playful which makes them a good pet for kids.
- Kidney Disease
- Heart Disease
- Glycogen Branching Enzyme
- Joint Problems
- Hip Dysplasia
Despite these health issues which are common in the Norwegian Forest Cat the average lifespan is a surprising fifteen years, so if this breed appeals to you they can provide you many years of companionship.
You can expect to pay between $500.00 to $900.00 from a reputable breeder, but for someone who has fallen in love with them the price is worth the investment.
