Cat Breed Description

Norwegian Forest Cats, commonly known as "Wegies" (WEE-jees) have almond-shaped eyes and sweet expressions. Norwegian Forest Cat kittens are found in most colors and patterns, although most commonly in tabby patterns with white.

The Norwegian Forest Cat personality is loving, affectionate, though not overly demonstrative. They can seem a little stand-offish to strangers, but quickly warm up to family and friends. They can mimic other breeds, whether or not they are successful; Norwegian Forest Cats raised with more active breeds may attempt more acrobatics or be more playful than those raised with more docile ones. Wegies require regular grooming to maintain their coats, as their full undercoats will mat with inattention.

Notes: This baby and his best friend (Grisu below) are the most wonderful cats in the world!!! They must go together though, because they would be lost without each other. Both have health problems. Camillo has herpes and permanent kidney failure, though both are currently in remission and are doing okay. Camillo requires biannual bloodwork and prescription food and one medicine daily, the companionship of his buddy Grisu, and an understanding new family.

Texas

Photo Cat's registered name: Ouijakatz Dimitri
Cat's call name: Dimitri
Breed: Norwegian Forest Cat
Color: Brown classic tabby with white
Date of Birth (mm/dd/yy): 05/15/2012
Sex: Male; neutered
Pet or show quality? Show
Registered with: CFA and TICA
Cat's location: North Houston, Texas
Home preferences: 1 or 2 other cats OK; no dogs.
Notes: Dimitri was one of my stud males. I had him neutered last August. He was a bit standoffish while whole. But, now as time has gone by, I notice that he comes around more and craves more attention from me. He will take a bit of time to totally socialize him and get used to a new home, but I can see that he is craving more attention then I can give him in a cattery situation. He is totally a gorgeous boy.
