CHARAKTER

It is said that the eyes are the mirror of the soul. This is a very accurate statement with complete confidence we can refer them to the Norwegian Forest Cat. Their eyes are alert, eyes wild, not to say even "rogue".

Domestication is not Norwegians deprived of their natural expression of forest predators. Living with us in our homes retain their individuality, independence and consideration for the typical hunter. Although the nature of the forest to adapt well in small apartments in the block and large homes. Scratching posts replace them with trees, they jump and climb on them. a cold sink or bathtub serve as a den. They love a winter fun in the snow. Norwegian Forest Cats are very long youthful retain energy, while the elegance and dignity in her movements. They do not go far from fun, even in a very mature age. They are the cats 'defensive' .- guarding its own territory better than many a dog. Very family, live in harmony with other animals in the house - but they are the proverbial playing first violin. They do not like loneliness.

Although they are big and strong, they move with great grace and ease. Walking along the shelves, or other household appliances, nimbly avoiding any obstacles in their way, no throwing and no breakable. Live react to his name, ignoring the common "here kitty kitty." Norwegian Forest Cats are a big surprise for both the new owner and an experienced breeder. They are constantly surprising us by the complexity of his character and abilities daily. The proud Viking when he wants something enjoy your charm and wraps us around the nail. Cats of this breed are aware of their power and superiority over us. They love us subtly, without imposing on, they patiently gain our feelings.
