Norwegian Forest Cat
Norwegian Forest Cats typically weigh between 12 to 16 pounds. The Norwegian Forest Cat is a sweet, loving cat. They appreciate praise and loves to interact with their parents. They make a loving companion and bond with their parents once they accept them for their owners. They are territorial and patrol several times each day to make certain that all is fine.
Common Health Conditions
- Hip dysplasia is a genetically inherited malformation of the hip joint that can cause lameness and limping in Norwegian Forest Cats.
- Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a condition where a portion of the heart becomes thickened which causes your cat’s heart less able to pump blood to the rest of the body
- Ticks are blood-sucking parasites that feed on your Norwegian Forest Cat, and once they’ve latched on they are not keen to let go. They will drop off when they’ve finished feeding, but that can take days and are particularly good at hiding in the hair of long-haired cats.
