The Norwegian Forest Cat is a breed steeped in myth and fairy tale. They are an old breed, unsurprisingly with their origins in Scandinavia. It is thought the Norwegian Forest Cat arose from a mix of the short haired cats that arrived with the vikings and the local, long haired cats suited to the harsh, cold climate! It took some time for these felines to spread across the world, but they are now loved across the globe.
