The Norwegian Forest Cat is known, also known as Norsk Skogkatt, Wegie, for having a charming personality to go with their stunning looks. They have been around for hundreds of years and have always been highly prized in their native Norway, as they are a hardy natural breed that can survive harsh climates and cold temperatures. They are large cats that take a long time to grow out, which means they remain very kittenish for a number of years. The Wegie, as they are affectionately known, has gained a large following not only in their native country, but also in many other countries thanks to their stunning looks and friendly, gentle nature.
