Norwegian Forest Cats 



A priori, given its rustic nature, the Norwegian would not need any grooming. But it is a half-long haired cat, with a very abundant woolly undercoat. He undergoes some pretty impressive moults, and to do nothing would be quite disastrous. The weak points of Norwegian during moulting are the armpits, back and inner thighs, flanks, ruff and back base of the ears.


This is where the knots form when the dead hair falls off and it is therefore these parts that must be watched closely, all year round and particularly from January / February. It is enough to stroke the cat to realize that a knot is forming. Before it gets too tight, you can gently undo it with your fingers.


After that it's too late and you have to cut! It is therefore in your best interest to monitor the condition of your Norwegian's fur regularly. Watching doesn't mean brushing and combing vigorously every day. You might needlessly take away an essential adornment: its thick undercoat. No, on the contrary, brush your cat gently, especially without pulling if you feel resistance.


Hardly touch the tail because the tail hairs that hardly shed (these are the only long hairs that remain in summer) take a long time to grow back and a Norwegian without its beautiful plume is less majestic.


The Norwegian is no more prone to disease than any other cat. Care should be taken to ensure a balanced diet of very good quality, especially during its growth. It develops slowly and does not reach physical maturity until around the age of three / four years.
