Hi and welcome to Silver Ridge Cattery – a Norwegian Forest Cat breeder based in Falköping, Sweden. We raise Norwegian Forest cats in a family home environment.

 

Norwegian Forest cats are a large long-haired breed of cat originating from Norway and were believed to be kept by the Vikings on their boats to keep pests under control!

 

This is a ”natural” breed, meaning it developed primarily without human intervention and thus are greatly suited to their native environment with dense water-proof coats and large tufted paws.

 

They are characterized by their lynx-like ear tufts, angular eyes and triangular shaped face, which creates a striking profile!

 

If you’re interested in adding one of these beauties to your home, be sure to do your research! You are welcome to look through our site and get in touch via the contact page.
