Guardian - longhaired, norwegian forest cat, gryish, tough
Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
The Norwegian Forest Cat comes from natural selection to survive Norway's cold weather.[1][2] Its ancestors may include black and white shorthair cats brought to Norway from Great Britain sometime after 1000 AD by the Vikings and longhaired cats brought to Norway by Crusaders. These cats would reproduce with farm and feral stock and would eventually evolve into the modern-day Norwegian Forest Cat.[3][4][5] The Siberian and the Turkish Angora, longhaired cats from Russia and Turkey, respectively, are also possible ancestors of the breed.[3] Norse legends refer to the Skogkatt as a "mountain-dwelling fairy cat with an ability to climb sheer rock faces that other cats could not manage."[6] Since the Norwegian Forest Cat is the most adept climber,[7] author Claire Bessant believes that the Skogkatt could be about the Norwegian Forest Cat.[6]
