The NORWEGIAN FOREST CAT has a beautiful, thick, luxurious, water-proof double layered coat. They are fluffy from tip to toe with tufts of hair around the ears and in between their toes. Their tail is bushy like a huge brush. They use it to wrap around them when they sleep to prevent getting cold from the weather. It is said that these long haired cats explored the world with the Vikings, working as mousers for the grain stores.
