Norwegian Forest cat

Big and with long luscious fur, the Norwegian Forest cat looks a bit on the savage side. Despite looking like a lynx, this breed is kind and calm. They tend to be quiet and independent, but they still love to play and to be near their family members. These cats are rumored to have boarded viking ships with the purpose of catching mice. Legend has it, Norwegian Forest cats were mountain climbing fairies and were strong enough to carry the Goddess Freya's carriages.
