Here more of his ancestors

Pedigree

Our big friend, as Amicus is the latin word for friend ;o)

Because of the frightening development, considering the health and extreme line breeding these days in the NFO scene,
we started to panic a bit. To continue breeding our way, we are forced to keep our familiar lines for our breeding and get some fresh (old) blood. So we don´t run out of breeding cats in a few years.
Some of our breeding queens are getting of age soon...
And i simply refuse to breed with extreme line breed (in my eyes inbreed) cats, or with cats who´s health is in question!

So we also needed a new male... We searched a very long time...
A big thanks to everyone who helped me on this
and to stand all my "no, that´s nothing" or "to much line breeding"...
From Kerstin i got THE link in the end :o)))))))

Amicus´ looks exactly the way i imagine a Norwegian Forestcat has to!
And so do his ancestors! Some of his ancestors fascinated me for years already.
At the bottom of this page i introduce some of them, so you can see what i mean.

We visited Amicus a few times and every time we were fascinated by the whole litter!
Not only are they looking great - also they are very friendly and cuddly
!
And our little friend is just a dream come true...
His irresistible charm and so relaxed and proud.
He´s also very intelligent and he knows exactly which people belong to him ;o)
A very special little fellow!
When i got new pictures of him, the shivers ran down my spine...
This look in his eyes... The eyes are the mirror to the soul...
His whole appearance is simply NFO!!! ;o)
Even though he is still a baby, you can already see that!

Meanwhile he grew up to be a very impressive boy, showing all typical NFO features very clearly!
His expression is perfectly NFO!
His whole appearance is simply a dream come true...
THAT is NFO ;o)
He doesn´t like strangers so much, but i have a veeeery close connection with him... He´s just MY baby ;o))) I can do everything with him and we can have whole conversations ;o) Also he´s extremely social with all my other cats! They like him a lot and he gets spoiled by them all every day ;o)

Thank you soooo much Ina, for trusting your little friend to us!!!!!!!!!!
