EST 1993......


Our Real Novice boy from Norway without any pedigree background
where mother nature created them!!!

Unfortunately Suprelorin didn't work on him and he didn't stop spraying.
So he was bound to a living in the male house, which would not have been fair.
He needs human attention and cuddles like the air to breathe..
So we decided to neuter him, sigh...
But not before we had let him mate with some of our females
to keep his precious blood running in the NFO world!


N*Smyril Norske Smykke
blue & white (a 09)
Born on 20.04.2013

Health certificates:
GSD4 normal
HCM, PKD and CIN normal
on 06-05-2015 at the age of 2 years!
....
Pyruvate kinase deficiency (PK deficiency) free

His immune system is extra ordinairy good! Also his teeth and gums are totally healthy.
A fact that is very important to us, as it is not to be taken for granted these days!
He even is FIP resistant!


DNA (9 different tests each boy) approved non carrier of colours that are not allowed in the Norwegian Forestcat
and Homozygot for the long hair of the norwegian forestcat.
The tests were taken by "Van Haeringen Groep" where they can sort out the different longhair genes for the:
Norwegian Forestcat, Maine Coon and the Ragdoll.
All tests for both boys proved that they are pure breed Norwegian Forestcats!

Fresh blood from Norway without any pedigree background!
With amazingly sweet tempers and the REAL norwegian forestcat coat and look...
I was dreaming about this for sooo many years!!

Here some pictures of our unforgetable journey to Norway - the most beautyful country on Earth. An experiance we'll never forget!!!

Rarely i've seen kittens that adapt to new situations this quickly!!
The two brothers even ate, drank and used the litterbox durig traveling!!!


We tested both via DNA to proof the don't carry colours that are not allowed in the Norwegian forestcat breed.
As we expected the boys don't carry any other colurs! They are the REAL thing!
All people we meat there (even the local vet!) told us that they had too many cats there.
The norwegian forescat had become a kind of a plague there... A real shock for me!

We will take them to the cat show in the determination class, which is still open in independant cat clubs.
Because we can proof that they come from Norway, they will be registered.
They have an absolutely strnorwegian forestcat coat, but they are looking like the oldest NFO standart.
So we are hoping for some judges who where there at the beginning of the breed...

We are planing one single incest litter (fatherX daughter). To see what they carry geneticly. The resultetd kittens will be given to trustworthy people for free. And these people will test them for HCM, PKD and CIN at the age of at least 3,5 years. Non of the kittens from this test litter is allowed for breeding!

Until that, their kittens will get experimental pedigrees for 3 generations, after that we will get real pedigrees.
We are hoping that other breeders wil follow in our footsteps to get more fresh blood!

A big thank you to Petry, Martijn and family! Without you this dream would not have come true!
