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!

Dooley was very difficult to handle at the vets. Even the vaccination was a problem for him (and the vet) and he needed to be sedated.
We didn;t want to bring this into the breed and decided to neuter him. He was very shy and wild. Afraid of strangers and noise.
He simply belonged to nature... Now he lives at a farm and is free. Some times the farmer sees him hush bye...

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

Tom Dooley and his brother are just as crazy about children as norwegian forestcats are meant to be!

hey are both so enchanting and sweet!
Dooley looked tooo long at us, driving the car ;-)

Smyril takes a closer look ;-)

Cool guy :-)

The first time they meet the rest of the group! We had to wait for the blood results first to see if they are really healthy.
No problems with the other cats, but the dogs are a bit creepy..

The travel with the boys
This was on the noisy boat. We had to stay outside on th edek with them.
Dooley is feeling safe in my arms already...

On the way from the parking space to the boat. Dooley is very curious!

We have to wait for the boat on the parking space.
Because we are too early, we sleep a while in the car
