Lunaraine av Else's Legacy NFO

History of the NFO

The first Norwegian Forest Cats (NFC'S) to come to the UK arrived in 1986. Indeed NFC's are still being imported from many different Scandinavian countries, not just Norway. NFC's are now also exported back to Scandinavia as well as to a number of other countries, such as the USA and Australia, Japan,and Greece, to name just a few.
NFC's were first recognised in this country by the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) in 1990, at Preliminary status. It was not until 1997 that the breed finally achieved Championship status with the GCCF.
The cats are judged by type, not colour, even if sub-divided into groups for show purposes. Norwegian Forest Cats are being successfully shown to present day and continue to be loved and treasured by people all over the world. It is important though that through breeding that we do not ever loose their original characteristerics and type. Therefore breeding plans are vitally important for the Norwegian Forest Cat in order to retain that 'wild look' , type and nature that the pioneers put so much hard work into preserving.
