If any one here is looking for cats, I DEFINALTLY recommend Norwegian Forest Cat! They are so kind, sweet, loving, and BEAUTIFUL! Here is the story of my cat (Rainbow, a NFC): I went to the humane society, and I was looking for a kitten/cat. I saw Rainbow with a litter of kittens, an 6 WEEKS old! I was going to adopt her Wegie (Nickname for them) sister. I ended up coming home with Rainbow (she should have still been nursing, at 6 WEEKS OLD!). She was so shy! I was only 6 when I got her, (and that was in 2006) she hid in her litter box, ALL the time. Everytime I reached in to pet her, she would go after me. After about a week, she would let be pet her. She was the sweetest kitty EVER! She LOVED to cuddle, be pet, LOVED other family members and even loved my dad! (who HATES Cats!). So I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Wegie's!
