Miss Kitty requested a limerick about Norwegian Forest Cats, so I wrote one for her. Naturally, I used Miss Kitty to illustrate the breed. Norwegian Forest Cats have lots of long, silky fur because they really did come out of the Norwegian forest to live with people. As a general rule, they are very friendly toward people and love company, but the personality of each cat will differ with how they were raised, just as with any other cat. They come in all colors, from pure white to black, with just about any combination in between. The only type of marking they don't have is the points, as seen in Oriental cats. They don't require a lot of brushing, except in spring, when they shed their winter coats. I am working on a limerick for Miss Kitty herself, but this one is about Norwegian Forest Cats in general.
