Cécile, 46 years old (march 2019) here with Newton d'Hibernia at my friends from cattery d'Hyrrokkin.
Welcome to Hibernia cattery, created in early 2002.

Hibernia in Latin means wintry, which suits quite well to our Skogkatt :-)
Hibernia was also the name given to Ireland, long time ago.
Why Norwegian Forest Cat ? Well ... for his wild look ! He looks like pure energy that comes directly out of fairy tales from Norway (see Skogkatt page). Also for their kindness, their huge sense of adaptability, their natural curiosity, ... I didn't finish the list !
My goals are simple : breed in an intelligent manner ! With in front of all, health and temper, but also type (I like the FIFe standard), I am very keen on the NFC expression, lots of fur, and if the bigger possible. Of course, this is a kind of ideal cat I'm talking about ... there is no perfect cat, there is always a little default, but this gives also an additional charm ;-)

Another important goal is to satisfy the people that trust me when bying one of my kittens. Some have become friends, and this is a very nice experience :-)
Our cats live inside with everybody, no closed doors, and they go out in the garden with me, with a harness or in the run I made for them.
The kittens are also member of the family, for the best socialization possible. I wish for them that they receive the same attention in their new families, with lots of love and carrying.
I don't wish they go out free, the risks are too huge (cars ... and many others ...), so I strongly recommend the harness (they get used to it very well), a big catrun, or a very well protected garden.
Here the pictures of the fence made in the garden !!! and an example of protection for balconies !
Most cats like company, so if you don't yet have another cat or a dog, I strongly recommend you to adopt 2 at a time, or at least to get your new kitten a friend rather soon.
