Born 8/29/15 in Siberia, Russia, and European Champion at 7 months old, "Ingrid NorWood"
was our first NFC. Since then she has given us 21 beautiful kittens and learned to be a loving lap cat. Freyja is now retired from motherhood and will continue to reign as QUEEN with lovely people in Minneapolis where her royalty is unquestioned.
In spring 2021, "Colette" came to us with a glowing pedigree from Prairie Sky Norwegians in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, riding in an 18 wheeler to cross the border. Foebe is descended from the first NFC pair brought from Norway to the USA in 1979.
"Bastet" came by air from NorWood in Novosibirsk, Siberia, Russia, from the same cattery as Freyja. Felina instantly made herself at home, extending friendship to all.
Kittens are always:

After an unlikely internet contact, the first Norwegian Forest Cats we'd ever seen arrived at our door in June and July of 2018 from the Seven Streams Cymbrogi Cattery in Redding, CA (now in Medford, OR)! We brought home a lovely female kitten in spring 2019 from Forestdolls Cattery in WI. Foebe of Prairie Skies Norwegians, Manitoba, and Felina of Norwood, Siberia, joined us in spring 2021. VikingTails breeding adults have tested negative for feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), and heartworm. None have tested positive for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), and we continue to test. We are a member of The International Cat Association (TICA).
