Vet cardiologist has diagnosed Freyja with a heart condition (not HCM) which may compromise her health if she bears more litters. The condition is not hereditary. Further testing will determine how to best care for her.
Three sweet little girls with glowing pedigrees have been purchased from Canada and Russia in order to keep our commitments. They arrived before the end of April. Breeding will start at the turn of 2022. Here are the new family members:

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 Fe 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).
