the Polish cat, Toffi, coming by car all the way from Poland to Fredrikstad to stay with his family.
Toffi was found abandoned in the streets by the family Glugla six years ago.
Now he is a strong and cheerful cat enjoying life so far in the livingroom, because in the garden there are a lot of cats which he must challenge to to have his own territory. I think he can gain respect!
He is always on the run and curious about my Mum's Iphone, so there was a problem taking a good portrait of him.
I think he must have gens of a Norwegian Forest Cat - he has the similar markings as my grand aunt Nøste had.
The Norwegian Forest Cat is a breed of domestic cat native to Northern Eurpe, and adapted to a very cold climate, with top coat of glossy, long, water-shedding hairs, and a woolly undercoat for insulation. Although this is uncertain, the breed's ancestors may have been short-haired cats brought to Norway by the Vikings around 1000 AD, and may also have included the long-haired Siberian and Turkish Angora.
During World War II, the breed became nearly extinct until efforts by the Norwegian Forest Cat Club helped the breed by creating an official breeding program. Currently, the Norwegian Forest Cat is very popular in Norway, Sweden, Iceland and France.
And all cat girls be aware, Mister Charming is soon coming out.... smack!
