Hello and Welcome...

Hi and welcome. We are a family based cattery, located in Täby, Sweden in a suburb that rests near Stockholm We live on the edge of a lake surrounded by nature at the end of the lane. It is quiet and peaceful in the midst of the suburb of Stockholm.  I am originally from the United States and moved to Sweden in 2012 after I met my husband who was visiting America. We can dedicate our lives to raising our cats and living a healthy lifestyle surrounded by our cats.

My journey with Norwegian Forest cats began when I bought my first Norsk skogkatt in Sweden in 2013 after missing a my dearly beloved cat named Apollo who was my faithful companion for over 20 years in the United States. I wanted the same type of cat as he was, which was fluffy, huge, social...kind of like a dog but in cat form...but I wasn't sure what THAT was. Apollo, my very big and wild tom cat looked very much like a Norwegian forest cat and climbed down trees paws first. He lived to be almost 23 years old but I had to say goodbye to him before I left for Sweden as he was very old and couldn't make the trip over because of his age. When I was finally at the place where I could think about another cat coming into my life I fell in love with a Little Norwegian Forest Cat we saw and I had to have her. You understand how that is! This is how my journey began with my love and obsession with Norwegian Forest Cats. We now own ten lovely, wonderful creatures who delight and fascinate me to no end.

From the very beginning and the moment I saw the Norwegian forest cat, my goal was to breed these majestic creatures. I was mesmerized by these big, beautiful and powerful cats with an elusive and wild look. Little did I know this feeling would encompass my life and become a life-long obsession, and so I began the journey for us... breeding them. Our goal has always remained the same, to keep the cat as close to its natural wild and natural look without going to extremes.   Norwegians are known for having a good socialized temperament. This is one of things I love most about being near this breed. This is my passions and what motivates my days. It remains and always will be my love of a wild and rugged looking type Norwegian that are family type pets and not only for show.

Our philosophy of putting our cats first as family members, and 2nd as breeding cats is essential to keep us strong and all thriving. Every cat lives free and happy lives near us inside our home getting a lot of attention. Our fertile males never live outside permanently. They always have rooms inside our home to be near us and we visit them endlessly! As each cat and kitten is personally hand raised by us, it gives them adequate time, care and individualized attention they need to see our babies grow strong in their social skills with the very social and loving temperament that Norwegian cats are known to have.   I am passionately committed to healthy future generations by elimination of potential health problems that can arise in our breed through a consistent testing program to eliminate defects in cats used in our breeding program.  going this way means we tend to have less litters and must go slower in breeding... but we are committed. with good work comes good result!

Being SVERAK certified breeders are considered as a quality assurance.  As a registered breeder I agree to be updated with access and follow new decisions, rules and regulations and to actively work for the cat as a pet, and for good husbandry. After passing the exam, a SVERAK certified breeders have a basic cat and covenant knowledge to share with the cat buyers and prospective cat breeders.  All breeders and members of SVERAK should - besides other laws and regulations - follow the FIFe and SVERAKs statutes and regulations.
