Ullrtass's Norwegian Forest Cats



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.

From the very beginning and the moment I saw the Norwegian forest cat I was mesmerized by these big, beautiful and powerful cats with an elusive and wild look. soon after i went to my first cat show my goal became to breed these majestic creatures. how did I know this feeling would encompass my life and become a life-long obsession? and so 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.   for me, making a natural wild looking large cat that looks like it just popped out of the forest and comes to greet you is what excites me and what i hope to make. I don't follow the 'latest trends in breeding but i do keep to the fife standard in sweden,  i go by my eye and my taste as breeding is not only about combining well suited pedigrees, but also about refined taste, a good creative eye and, a bit of luck!. It remains and always will be my love of a wild and rugged looking type Norwegian that are family type pets with a super temperament, excellent health that could go to a cat show (but not only for show), for pure enjoyment. so if you find this appealing, then you might have come to the right place. Also important in my breeding is to keep to the fife standard in a harmonious cat with wide open ears, lovely triangle and good strong chin and profile. Many of our cats are of tabby pattern and now of lately I have begun to breed the color silver which excites me - stay tuned.

Our philosophy of putting our cats first as family members is essential to keep us strong and all thriving. both breeding cats and neuters share the same living space and mingle with each other. our cats live in small groups which keeps them happy and healthy.  both Our fertile males live with other cats and live a very good life as well, as all our cats are family members first and breeding members 2nd.  we have at most two litters per year it gives us time to nurture each baby. every kitten is personally hand raised by us, giving them adequate time, care and the individualized attention they need to grow strong, confident and secure in their social skills with the very social and loving temperament that Norwegian cats are known to have.   

I have been passionately committed to healthy future generations by elimination of potential health problems that can arise in our breed through a consistent testing program and combined mating using less total inbreeding between partners. this program strives 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 it is through this philosophy that we will, with good and consistent work, produce a good result!
