Hi there, I've been interested in Norwegian Forest cats for a long time and this year, because my moggy died, I decided I'd like to get one. In the end I contacted the RSPCA and got 2 NFCs through them, 2 brothers. I've literally fallen in love with the breed and I've been doing a lot of research on the internet about breeding, thinking that may be something I'd like to get into. I've seen some breeders from Sweden online who have some stunning cats and was thinking of importing a Queen from there in a year or so, when my boys are a bit bigger. They're not registered due to being rescue kittens so I'm getting them both neutered. From the looks of it getting into breeding is a scary prospect, it just looks complicated and a bit daunting as I don't want to tread on anyone's toes. I was going to join the Norwegian Forest Cat Club and have printed off an application which is ready to be sent away. I sent an email to the chair of the club saying I was planning to send an application and she said she 'looks forward to seeing my application which will be placed before the committee'. I'm just worried they're going to turn me down from joining, does this happen very often? Are there any special requirements for joining such a club? I am completely dedicaated to the cause of furthering the beautiful characteristics of the NFO and I think this year has started a wonderful relationship between me and the breed. I'm at work at the moment, but I'll upload some photos of my boys when I'm on my laptop Sorry for the long post, I hope you'll be able to give me some guidance, I feel a bit lost and have the feeling of trepidation at the moment.
