Of Wegie and Coon-cat

It’s all about cats now as I really wanting to owned one (hopefully). In my previous post, i did mention about Norwegian Forest Cat and Maine Coon right? For those who knew about those breed, must be a cat lover i supposed. This kind of breeds are rarely seen or found in Malaysia.  The Norwegian Forest Cat is breed of domestic cat native to Nothern Europe and adapted to very cold climate. In Norway, they are known as skogkatter. Norwegian Forest Cats have a thick fluffy double-layered coat, tufted ears and a long bushy tail to protect them against the cold. Their coat is essentially waterproof due to its coarse outer layer and dense underlay. They are very large cats with adult males weighing 6 to 10 kg (13 to 22 lb), while females are approximately half that size. Their hind legs are longer than their front legs. They are very intelligent, playful cats that enjoy human company. The nickname of “Wegie” began in the United States. It’s actually a shorten version of the word Norwegian. Like Maine Coons, Norwegian Forest Cats are an intelligent, robust and playful breed. They like the outdoors, are well suited to cold conditions and are great hunters. Despite their great affection for the outdoors, they also enjoy the company of humans and other pets and will sometimes go looking for company if left alone by their owners. They are not easily stressed and are quite patient, which makes them great for a family with children. Here are some pictures of Wegie…

The Maine Coon cat is is one of the largest breeds of domestic cat, known for its high intelligence and playfulness as well as its distinctive physical appearance. The breed is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America specifically native to the state of Maine (where it is the official State Cat). This cat is known as “Maine Coon”, “coon-cat”, “Maine Cat” or (colloquially) “the gentle giant”.Maine Coons are a breed distinguished by high intelligence, dexterity, and playfulness. They have a tendency to use their front paws extensively (often curling the paw round to pick objects up) and as a consequence will easily learn to open cabinet doors, turn on water faucets, flush toilets, or pick up small objects. Some Maine Coons will eat, or even drink, from their paws, rather than from the bowl itself.

Due to their above-average intelligence, Maine Coons are known to be one of the easiest cat breeds to train. Maine Coons are noted for their ability to trill their meows, which sounds like a combination of a purr and a meow, and they tend to make this sound when happy or startled. When they do meow, it tends to be very high in pitch, in comparison to other breeds. They are noted for rarely eating alone, preferring to eat in the company of other cats or humans. Maine Coons are not known to be “lap cats” but of course, this may depend on the individual cat and some may prefer laps. So officially, Maine coon and Norwegian Forest cat are highly intelligent and playfull and super kawaii too! And here are some pictures of Maine Coon breed…

Aren’t they cute? Both Wegie and Coon-cat look almost the same. Only Coon-cat can grow bigger than Wegie. That’s why I like it both! They’re just super kawaii! I can’t wait to owned one of it and I really don’t mind having both of them(hopefully). Well, let’s wait and see.

    tak pon korang bela la stray cat mcm kitorang sekarang, pagi n mlm dia mesti dtg mintak mkn..tapi bagi kat luar rumah je..hehehe..
