The Norwegian Forest Cat is a large but elegant breed with a semi longhair coat. The double-layered coat is heavier during winter, and keeps out both cold and wet. The generous frill and "shitr front" of fur of the neck and chest may be shed during the summer months. The breed is slow developing and may not be mature until four years of age. They have large eyes and may be any colour regardless of the colour of the coat. The ears have tufts and long hair flowing out of the ears. The body is long, muscular and strongly built with solid bone structure. There are tufts of hair between the toes.
