Vanir takes particular pride in in showing some of my wonderful cats who are neutered/spayed. Since they have been neutered/spayed and as in any "fixed"cat, their coat and condition are not dependent upon hormonal levels. I include them for you to see what a neutered/spayed Norwegian Forest Cat can look like.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me; either by phone or via e mail address. VanirCats@aol.com,

Sire: CH Sweesons Balder of VanirDam: GC, RW Vanir Temperance BrennanDate Of Birth: August 10, 2008Color: Blue Classic Tabby and WhiteOwner: Kent Taylor Cat Profile: Ullr is named for the Norse god of Winter. His blue (the winter sky) and white (the snow on the ground) colors, and his travel to his new home during a lull in two blizzards made his name very appropriate. Ullr found his forever home at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and shares it with his mentor, Taz, a 14 year old Maine Coon, his playmate, Thunder, a 3 year old Norwegian Forest Cat, and his best friend, Saber, a 145 pound German Shepherd. Ullr is a special, very loving example of the breed. He is always in the same room, lying at your feet, cuddling on the couch, or giving head bumps and cat kisses while snuggling on your chest. How many cats purr while clipping their claws prior to a show or brushing their teeth? He has touched many during his show career, twice being voted a "Fan Favorite" by the spectators and vistors at the show. Be sure and take care of Daddy Kent for Old MomCheryl.
