My name is Christin and I live just outside a small town called Flisa in the eastern part of Norway, together with my two boys born '08 and '13. We've always had cats at home, and I couldn't really imagine a life without them, which resulted in me getting my own cat when I moved on my own.
I discovered the Norwegian Forest cat as a breed in 2004-2005, and got my first in 2007. I found the breeders page online, and when I saw her picture, she got stuck in my heart. That was Orabelle, and she truly was *my* cat, with her special behaviour, understanding and personality. Since then, I have been in love with the breed! Our cats live with us as beloved family members, and have access to all parts of our home. I have both breeding cats and neuters living in our home, together with a couple of host cats in other families.
As I always consider what's best for each cat, I also have had to rehome some of my earlier cats. This doesn't mean they are forgotten, and each of the cats have a special place in my heart. They just wanted and deserved their own family, and even though it's painful for me, I love to see that they are kings and queens on their own, very well taken care of and thriving.
Flisa is situated just two hours with car - or 150 km - from Oslo and Gardermoen International Airport.
