Norwegian Forest Cats are the breed, which comes originally from nature. That's why they are adapted to living in the natural environment and very cold Scandinavian climate. They have a semi-long, thick, fluffy, double-layered coat. The outer layer with a coarse, longer hair which covers them from rain and underlay which is dense and warmer.
Norwegian Forest Cats are very large but they can move with cats natural grace. Their hind legs are longer than their front legs which helps them to come down from the trees in a specific way with head side down (as for example squirrels).

Other characteristics:

Paws with tufts of fur (we call them "toe feathers") sticking out between their toes for stability when walking on snow or climbing rocky hillsides -- little snow shoes provided by Mother Nature!
Knickerbockers - "Fluffy trousers" - cover by fur back part of hind legs and a long and bushy tail

A fully coated cat has a shirtfront, a full frill. - The head of Norwegian Forest Cat is equilateral triangular in shape with a firm chin. Eyes - large and oval, well-opened, set slightly oblique. All colours of eyes permitted, regardless of coat colour. Usually they have big ears with lynx-like tufts and long hair out of the ears which is cover against freezing. Placed high and open, so that the outer lines of the ear follow the line of the head down to the chin. They have straight profiles without a break in the line (no stop). "The cat is domestic only as far as suits its own ends." Saki (H.H. Munro)

Norwegian Forest Cats love being in nature especially in the forest or in another surrounding where they have an occasion to climb the trees. That's why if the cat has to stay at home is worth giving him an occasion to clime at home (it is possible to buy special cat tree or other similar construction).

Norwegian Forest Cats prefer high-located places at home when they have an occasion to observe and control what's happening at home and nothing can be missed. They are busybodies. Especially if the owner come back from the shop. Cat is intrigued and looks into the bags.

They are very friendly and sociable. They don't like to be alone for a long time and usually they follow the owner all the time. It is possible to teach them to react to their name but usually they come only if they want. Usually they come if they want to play and want to be caressed and touched. They rarely lie on their owner knees but usually they stay very close to them not to lose the occasion to be touched and caressed.
