Welcome to the Home of
Norsk Skogkattring USA
Norsk Skogkattring USA is an invitation only Breeder club dedicated to
the Norwegian Forest Cat here in the United States. We are
dedicated to the preservation, protection and promotion of the Forest
Cat through excellent breeding practices, addressing health issues as
they arise and keeping records of the history of the breed in the United
States as well as Europe. We are pleased to announce our official
affiliation with Norsk
Skogkattring in Norway and firmly believe in an ongoing relationship
between the breeders in the USA and Europe. We are currently in
the process of revising our membership rules so that newer breeders can
apply and be part of our organization. If interested do not
hesitate to get in touch with our
secretary for the application.
Please pardon our dust as we start to mold this website into a great
site for information and what is new in the world of the Norwegian
We are starting to work on a gallery of colors for people to be able to find
their favorite color or for breeders who need help determining a color.
We are looking for cats to volunteer to be a part of that gallery!
We invite people from around the world to share their photos with us. To
have your cat considered for inclusion in this gallery please send .jpg
format photos to
firstname.lastname@example.org Please send the photo in as large a
format as possible so that we are able to fit it into the gallery in the
right proportions and include the name of the cat, registered color,
sire, dam, date of birth and breeder and owner. Thanks for your
Homes Needed for Norwegian Forest Cats
Due to the failing health of one of our breeders we need to place
several Norwegian Forest Cats. They are mostly Reds and Red Tabby
and Whites, Creams and Brown Tabby and Whites. Ages vary although
most are around the 3-5 year range. There are males and females
and all will be neutered or spayed and vaccinated. There is also
one Maine Coon Neuter available.. For
up-to-date information on what is available please contact Vicki at
email@example.com or Sue at
All are located in
Georgia and if they need to be shipped the costs will be the
responsibility of the person adopting the cat. Thanks for your
interest. We will also welcome anyone willing to foster one of
these until a permanent home can be found. Some of these cats are now
falling under the aid of CFA's Breeder Assistance Program and there is a
$100 fee to help defray expenses such as neutering and vaccinations.
Please visit our
adoption page for individual cats.
New Database Officially Launched
We are pleased to announce that after many set backs there is now an
official Pedigree Database that is up and running. Originally
under the direction of this group, the original database purchased did
not work well nor did the company support the program as they should
have so there was not only a lot of downtime but also errors that could
not be fixed. Thanks to the tenacity of one of our Board members,
Greg Watts, he continued to work toward a resolution of this problem and
now has found, purchased and created a functioning pedigree database and
is looking for input into it so he can grown this database from its
current 5,000 plus cats. This is now entirely Greg's baby but we
are happy to provide the link to it as well as encourage all who have a
Forest Cat to participate by providing pedigrees. Here the link to
reach the DB
To contact Greg for more information or questions regarding submission
of pedigrees please email him at
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing
of Penny Garrett. She was a founding member of this organization
as well as a good friend to it over the years. She passed away
doing what she loved best which was being at a cat show. She was
born on March 10, 1943 and passed away on January 22, 2013.
Penny was born in El Dorado, AR to R. N. Garrett and
Agnes Soule Garrett of El Dorado. She was the wife of John Wooldridge;
she was preceded in death by her parents and her husband.
Penny was a graduate of University of Indiana, Music Major and earned
her Master's also in Music at University of AR. She taught Music at ULM
prior to retiring.
Penny was a Cat Judge with The International Cat Association and was
also breeder of Siamese and Oriental cats for the last 25 plus years.
She also bred Norwegian Forest Cats for a few years until her health
prevented her from handling cats of their size and weight. Penny
continued to support the breed since then as well. She was a member of
the Order of DOK and the Alter Guild at St. Patrick's Church. She is
survived by her cousins, Rosamond Banks (David), Carol Felton (Barry)
Cynthia Sample , Carol Bell and Kitty Paulding ,
as well as her care giver/housemate Pat Muise (George).

Online condolences may be sent to the family at
Kilpatrick Funeral Home

Have some nice memories or photos of Penny you would like to share?
I will be building a memorial page and would love to have these
included. Please email to Sue Shaw at
We are also pleased to announce that NSR USA has donated $500 in her
memory for the new Forest Cat HCM study through WINN Foundation.
In July, 2012 we lost one of our founding members.
All that met Jim will remember him as a large Teddy Bear. He had a
great sense of humor and loved the breed. His cattery was
Amberskog. He will be missed.
