major registries such as ACFA, CFA, CFF and TICA and have produced a
litter of kittens within the last two years

Novice Breeder Membership:

Breeders who for various reasons have taken a break from
breeding and not produced a litter in the past two years. They

This division is comprised of those who have a Norwegian
Forest Cat, want a Norwegian Forest Cat or want to be involved in the
Norwegian Forest Cat Community. They can serve as officers
or volunteer positions such as our website and newsletter.
Their support helps us to be able to donate money where needed to health
studies effecting the Norwegian Forest Cat or cats in general and
contribute toward our emergency fund. They are an important part
of our community and we are pleased to have added this division this
year. Membership is by application and approval is by the Board of
Membership Dues: $10 a year
In the past our membership was by invitation only and it
was a Breeders only
organization. Members had to sponsor you. Now the only
sponsorship is a letter of recommendation from any breeder or your
veterinarian. We are looking for members
who believe in good breeding practices and good business ethics and have
the interest of the breed at heart. Our organization is made up of
Active Breeders, Inactive Breeders and Retired Breeders. Many of
our members have been breeding for over 20 years and with our new
membership division of Supporting Members we feel that we will become
the well-rounded organization we should be.
And Introducing our Newest Division:
There are two types of International Members:
Dues Paying: $20.00 a
Reporter Status: one per country To earn this status the member must be
willing to submit a monthly show report/breed report to be republished
in our online Saga Newsletter
