Breeding Norwegian Forest in Scotland

Breeding Norwegian Forest cats in Scotland, UK

Old Possum has moved back to Scotland to the area where she was born, started school and spent most of her married life. 6 of her 7 children were born in perth. Old Possum have moved into a converted stable yard and coachman's house with a small garden and 7 acres unfenced mostly woodland. The house is on a large estate and is 1 mile from the main road down a private drive - wonderful for the outdoor neuter cats, hens guineau fowl and doves but tricky in the winter if there is much snow. Cat enclosures are all made very professionally by Protectapet and cat chalets with electric lighting and heating. Old possum has cut down on breeding but still plans one or two litters per year. Most of her cats are neuters now enjoying the great outdoors with a cat flap to the kitchen and Aga which they love!

The name "Old Possum's Practical Cats" is taken from T.S.Eliot's book of verses - which includes "McCavity's a Mystery Cat..." on which the now world-famous musical "Cats" is based. I'm told the name doesn't particularly suit Norwegian Forest Cats but in this book are cats of character, courage, beauty, intelligence, ingenuity and adaptability - good friends for life - my "Cats"!
