The next meeting will be at 7:30 a.m., Sunday, February 29, 2004.  The meeting will be prior to judging at the National Norwegian Forest Cat Breed Club Show in Mercerville, NJ.

Breed Education

Periodically the Breed Council is asked to provide information on the Norwegian Forest Cat to assist those interested in joining the judging program or already an active CFA Judge.  In June 2001, the CFA Judges' Workshop featured presentations on the Norwegian Forest Cat and Maine Coon Cat.
