There are lovely tales of the acquisition and registration of many of the most famous early cats - for example, Timotei, who was rescued from under a tractor in the fields of a Norwegian farm and was so oily and greasy that he had to be thoroughly washed in a certain brand of shampoo. There is little doubt that "real", albeit unregistered Forest Cats still live on farms all over Norway.
The Norwegian Forest Cat Club is affiliated to the GCCF (Governing Council of the Cat Fancy) , which is the largest cat registration body in the UK. There are two other important registering bodies of the cat fancy in Britain: Felis Britannica, affiliated to the Fédération Internationale Féline, and TICA (The International Cat Association). All three have a similar Standard of Points for the Norwegian Forest Cat.
