Origin of the breed

It is likely that the ancestors of these cats were Southern European short-haired cats that migrated to Norway in prehistoric times. They developed through natural selection, as only those cats which were able to adapt to the harsh Norwegian winters would have survived. It is claimed that the ancestors of this cat were the household pets of the Norwegian Vikings, who took their cats with them on their ships. They are believed to have gravitated towards farms where they were prized for their ability to control the rodent population.
