How much does a Norwegian Forest Cat kitten cost and where can I buy it?
Norwegian forest cats are not the most common domestic cats in Russia, however, there are still catteries that breed cats of this breed. It should be noted right away that if you want to buy a show-class Norwegian forest cat, you should make a reservation in advance in the chosen cattery.
Ideal representatives of this gorgeous breed (show class) cannot be found in poultry markets and at breeders who do not have the right to breed these cats. Moreover, you cannot buy a high-bred Norwegian kitten for 5,000-20,000 rubles.
The price of a pet-class Norwegian forest cat kitten is usually within 10,000-20,000 rubles, a breed-class kitten from 35,000 to 60,000 rubles, for show cats (show class) the price ranges from 60,000 to 90,000 (or more) rubles
In the USA, the price for "medium" kittens ranges from $ 500 to $ 900, for show kittens the price starts from $ 1500; in the UK the average price for a thoroughbred Norwegian kitten is around £ 500- £ 600.
If cost is a decisive factor for a person who wants to buy a Norwegian forest cat, then we can recommend buying a pet-class kitten. In addition, the buyer can receive free consultations on various "cat" issues throughout the life of the pet.
The closer a cat's appearance is to its breed standard, the higher the cost. The cattery / breeder level also affects the value of Norwegians of any quality. It should be understood that the cost of a kitten includes the costs of the breeder for obtaining a litter (payment for veterinarian services, vaccination, sterilization / castration, etc.).
