The highest achievement in the CFA show ring is accomplished when a cat successfully earns the title of National Winner (NW). CFA established the title of Grand Champion in 1930 and the title of National Winner first appeared in 1971. In CFA, each year the top 25 cats in Championship, 25 Kittens and 25 cats in Premiership are awarded the NW title.

The Norwegian Forest Cat is fairly new to the United States, and the first pair was imported in 1979. The breed was first accepted by CFA in 1993.

It wasn't until the 1998-99 show season that the Norwegian Forest Cats had their first National Winner - a brown tabby & white male named GC NW Norsestar's Loki. To date, no Norwegian Forest Cat has earned a "Best" in any of the categories - the highest placing Norwegian was in the 2002-03 show season, when GC, NW Irlu Glendalough Roison of Redzone, a brown patched tabby & white female, was CFA's 2nd Best Kitten.

Below is a table with the national winning Norwegian Forest Cats including their name, color, sex, year of their win, and the award they earned.

If the cat's name is in blue text, you can click on it to see a photo of the cat. Championship cats names are on an orange background, kittens are on pink and alters are on a blue background.
