My name is Les Wheeler and I live in, Worcestershire. I am a small hobby breeder, breeding
from old Scandinavian lines, and have had Norwegian Forest Cats for
14 years. In the beginning, my wife Maggie and I started breeding
with my daughter, Felicity, under her prefix, SNOKRYSTAL.
In 2003 we got our own prefix, FENRISULVEN, and started breeding in
our own right, as Felicity’s education took a more important role
and breeding had to take a back seat with her.
In 2007 Maggie became seriously ill, and our breeding programme was
put on hold for a long while. Sadly she died in 2008, but now I try
to carry on the work we started together, and hopefully I am
managing to achieve what we set out to do for this wonderful,
It all started when we used to show
household pets and I saw a NFC at a show for the first
time, and fell in love with them. I had my first one in
1996, Macavity, a huge brown tabby & white boy, who I
showed as a neuter. From then we were hooked, and
Felicity had her first girl, Volsung Odette a year
later. That was the start of our breeding programme.

Maggie Then had her beloved Romulus,
a large black smoke & white boy, who became a very
successful show cat. He went on to become our stud,
fathering some very beautiful big cats, but sadly he
died at the young age of five. By keeping the old lines
we liked, and working with them, we have tried to
improve the breed over the years, especially when we
introduced Drakborgens Miss Quickfix (affectionately
known as Missy) from Sweden.

Our proudest achievement was when we
exported Snokrystal Bathsheba to Sweden. She went on to
reach the highest accolade and become a European
Champion with a Distinguished Merit.
My aim now is to breed healthy NFC’s that are big and
strong, with a wonderful temperament, and carry on the
work which Maggie and I started together.
