      My norwegian forest cat was named Beowulf. He was my hero. We went through many ordeals together....There was never a doubt about how either of us felt about each other....he will be missed.

      Wow! This is really a beautiful cat. My current cat, has suggested that I put thoughts about these cats aside. However, she did enjoy this lens and sends you a friendly Meow.

      I'm owned by a ragdoll cat, but I have seen Wegie cats at cat shows. They are wonderful animals. This is a great lens.
