AN EVENING WITH MRS. ELSE NYLUND OF PAN'S CATTERY
During the Scandinavian Winner Show 2004 in Oslo, Susanne Bjørkerydh [(N) Chrissus] and Laila Sunde Jansen [(N) Mestro's] introduced us to Else Nylund, the breeder of the historical Pan's Cattery. She kindly invited us to his home to give us an unforgottable evening.
Mrs Else Nylund, thank you so much for letting us spend a magical afternoon with you an your cats..
Else, with her husband Egil raised among many other cats, Pan's Polaris and Pan's Truls. In 1977 on Truls was established the FIFe standard of Norwegian Forest Cats. Trul's lies beneath the flowers in the garden of Else's house.
You can find Pan's Polaris in most current pedigree Norwegian Forest.
Thanks also to Camilla Westh (WesthKIowas cattery) for her help and patient work as interpreter.
