Norwegians need space

A lot of Space

Even cats noticed that

When you think about it Norwegians are a little like wild cats

What happens if you try to come close to a wild cat

Try to pet the cat

Or give it food?

It will run straight back to the woods

Same with Norwegians!

You need to play a game

For a few weeks

or a few months

I called this frame activity

Leave space

Leave an exit door

An opportunity to escape

Then Norwegians

Just like wild cats

Will come closer

Sit down

and accept to eat food with you

Welcome to Norway

You may need a guide

Norwegians themselves may also need a guide

To understand better how they may be perceived by outsiders
