Freyja’s Cats Bygul & Trjegul

The Norse goddess Freyja has two cats named Bygul and Trjegul who pull her chariot around Asgard home of the Aesir gods and godesses. She enjoys travelling to the other worlds when she isn’t too busy ruling over Folkvangr.

Some Norse farmers still leave food offerings for Bygul and Trjegul, Freyja’s large Norwegian Forest cats in order to attain a bountiful harvest.
