I am a cat. I write.

Cats Like Yoga Too

Cats Like Yoga Too


Exercise is good for you. I know I talk a lot about taking naps. But you need to do more with your life than just take naps. There is more to life than laying in sunbeams. I can’t believe I just said that.

Rest and a good nights sleep are essential for your well-being. But sleeping and eating are not the only essential aspects of a healthy life. Cats need to exercise too.

Cats stretch. And what is the name of one of the famous Yoga Poses? Is it the Dog Pose? Is it the Elephant Pose? The Giraffe Pose?

Yes, this is one of those questions. The kind where I know the answer but I don’t really want you to answer. Yes, a rhetorical question.

Did  you guess Cats Pose? You really know your yoga. I am impressed.

The Cats Pose. A gentle stretch that stretches your spine. And a stretched spine is a good thing.

The pose is not called “The Human Pose.”

When I was in college at The Mouse Hunting School, I took a senior level Yoga Class. I even have my certificate. Perhaps I should get it framed and hang it on the wall.

Mrs. Hodges was stretching this morning. She was not doing it right. Her back was not laying on the mat correctly. She just wouldn’t listen to me. I kept trying to get her attention, but she didn’t do the pose the way I suggested. And who knows better? A cat or a person?

I put my paw on her face and tried to pull it towards me. I wanted eye contact.

Maybe if I show Mrs. Hodges my Yoga certificate she will listen to me?

Do you like to do Yoga? I recommend The Cat’s Pose. 

After all, Cats Like Yoga Too.

You are not doing the pose right Mrs. Hodges.

You are not doing the pose right Mrs. Hodges.

And I also recommend buying your own yoga mat. I would like my own mat, but for now, I will keep laying on Mrs. Hodges arm when she stretches.

If you need any Yoga advice, please don’t hesitate to ask.
