Yoga with Cats

Need some exercise? No time to do any? The Cat's Whiskers has the solution. All you need is a bed and a cat.

Great post, Fairy!

Oh, good morning, by the way.

If only this worked as easily as it reads. When it's my turn for Firestar to sleep at my side, I generally sleep tense, doing everything I can to avoid rolling onto him. He's oblivious and will sleep for hours while I lay awake wishing he would move.

When I am unaware of his presence, I sleep normal - which means thrashing about. (Which is why we do have a king-sized bed. Spouse takes the blankets [sigh] and I get the space.) More than once he has had a leg, foot, arm or hand disturb his slumber. If I do it too much he leaves.

But every once in a while it works nice. That's usually when he chooses to sleep near my head. He will purr before he drifts off, and the sound becomes a soothing music.

You find the neatest things!

Have a good day.

Any doggie sites?

BBJD Ah, you must be doing it wrong. When I do cat yoga, Bonnie comes and sits on my chest and purrs. She also scrabbles the covers with her claws. You can guess how wonderful that is at five o'clock in the morning.

Jane I don't stumble dog sites; my cats won't let me. Sorry.

Haha, love cat yoga. I often do it without even realizing natural! :D

"Ah, you must be doing it wrong.

Probably. But I don't get it as bad as Spouse. Firestar waits until Spouse lays down at the edge of the bed. Then he sneaks up, cheap shots Spouse in the face and high tails it out of the room with Spouse in futile pursuit.

I had forgotten about your Bonnie. She hasn't visited Firestar yet. Is she the quiet one? (If such a thing exists.)

Hi jessi! I think all cat owners do it sometimes.

BBJD Yes, Bonnie is the quiet one. She's quite timid and gets bullied by Rufus.

My cat used to back-comb my hair whilst I was sleeping.

That's so funny, scarlet-blue, a cat hairdresser!
