10 – The Neck Breaker.

Even from this very first image you can see why an image of a cat simply stretching is worth seeing. The positions and contortions they get themselves into is amazing! You would have thought that this poor cat would have woken with a very stiff neck indeed.

9 – The Long Reach.

From what I have read online it does seem there are some real health benefits to stretching. And the same can be said for cats, helping them grow and keep the muscles they use while playing at peak efficiency. And maybe helping them grow as well, or maybe that is a myth.

8 – Surprise attack style!

This is the full-on cat stretch that involves opening the mouth fully. That arched back and out-stretched arms are a sure way to know your cat is having a very nice stretch indeed. I would like to say that cats stretch more than us humans, but thinking about it, I do it a lot as well.

7 – The Full Frontal

It is the out-stretched feet and fully extended claws that really show you how dangerous even a little cat could be. Those extended claws might not look much to you, but to a mouse or bird I am sure they are deadly gripping tools.

6 – The Booty Call: Back it Up Style

It’s the classic Caterpillar style of stretching. That bum high in the air and fully straight front legs, to be honest, it does look rather painful! But to a cat I would imagine that it makes sure everything is in working order before going out on any hunting spree.

5 – The happy ‘C’ shape

So how long is your cat? Well, a full measurement is from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail which means it can often be difficult to get a cat to assist while measuring. But by being patient and waiting for the cat to stretch you will get the full figures you need.

4 – Each Limb Gets its own Stretch

I read in a blog post that when a cat stretches it will always reach out with its attack paw first. So if this cat is just started to stretch it will be that claw that does most the initial grabbing and clawing. But if I remember right, my old cat just stretched with both claws together, so does that make him Ambidextrous?

3 – Around the box in 80 Stretches

IF you have ever seen a cat climb into a tight looking box you will also see that cat stretch shortly after exiting it as well. Imagine sleeping in a tiny box, I bet you would want to stretch as well.

2 – The Happy Rack

Now this is one very long cat! If you are supposed to measure how long the cat is from the tip of the nose, to tip of tail, how come this cat is longer from leg point, to leg point? Also worth noting is the claws being extended as well. This is one mean cat that is for sure.

1 – The Happy Contortionist

The final image really shows what a cat will go though in order to get a good stretch in. The angle that this cat is in much be painful! But not to a cat, because much like their bigger cat relatives they really are the kings and queens of stretches.

  2. I love watching my cat stretch out in front of the fire, and then because he’s unbelievably lazy if he wants something he’ll drag himself across the floor with his 2 front paws whilst still on his side to see it.
    Its hilarious 😀

  4. Fantastic! Do you have a reblog button? I don’t find it – I’m also a wordpress blogger (BIOSIL) – I would love to re-post especially your cat pics! Thank you 🙂

  5. I gotta go with number 3. I get at least one chuckle a day from a position that one of my two cats seems to achieve; although as they get older (like people), they are not quite as flexible as they used to be. 🙂 Animals are so good for us.

  6. I love love love your blog … I nominated you for Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Thanks for bringing all of us laughter and wonder. I linked you on my recent post, so I hope it brings more people your way, and more facebook likes too 🙂

  7. Having five cats of my own, I’m often amazed at some of the contortions they’re capable of. Thanks for following my blog. I’m so new at this. And thanks to your explanation to someone, I now know what SEO means. HA!

  8. This is such a wonderful post! I had cats all my life since I remember myself and this is exactly how they behave lol. I love watching them. I think they are ALL such beautiful creatures! Di you have a cat?

  9. Yes, even looking that picture up I found 6 or 7 copies before what appeared to be the real source, but I will leave you to decide. On my webfinds blog I obtain all images from a good source and then record the links immediately so that I don’t loose them. Wallpaper sites are the worst, often no credit at all and copies of the pictures everywhere.

  10. Bless them, cats really can stretch in ways that look deeply uncomfortable. I watch my own cats twist themselves into strange shapes all the time, and I always find it comically fascinating.

  11. Not at all. We all have different tastes and likes, that is why I try and cover a good range of things in the blog to try and make everyone smile at least once a week. Come back tomorrow and maybe I can make you smile with something else.

  12. Reblogged this on LifeVV and commented:
    Awwwww. Cutest and funniest thing ever.i love cats (not that I’m a crazy cat lady)(let’s not blow it out of proportion(

  13. I will take a good look at number 7, and yeah I always try and link to the original source when i can, but as you have probably found out yourself it can be almost imposable some times.

  14. A fine collection of cats for a Caturday post, some great stretches from 1-10, hard to pick them in order, although the Happy Contortionist was doing just about every twist and stretch at once! 🙂 If you are stuck for a source on no. 7, you might want to check on Street Warrior by Neven Jurkovic, on photo.net as it appears to be the authentic original, but obviously you will want to be sure. I uploaded a copy to Google image search and the other copies appeared to just be web shares, but most uncredited.

  15. I decided to try my own version of these stretches. I felt a little pain when twisting myself into the form of photo #2, #3 was a bit of a relief, and then #4 – I’m still not able to straighten my back. My cat seems highly amused. She is sitting on the back of the couch right now, purring away, while I write this with my head on my computer table. Thanks, Russell ! (I blame you for my irresponsibility in contorsionism). Another great top-10.
    Later…

  16. It has always surprised and amazed me how cats can bend and twist in so many unusual ways and still be relaxed. I have seen my own cats do some odd poses and hanging over or from the chair, sofa, etc. I miss having a cat!!

  17. #3 was my favorite LOL. I have a stray cat that i feed and it found it cleaning itself the other day and its paw was like straight up in the air but in an odd angle behind its head . I was just staring at it like what in the world… cats are flexible that’s for sure!

    P.s. thanks for the follow and likes on both my blogs!

  18. Cats are wondrous things. They make me smile. I like 3 the best and 1. My cats always amuse me in how they sleep, especially when they sleep cuddled together. Thanks Russell! 🙂
