favorite kitty position?

I think mine is when they sit on their haunches and lick their bellies, with the forearms bent. They look like little furry Buddhas.

My favourite is when Io does the "long cat" position, but her tail sticks out perpendicular to it.

She moved by the time I snapped this pic, but it's close;

Oooh, I love it when they tuck their front paws underneath their bodies like this:

Those pics are adorable.

Io just has a spectacular tail. I can't believe she can make it so straight. My girls' always look floppy, even when they're stretched out like that.

I always wonder if certain positions correspond to certain moods. When they wrap their tails around themselves, I always think they're cold.

Definitely the crossed paws






little Cali




And I just snapped this on my phone the other night (sorry for the quality), but I think it's the first time I've ever seen Cleo do the crossed paws.

My favoirite is the "sit pretty". Where they sit and have their tail wrap around their front paws I don't have a picture of Joy doing that yet... But here is one of her and the crossed paws!


I also love it when she sleep in a furball She seems to try and take up as least space around her and makes herself into a small sleeping ball of fur with her tail wrapped around herself! Here she is doing just that:

All those pictures are absolutely adorable Thanks for sharing.

Personally I like when my cats are all cuddled up together forming a big ball of fluff and fur!
