Cats are the masters of stretching and there are many reasons why this is so.
Our kitties tend to know what’s good for them, stretching is a way of increasing blood flow after all that sleeping and increased blood flow makes you feel good.
They also use it to show that they feel comfortable in their surroundings, when a cat leaves his limbs and tail totally exposed it means he feels very secure near you.
Saying that you have to admit that some of the poses they strike whilst stretching are so hilarious that we can’t resist taking a picture.
A Japanese Twitter user called Mttkmsan did exactly that and after he posted a picture of his neighbor’s kitty stretched out on his back fast asleep, he started a trend and people started posting pictures of their kitties in similar positions.
This is Yamame-kun, his neighbor’s cat, and you can see what all the fuss is about.
This inspired those lovely people at Bored Panda to put together this hilarious collection of cats stretching and boy, there’s some very long kitties out there! Take a look at these 18 pictures and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
