Begin each day with yoga:

Huh. So dogs like the yoga mat, too. And I thought it was just my cats.
Do you have wooden floors? I think one reason Milo likes my yoga mat is that he doesn’t slide around on it!
Zouzou-kitty likes it when I do yoga because she can “help” me, by tickling my nose with her tail when I’m in down dog, keeping my belly warm when I’m in corpse pose, and a host of other kitty-to-yogini interactions!
I do have wood floors, but my cats would have to, I don’t know, move, to slide. They are old and lazy and very cat-like. But I do have a cat like Rubiatonta’s who likes to “help.”
I was on the floor stretching the other day, and our cat was up on the bed, looking down at me with this perplexed expression. She meowed loudly, then got down on the floor and proceeded to buzz and head-butt me. I was laughing almost too hard to continue. I envy her feline flexibility.
Apparently the yoga-kitty/yoga-puppy phenomenon is just about universal. My cat, Haley, particularly enjoys walking under me when I’m doing a balance pose. The kitty nose in the face at right about the time I’ve just zoned out in corpse pose is also popular.
My parents’ former cat used to be interested in exercise, too. This wasn’t really a problem until she sat so close to the exercise bike while Dad was using it that she kept getting smacked in the head by the pedal.
Did she move? She did not. She just got more confused.
Yet she somehow managed to live to be 19, so I suppose the concussions didn’t make that much of a difference to her.
