    Ha! I love this and saw your call for pictures. While my hairball cat appears to be quite flexible herself, she isn’t that photogenic (in that I get out the camera and she hauls ass away.)

    Love these 🙂

      I appreciate the short comment – you don’t have to spend a bunch of time thinking about it, but I get the sweet sweet knowledge that someone actually read this and enjoyed it. Perfect.

    Sure, we can call it yoga. The reality is he’s licking his balls. Would that be the “Go Down On Dog” pose?

    I never tire of the look of indignation cats give you when you interrupt their butthole licking. I didn’t realize it was for the betterment of their soul. I’ll be more respectful.

      Dogs get embarrassed, cats don’t CARE. If the dog trips and we laugh at him he get visibly shaken. A cat would flip us off.

    I can always count on you to make me laugh out loud. I saw most of the pics on Twitter, but your commentary was priceless. I, myself, do the “Holyshitwhatthefuckwasthat” pose and “Halt Who Goes There Crane Pose” on the reg. As for human poses, I can hold the “If I Balance on This Toe and Clench My Buttcheeks, I Won’t Slip and Fall Whilst Shaving in the Shower” Pose. Love. Every. Minute.

      Thank you! Hm.. Yoga would be good for showering shaving. I never thought of that… and I might for ONCE get that spot on the inside of my right leg just above my ankle…

    My Great Dane would do the “face plant” on a regular basis. My pointer and Bernese both do downward dog on command. I like them to do their stretches with me in the morning. Works great until one of them decides to try and sit on top of me.

      Martinko says faceplant dog is a “plotter hound” but he is vaguely great danish… maybe the faceplant is in their blood.

    Oh man I’m sorry I missed this. I have some crazy pictures of my cats flying through the air in awkward positions. Actually, I should clarify. They are jumping through the air, not necessarily flying. I would also like to add that they were jumping on their on accord. I just want to make sure people don’t think I was throwing them. I should probably just end this comment now.

    This reminds me of when I worked in the Music/DVD department at Barnes & Noble and we had a copy of “Naked Yoga” and “Naked Palates”. Thank Jobu that I never had to sell it to someone.

      I just tweeted: There should be some sort of warning alarm that goes off before a naked man with his back to you bends over.

      So I can’t even imagine the horror of that book…

    “German Shepherds in particular make excellent trainers, though they can be quite strict.” Funny. Very funny. I bet they have quite the frightening accent too.

    Now I want to drive out to the Humane Society and sign up for yoga classes.

    Awesome – the ferret is my favorite. How exciting! This is my cat’s internet debut – I hope to sponge off her wealth when she eventually becomes famous and makes millions… I will make sure she gives due credit to KFL! =]

    Love these! I wish I had a pic of our cat’s yoga pose…we call it the “Super Pretzel.” The bottom half of her body is facing in one direction, and the top faces the opposite direction. (Already sounds pretzel-y uncomfortable, doesn’t it?) The “Super” part of that is she extends her paws out in front of her, like a flying caped crusader! She can sleep like that for hours. But she’s camera shy…she hates the camera and goes running the second we turn it on. 🙁

      We need the vacuum to scare the dog. I think we took so many photos of him as a puppy now he actually poses for us whenever we whip out the camera.

    This is brilliant. My cat practices yoga only when I’m trying to use the computer or do yoga myself – she plants herself in “affection” pose riiiiigggghhhht in the center of whatever I’m doing.

      That’s definitely in the pet handbook. Every time Mike gets on the floor so I can crack his back Gordon Labradoodle has to be right in the middle of the whole thing…

    In a world so full of serious cynicism (and I always find that word hard to type :-/), to find this site and this zany humour made me giggle till my sides ached. Thank you for putting humour back into blogging.

    If it were within my power (aside: O, excuse me, it is?), so it seems it is within my power, I would therefore be pleased to offer you citizenship as an honorary Brit, to take your place alongside all my Goon Show and Monty Pythonesque heroes! Very well done and, by the way, I just put my back out, trying to clean my… Oh, yes you did issue the health and safety warning! My bad 😐

      Whoo whoo! As an anglophile I am especially honored. And now I get to break for tea at 4 every day – scones and clotted cream for everyone!
