Cats are normally pretty compact – they’re usually curled up on a couch cushion or coiled up, ready to spring at a pair of passing ankles. Sometimes, however, they can display their maximum length. This cat is catching some rays and getting some Zs at the same time, stretched out on a deck railing.
Even smaller cats have a lot more length to them than people might realize, what with a long, stretchy spine and long back legs. There’s a reason that long cats have become so popular – they’re really fun to look at.
The Family Power Dynamic
In every household, there is a dynamic. Mothers and fathers at the top, then kids, then it's pets. Usually, anyway. Once you get down into the pets area, things start to get really murky. Maybe there's a big dog that will rule the floor, or maybe a young kitten will dominate everything it wants, like in this picture.
The little cat wants to take a nap on the dog's nice, big, fluffy bed? Well, some dogs aren't going to have it in them to complain. They might not even notice something is being taken from them. This dog looks like it knows, however.
Just Trying to Fit In
Tetris isn't a very hard game to pick up and play, even if the experts are wildly good at it. Look, even cats know how to play. It looks like this feline gamer has over-rotated the T piece, however, and gotten stuck in a place that will require a little extra work to clear out.
The cat's face looks quite pleased with itself, for some reason – maybe it finally got a knot out of its back, and this was the only way to do it. As long as you don't get stuck and start crying to us.
Still From the Next “Alien” Movie
Cats are like putty. They can stretch and twist into almost any shape that they want, and this picture is a great way to demonstrate it. If not for the eyes and ears on the head, most people would have a lot of trouble figuring out which end is which, and which limb is which. Even with the head, it's not so easy.
At first glance, we thought that the back legs and tail were the two front legs. This twisty little creature is having a nice long stretch, and also it's in the bathtub for some reason. Not a place cats usually like to hang out.
It's Like It WANTS to Cause Trouble
Ah, yes. A delicious cake that is meant for human mouths and not cat hindquarters. But what if the company cat, Allie, wants to sit on it, even though we want to eat it? Simple – we'll put it where Allie could never get to it and hang a sign on the snack dispenser to drive the point home.
Allie was determined to sit on that cake, no matter where it was and what kind of signage was added. Some cats are peculiar, just like humans, and maybe this cat just has a jonesing for sitting on store-bought birthday cakes. There have been weirder cats.
