Does your human do yoga? Mine does, and boy is she terrible! She is not flexible and graceful like I am. I try helping her by rubbing up against her during poses like Downward Facing Dog and Pigeon, but she does not appreciate my help. Which is very dumb of her, since all cats are natural born yogis. And I don’t even have a mat to practice on — I’ve been doing all my poses on the rug and scratchers!
Well, all that changed a few days ago when I got an early birthday gift from my friend Pippy!
It’s my very own Yoga Cat Mat!
Do you kitties know Pippy? If you don’t, you really should meet her! She is a yoga master, which means she is even more experienced at yoga than most kitties! Look above — her Lioncat pose is amazing! Pippy is the head of the Feline Yogi company that makes Yoga Cat Mats like the one I received. She also has a blog, in which she enlightens kitties and humans alike!
Here she is doing no-legged loaf pose on one of her very own yoga mats.
That pose is harder than it looks — as you can see, my form needs work here! I’m glad I have this mat to practice on now! It is also great for scratching on, or relaxing or playing on. There is even a catnip-filled twine ball to help you reach higher planes of consciousness.
It is even fun for kitties who aren’t into the discipline of yoga.
And guess what? Pippy is offering a generous 20% discount on these awesome Yoga Cat Mats at her Etsy shop! Just go to the Feline Yogi Shop and use the code SPARKLE101 to get your discount. This discount is good until July 3, 2013.
Every cat should have his or her own Yoga Cat Mat! They make awesome gifts too!
