One of the biggest blessings in my life is that Cinco and Manna have been very healthy all of their lives. My angel kitty, Obi-Wan, was not as lucky. He had a chronic illness that set in not long after we adopted him. That is a story for another day, though. Cinco and Manna have always vibrant and playful (thus “Playful Kitty”).

My cats prefer different sorts of exercise. Manna loves to run and pounce. Her energy level is amazing! I wish I could bottle that stuff. Cinco gets in some high energy exercise, but he is much more of a yoga cat. He loves to stretch! Sometimes he finds some very funny places to stretch. There was a time when he tried to stretch by grabbing the waistband of the pants I was wearing and he pulled them right down! Don’t worry, that is not today’s funny picture. Rather, Cinco would like to show you one of his funny cat yoga poses which I call “the invisible scratching post.” I caught him as he was getting into this pose, but he does hold it for a few seconds.

The Invisible Scratching Post - Cinco

Cinco: “And hold that stretch right there. Feel it all through your paw!”

What is your cat’s favorite way to stay fit?
