Cat yoga

Barney in the garden
I think my cat is a Buddhist. He certainly practises yoga, out in the sunshine with my lawn for a mat. His stretches and postures performed with infinite slowness, from downward facing dog, to bridge, to happy baby and, ultimately, contented cat. His patient calmness the product of endless meditation. His expression is inscrutable as he plans his passive aggressive takeover of my sofa.

Cats are ace to watch - always relaxes me :)

Mine also loves to take part when I'm trying to do yoga - the downward dog is his favourite, although it's tricky to stay in the pose when he's purring and rubbing his head against mine!! :D
