Stretch Styles

Do you have your own stretch style? Cause we do.

Quill Style - I prefer a standing stretch. I like to really stretch out my long back legs. So I have a little lunge move where I move my front out and really lengthen my body. I go sway back for a few minutes, then I kick back each back leg and really streeetch it back. I take my time too. A good stretch can't be rushed.

Greyson Style - I like a standing and lying stretch. I am also a big yawner - gotta get those jaw muscles limber for snack time.

Lying stretch - I go on my side (either side) and really stretch out the tummy but trying to reach back with the front and back halves.

Standing stretch - I am a firm believer in tradition here - I go with the classic Halloween Cat. Where I throw in a little twist is the tail. I either go with an S or C curve.

Friends what is your stretch style?

  1. I like a standing stretch...I usually use a prop...my scratching post and hold the top of it and get a real good stretch!!

    When I stretch out on the floor, I like to scoot around. The mom says I look pretty silly when I do this.

  8. Gosh, we will have to pay more attention to how we stretch and the report back to you. I think we mainly do standing stretches. We sure do need pictures of those stretches. Take care.

  9. Is there anything cuter than a stretching kitty?? Leo, long as he is, tries to reach up high on the wall, which is the only place he can use his full length, then he arches into it with abandon! Star prefers the front half down bottom half up claws extended stretch, preferably while sitting on a reclining human so the claws can really dig in...

  17. Thunder does a Quill style standing stretch, gracefully falls to the ground, rolls and does a Greyson style laying stretch--often trying to touch his tail to the top of his head. Someday, I expect he will.
