Downward Dog and a Cat

What do you think of this???

I practise yoga three mornings a week at a nearby club and the venue is next to the club pool.

As the place is surrounded by plants and a pool, we have some visitors on and off, mostly mosquitoes, flies, a lizard a.k.a gecko (once), a frog (once), and some children onlookers.

Last Friday morning was cloudy and we all knew that it was going to rain HEAVILY which it was;
a little stray kitty visited us right before the class started. 
He looked lost, scared, hungry and tiny.

First of all, he sniffed at some of us and then he did his close surveillance of the place. 
Then he decided he liked this lady the most. He was rubbing against her for a long time. He liked her. 
(This lady is a Pranic Healing practitioner and we think it's because she exudes love, the kitty sensed it from her and that's why he chose her.)

The yoga teacher just started the class and we were all in this downward dog position for some warm ups, the kitty decided her favourite lady's bum is the best place for him to start his day as well!!

Yes, he just jumped up, made one or two rounds up there and settled himself down nicely. Doesn't he look he was so comfy up there??

We were amused but found the little fellow was so sweet too!

Guess what we did? We told this lady to stay in her downward dog and not to disturb the kitty. LOL!!! She's a good yogi and a good sport, and she stayed there for at least 10 minutes until the kitty called it a day.

By the way, the kitty went up onto her bum again when we were in another downward dog time but he didn't stay that long. 

Do you see the lady next to her who has a purple towel in front of her mat?

The little fellow found it was a temporary comfy home; he went over, adjusted himself, got his best spot, curled up and took his cat nap.  

He slept so soundly and obviously he wasn't disturbed by us at all.
He looked like an angel when he was sleeping.

He was there with us until our class was dismissed which was one and a half hours later.
When we packed, he got up and decided to leave too.

However, the lady with the purple towel decided to give the kitty a home. 
Bless her heart. She took the kitty home and our yoga teacher paid for the vet fees. 
The lady's two children are so happy to have the kitty with them now. 

That was a rainy morning but it was a morning with love and blessings too.

Very cool....

I thought this was going to be about Eva doing Yoga. Bailey has some very interesting stretches and poses that mimic yoga stretches. We joke that he was taking special classes when he was at daycare full time when I was teaching. Katy attends less frequently and never learned the poses.

I know you know how much and how deeply this story touched me. I just shared it on Twitter and on my Cat Chat With Caren & Cody Facebook page.

Ohhhh it nearly made me cry! They say that cats "find us" we don't find them. This little angel wanted that to be his new Mommy! What a wonderful woman that she adopted him and your yoga teacher is equally wonderful to pay the vet fees and all....this warmed my heart and totally made my day.

What a wonderful story! We are owned by two adopted cats as well as the two Rottweilers, so it's great to hear of this little one's adoption.

Oh what a lovely story, that is the cutest of kittens, sometimes things happen that were meant to be. It was just the right day for kitty to wander in and make himself at home, and he found himself a forever one! xxx

What a wonderful story!
I can't believe the lady was able to stay that way for 10 minutes!

Lian said...

COOL! I can't believe that cat sit on her bum while she is doing her downward exercise!!!

Peggy Frezon said...

What a clever kitty to find the yoga class and select her new mama. She looks so serene there in her preferred napping place! Glad she got a new home. What did they name her?

Vonnie said...

Awwww how cute a story is that :)

Oh, how wonderful that the purple towel lady gave the kitty a home, we loves that part of the story.

MOL, Mommy says that is why she can never do any exercise we cats always decide to sit on her when she tries. Luckily Fenris doesn't try to sit on her when she is exercising or she would be squashed.
