For anyone out there who is a yogi and also a pet lover, then this is probably a familiar scenario.
You want to exercise, so you get out the mat and lay it out on the floor—cue the cats.
Even if they’d been happily minding their own business before this, now suddenly they need your undivided attention. But you just want to burn some calories, so you try to ignore them.
Inevitably, they steal the show by looking wayyy cuter than you while doing the same yoga pose as you are.
I love cats just about as much as I love yoga. In fact, sometimes I have the sneaking suspicion that they’re tiny gurus sent to distract us from our own egos by pulling our attention into orbiting the kitty’s own quite sizable one.
But what can we do? No matter how often they interrupt our plans for yoga, there’s really no way to stay mad at these guys!
