    Tired of sitting at your desk all day long? Backaches and shoulder pain slowing you down? Stretching might be just what you need! Cats know that better than anyone. Just look at these TCS kitties stretching and learn from them!

    You're never too young to stretch! Kittens learn how to do this at a very young age!

    If you're out of practice - take it easy and stick with light stretching. Start with your arms -

    Then stretch one leg at a time.

    Stretch both your arms while lying down, to take the pressure off your lower back -

    While still on your back, stretch both legs now and keep your arms relaxed -

    As you become better at stretching, you can try some advanced techniques like the full tail-to-nose stretch, also known as "I will measure the floor space for you".
    Stretching to the max feels so great!

    Believe it or not, some cats find it so relaxing they can fall asleep while fully stretched! Like this one -

    Or even like this -

    How about fully folded backwards for a sleeping position?

    Fortunately, more responsible kitties counter that with the full forward bend -

    Now, here's a very advanced level: Stretch and then... twist!

    Who says you can't sleep like that?
    Some cats are true contortionists. They can turn and twist to the "Not sure I have a spine" level -

    Important note: Is the window open? Are your neighbors watching? If you're stretching in the nude this could be a problem!

    Here's how one cat covered that aspect -

    Experiment while stretching. Worst case scenario, you'll end up looking silly -

    And shock your friends -

    The important thing is to keep at it and enjoy your stretching!

    It's amazing some of the twisted positions our cats get into and they seem as comfortable as can be. Love the tail between the legs!

    I have a lot of pictures of a lot of stretching cats, but this has got to be my favorite: my angel Maryam in the "frog position". No other cat I have known has ever done this.
