Another classic - The Teapot Pose

From Chen:
Hi Kah Yein,

To add to the glossary of cat poses, let us not forget the classic teapot pose. The criteria for this pose are:

  • the cat is sitting on its rump

  • the front legs are straight

  • and most importantly - one can see an over-arching curve of the upper spine

My cat very kindly demonstrated this pose today.



 Indeed, and why is this a classic pose?

In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.

It is said that in the beginning God created Man, but seeing him so feeble, He gave him the Cat.
- Warren Eckstein.


 Do I qualify?

The cat statue is wearing an earring! Yikes.

Well, what do you expect? It's Bastet, the cat-goddess!
