As cat lovers, we’ve all heard the phrase “If I fits, I sits”. While it may just seem like a quirky remark on their sitting habits, it’s so much more than that. Any Cat Owner who has tried to move a kitty will know they won’t shift for any living creature. Once a cat decides they want to fit somewhere, though, no power in the cosmos will stop them. No constraints on space or height will deter them from sitting where they want to sit.
With that in mind, we’d like to take a moment to honour five cats that have fit into whacky spaces.
Firstly, how can cats fit into such small spaces?
To our human eyes, the sight of our kitties in such confined spaces can be distressing. After all, they can’t really be comfortable in there…can they?
Well, as it turns out, they can be.
Unlike dogs or humans, felines have very flexible spines. This allows them to comfortably contort themselves in ways that would make the most seasoned yoga master wince. The result? Even the most narrow of nooks can provide a lounge for kitties both great and small.
With the science out of the way, let’s get to the fit-sitting cats!
#1: They fit inside a pet food box
This kitty is clearly a bona fide innovator. After eating their share of pet food, they used their pet food box to rest off their food coma. Lateral thinking at its finest!
#2: They fit inside a sink
It’s a black sheep in the feline world who seeks to expose themselves to water. While most cats will avoid making bodily contact with water, this kitty has put themselves in the line of fire. If they don’t enjoy the touch of H2O, then they must simply love dicing with danger.
#3: They fit inside a mixing bowl
Once again, an untrained onlooker might be surprised that a cat would choose to sleep in such a space. Yet when your spine can mould to the contours of a bowl, what’s not to love?
#4: They fit inside a pot plant
This kitty takes the idea of “getting in touch with nature” to a whole new level!
#5: They fit inside a…huh?
Okay, we’ll be honest: we have no idea what’s happening in this image. This cat may have just transcended the space-time continuum.
