Kitty Bungalow, Luxe Paws, and Kitten Yoga!

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

As CEO of Feline Yogi, I stay extremely busy and sometimes am not able to blog as much as I would like. In a purr-fect world, I would sit at the computer all day long and impart my yoga wisdom for felines and humans alike but since I supervise one who is of the human persuasion I take up much of the slack as you can imagine!

Pippy’s world this week is centered around Kitty Bungalow, Luxe Paws, and a yoga kitten!

Kitty Bungalow: My human is on the committee for Kitty Bungalow’s  A CATbaret! – A One-Night Celebrity Musical Celebration of the Alluring Feline this upcoming Sunday, Aug 4. She is way behind on my work tasks for her but since this event benefits cats, I am willing to give her a pass this week.

The event is going to be pawsome so if you are in the L.A. area come out and support them! Several bloggers will be blogging live from the event. I may even let my human blog, tweet, and instagram  from the event if I feel she will represent me well.

Luxe Paws: In other news, my humans are fostering a kitten temporarily for Luxe Paws.  At least that’s what they say.  I too was a temporary foster and you see how that ended up. Actually, the kitten  has a permanent foster home on Thursday so I wish this little kitten the best on his feline journey in this world.

Kitten Yoga: As soon as the kitten entered our home, I told my human to get out The Yoga Cat Mat  so he could begin his yoga practice early in life with the aid of a decent mat and not just whatever surface he can find.

I have been helping the kitten with some poses and I can tell he’s going to be another feline yogi master! But then aren’t all of us felines yogi masters?

Meow and Namaste!

Featured Feline Yogi Yoga Cat-Dunkel Ruschenberg

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

Dunkel loves catnip!

Dunkel loves his Feline Yogi Yoga Cat Mat!

The thing that I love about the on-line world (and being CEO of Feline Yogi) is meeting all the pawsome Feline Yogi yoga cats out there. My newest on-line friend is Dunkel Ruschenberg and he is also the Featured Feline Yogi Yoga Cat this week.

Dunkel ( long time yoga practitioner) says that he was so excited when he saw the Feline Yogi Yoga Cat Mat  featured on Sparkle the Designer Cat’s blog that he bought one immediately.  Sparkle is another yoga cat friend of Dunkel’s and mine and a very skilled yoga practitioner as well!

Dunkel is a yoga master!

Dunkel is a yoga master!

Even Dunkel’s human has gotten into yoga lately and they often like to practice together.  Dunkel is always happy to offer a few pointers. It’s important that we yoga cats offer help to our humans. I know I’m constantly having to correct my human’s form because some of her poses are so pitifully pathetic. But then again, this is one of the ways we can help guide our humans to enlightenment.

Dunkel writes to me that the catnip ball is his favorite part. Being the catnip connoisseur that I am, Pippy was very happy to hear this. This euphoric herb is a very important part of the yoga experience for us felines and the Yoga Cat Mat was designed with this in mind.

Look at his amazing flexibility!

Look at his amazing flexibility!

Dunkel’s favorite pose is the side stretch pose where he lies on his side and stretches! The Sanskrit name for this pose is: Anantasana. Notice his form in the picture above felines. His attention to detail and stellar skill set is evident by the perfect alignment he exhibits in this challenging pose.

In addition to being a premier yoga cat, Dunkel has also started a cat blog of his own with his fellow yoga cat house companions  Smokey and Vito. It is called Three Cat’s Tails. Pippy visits his blog quite often. Click on the link above or here. Check it out and say hi and that Pippy sent you!

A Tribute to Cinny

Greetings felines and the humans who serve us!

Cinny was a true Feline Yogi!

Cinny was a true Feline Yogi!

My human is sad this week because one of her best human friends lost her beloved feline companion Cinny. I never met Cinny personally because Pippy does not like to travel but I do know that Cinny was a pawsome example of a true feline yogi!

Yoga teaches us that life in this physical body is not permanent but that the spirit lives on. Cinny knows that as do all of us feline yogis. I know you humans grieve when we make our transition but know we are always with you and will always love you!

Be free Cinny and catspeed to you on the next part of your  journey! We will all catch up with you on the other side!

Until next time….

Meow and Namaste!

Love,

Pippy

RIP Beautiful Cinny! You will always be in our hearts!

Distractions that Hinder the Yoga Cat’s Practice

feline yogi yoga cat

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

I’d like to specifically address the humans this week.  I know that you admire us yoga cats and rightly so yet you often make it hard for us to practice.

Do you want to learn from us and maybe just maybe reach a small bit of enlightenment in your lifetime? If so (or even if you don’t because you know you’re a lost cause) please take special note of the list below.  Take every precaution to make sure that we yoga cats’ yoga time is free from these distractions. Thank you in advance!

  • STROKING AND PETTING: Please don’t start in with a bunch of petting when we are meditating or practicing a particularly challenging asana. We prefer to come to you when we want pets and not the other way around.
  • TALKING IN A HIGH PITCHED TONE: We know that we are adorable creatures and do like to hear you say so but please speak to us as the supreme beings we are and not like we are toddlers.
  • EXCESSIVE PHOTO TAKING: Taking pictures of us constantly  while we are trying to practice yoga is very annoying.  Honestly what did you humans do before digital photography?
  • NOT ENOUGH YOGA MATS TO GO AROUND: For multiple cat households, please provide enough mats for each of us to practice on even if it means letting us use yours. And if you decide to practice at the same time as us and we want your mat as well, then please step aside or learn to work around us.
  • THE VACUUM CLEANER: The noise that comes blaring from this horrible machine makes us run the risk of getting our perfectly aligned chakras out of whack!
  • NOT PROVIDING ENOUGH CATNIP: Please make sure you always have plenty of catnip in the house especially during yoga time. Please keep on good terms with your catnip connection or better yet grow it in the house so you never run out.

These suggestions are just the tip of the iceberg. Felines, please chime in with your suggestions as well and have your humans post them in the comments section. We yoga cats must stand up for ourselves and make sure that our humans do not cause us to devolve!

Until next time…

Meow and Namste!

Love, Pippy

Daisy Yoga in Santa Monica

Greetings felines and the humans who serve us!

The Featured Feline Yogi Yoga Cat this week is from Santa Monica, CA  and her name is Daisy. She is a very skilled yogini and has perfected her poses without ever stepping inside a yoga studio.

If you’ve ever been to Santa Monica, then you know that yoga studios and human yogis walking around carrying their yoga mats are everywhere! (I hope it’s clear that I mean the humans walk around and not the yoga studios although in Santa Monica one never knows!!)

Daisy likes to get up early and meditate on her Feline Yogi Yoga Cat Mat.  While the west-side wanna be human yogis are barely out of bed at 5am, Daisy is up well before the crack of dawn and meditating on her Feline Yogi Cat Mat.

yoga cat daisy 2 Within the next few hours, the human yogis are stopping by Starbucks for a little kick start to their day and so they can make it through that first Down Dog.  Daisy has already gotten her day “Kick Started” and has indulged in quite a bit of catnip!

Santa Monica is where my human practices her yoga along with other humans who ardently strive to reach that enlightened state that comes oh so natural to us felines. I hear so much about Santa Monica from my human and how great the yoga is in that fine beach town but never about the yoga cats. I knew there had to be some yoga cats in Santa Monica and I’m so glad I met Daisy. Meow and Namaste Daisy! Show those humans how it’s done!

Until next time….

Meow and Namaste!

Love,

Pippy
