Yogi Cats Fun!

Several weeks back I posted about my new book Yogi Cats which also includes a special yoga challenge written by Pippy, CEO (Cat Executive Officer) of Feline Yogi.

In addition the book includes adorable graphics and inspiring quotes of which I’m posting some of those below. In the weeks ahead, I’ll post about a special Yoga Challenge Pippy will be organizing for Instagram!

Greetings felines and the humans who serve us!

Pippy here! Have you been wondering what I the Feline Yogini and CEO (Cat Executive Officer) of Feline Yogi have been up to?  Yes, I know I have not blogged in a long time but I have a good excuse! My human and I have been super busy with the Yoga Cat Mat Toys, developing new products, doing lots of yoga,  and getting ready for the LA Feline Film Festival!

We are so excited that this pawsome event is coming to the town we live in! As soon as we found out about it, I encouraged my human to sign up right away! My humans love cat videos and who doesn’t? We kitties pretty much own the internet or caternet if you will!

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, please come by the Feline Yogi booth this Sunday, September 21, at Exposition Park, Los Angeles, CA 90007. For more info please go to their website: LA Feline Film Festival for tickets. A portion of the proceeds will go to help local animal rescues and shelters.

Feline Yogi will be selling Yoga Cat Mat Toys, kitty toy yoga props, catnip bags, tote bags, and tshirts! Our friends from Luxe Paws will be there and a portion of our sales that day will go to help this animal welfare group based in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles.

The Film Festival is being  sponsored by Organikat who has teamed up with the Walker Art Center. Found Animals Adopt & Shop is the principle sponsor. In addition to great cat videos, fun vendors, and cat adoptions, some famous cats will attend as well!

Meow and Namaste! Hope to see you there!

Here’s to a Cat-tastic 2014!!

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us! And Happy New Year!

Hanging out and taking it easy this past week

Hanging out and taking it easy this past week

I, Pippy (being European at heart) took an extended vacation this past holiday season. I did not return back to my duties as CEO of Feline Yogi on January 2, like many of my counterparts in the American business world. Instead I took several more days, lounged around, and humored my human by letting her take pictures of me for Instagram!

When one of my humans this past week asked me “Pippy what are your New Year’s Resolutions?”, I was at  first taken aback!  Pippy does not make resolutions!  Resolutions were invented for humans to make them feel empowered for the first week of the year. And as we all know,  by mid-January nary a word is spoken again about their oh so ambitious resolutions!

My human all excited about the New Year and the Resolutions she will not keep!

My human all excited about the New Year and the Resolutions she will not keep!

 I have never once heard either of my humans following up in March, August, or even late January on how their resolutions are going for them. No, not once! And do you know why? Because they have forgotten them by that time!

However, after much contemplation I decided why not!! I can play the ” New Year’s Resolutions” game and unlike humans I will keep mine! Below are my resolutions for 2014 and I promise that I will get back to you in late January as to how it’s going!

  • Sleep more
  • Pose for more Instagram pictures
  • Watch more Bird T.V.
  • Take up more room on the bed at night
  • Walk on more computer keyboards
  • Get on my human’s yoga mat when she gets it out (yes I know I have my own yoga mat but that’s not the point!)
  • Jump up on more “no no places” like the kitchen cabinet, the male human’s computer table, the lap of my female human’s mother who does not like cat hair on her designer outfits, etc…
Practicing one of my favorite poses-Loaf pose!

Until Next time….Meow and Namaste to All! And Best Wishes for a cat-tastic 2014!!

Love,

Pippy

Neko: Fur-ever With Us!

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

Neko: ?-2013 Rest in Peace Sweet Boy

Neko: ?-2013
Rest in Peace Sweet Boy

A very important member of our family crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this past week. Neko came to us in the summer of 2012 when my human found him in front of our house after her evening walk.  He was skinny and had multiple health problems. The vets estimated him to be between 15-20 years old. Several times he was not expected to make it but he, my humans, a very determined vet, and the rest of us kitties never gave up!  We all pulled together to see Neko through!

Neko loved bags!

Neko loved bags!

Eventually Neko’s health problems got under control and he lived a full and comfortable life with us even though it was a short period of time.  He also played an important part in developing the Feline Yogi Cat Mat and was always willing to pose for the camera and demonstrate the stellar yoga techniques that only a wise kitty of his age could do!

Lion Pose kept Neko looking young!

A few days before he transitioned, Neko suddenly stopped eating and was not feeling well. My humans took him to the vet and found out he was in heart failure and had various other complications as well.  We all enjoyed a few more days together until Neko told us he was ready to continue on the next part of his journey.

When my human's dad came to town, Neko loved curling up with him while he napped!

My humans are sad and often break into tears unexpectedly. I keep reminding myself to have patience with them and that my job is to help them see that Neko is still with us and will be forever. I know it seems like we kitties are never with you humans long enough but that is part of the plan. One of the many reasons we bond with you humans on this planet is to teach you that life is eternal and nothing ever dies. Beings may change form but the story does not end there. Far from it!

Neko loved technology!

Meow and Namaste dear Neko! You were a great kitty housemate and I wish you Godspeed on the next phase of your journey. I will see you on the other side one day and we will practice a few “downward facing cat” poses together. Just like old times!

And God asked the feline spirit
“Are you ready to come home?”

“Oh, yes, quite so”, replied the precious soul.
“And as a cat, you know I am most able to decide anything for myself.”

“Are you coming then?” asked God
“Soon”, replied the whiskered angel.
“But I must come slowly
My human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.”

“But don’t they understand?” asked God –
“That you’ll never leave them?”
“That your souls are intertwined, for all eternity,
That nothing is created or destroyed,
It just is . . . forever and ever and ever?”

“Eventually they will understand” replied the cat
“For I will “Whisper” in her heart – that I am always with her.
I just am . . . forever and ever and ever!

– Unknown

 

Until Next time….

Meow and Namaste to All!

Love,

Pippy

Yoga Cat Fun

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

How many of you felines out there have stressed out humans? Does your human over-schedule themselves, over-obligate themselves, and set up unreasonable expectations for one of a lesser species?  I know mine does! And my human practices yoga almost every single day! Not that one would know!

It’s important that we felines remind our humans to have some fun now and then. DISCLAIMER: AFTER OUR NEEDS ARE TAKEN CARE OF OBVIOUSLY! Yoga is a serious thing but it can also be fun. Felines take a look at this 30 second video I found on You Tube of a cat and her human having fun while practicing yoga. Share with your own humans and have some fun this week! Life is too short to be taken seriously all the time.

 

Until next time…..

Meow and Namaste!

Love,

Pippy

Featured Feline Yogis: Mulberry Spot & B.W. Huckleberry

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

The featured Feline Yogi Yoga Cats this week are Mulberry Spot and B.W. Huckleberry. Both of these gorgeous felines are accomplished yogis who take their yoga practices very seriously.

Their human recently took this charming video of Mulberry Spot practicing vigorously away when all of the sudden B.W. Huckleberry comes along to discuss his form. Like humans, the felines community sometimes disagrees on what exactly is proper form and we are quick to aid each other, offer suggestions, and make adjustments.

Enjoy watching these two esteemed yogis in this short video and you too can learn something about proper technique!

Meow and Namaste Mulberry Spot and B.W.Hucleberry! Thanks for sharing your yoga practices with us!

Until next time…..

Meow and Namaste!

Love,

Pippy
