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!

Friends of Felines’ Rescue Center

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

Freinds of Feline Rescue Center

What a super cool place the Friends of Felines’ Rescue Center is! Notice one of the kitties practicing yoga on the green Yoga Cat Mat!

I have some super special Feline Yogis to tell you about this week. Several weeks back my human and I received an order from the United Kingdom! Pippy here has never been to the U.K. but my human has and she said it’s a fabulous place.

Benny a very handsome feline and his human Lucy bought two Yoga Cat Mats to donate to the Friends of Felines’ Rescue Center in Defiance, Ohio. They are a great rescue and home to many little yogi cats while they await for their furr-ever homes!

And get this! They have a 24 hour kitty webcam where you can see the kitties in action. It’s a lot of fun and my human has become addicted. You would think she had enough kitties at our house to get her fix but I guess humans can never get enough of we fabulous felines. Check out the Kitty Cam by going to this link: 24/7 Kitty Cam

Every evening the group has a special event called “Boxes” and they open presents that have been sent to the kitties. Below is a U-tube video of the Feline Yogi Cat Mats being opened. About six minutes in you can see the Yoga Cat Mats being opened.

This is a great group and I’m so glad my human and I found out about them. One little yogi cat that we would like to highlight is an amazing little cat with Cerebellar hypoplasia (CH) called Derecho, and he especially loves mats! He is the kitty you see practicing on the mat in the photos above. You can read more about his touching story by clicking here. Derecho, we hope you enjoy practicing on your Feline Yogi Cat Mat! You are quite the Yogi!

Meow and Namaste to all at the Friends of Felines’ Rescue Center and to Benny and Lucy for their generosity.

The Very distinguished and handsome feline Benny from the U.K.!

Until Next time….

Are Cats Taking Over the Internet?

Contemplating what it means to belong to a superior species and plotting more ways to take over the Internet ( I mean Caternet!)

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

Have cats taken over the internet? You bet we have!!

But this is nothing new to any feline or human. We practically own the internet and more and more humans are acknowledging our superiority and understanding that they way to be truly happy is to serve and cater to the feline population. Every day more and more kitties show up all over the web to enlighten and entertain those of the human persuasion. We felines are on a roll and have no plans for stopping until every bit of bandwidth is taken up with cats!

Just recently one of the world’s most respectable investigative news organizations The Guardian   asked people to submit their pictures of cats doing yoga. (Yes, The Guardian has their priorities straight! ) Hundreds of pictures were submitted and they chose 12 of the best and featured them in a special photo gallery. Do you know who was included in that gallery? None other than Fergie the Cat who was our  Featured Feline Yogi back in May.  His human submitted a picture of him doing a pose on what else but his Feline Yogi Cat Mat!  Check him out and all the other accomplished yoga cats by clicking on the link below.

Click here for cats doing yoga: You will not be disappointed!

Soon one will not be able to Google any subject without a cat showing up on your search. Looking for info on how to save money? No problem, a site with cat pictures and videos will come up first in your search.  Wondering what is going on internationally in the news? Again, a cat site will come up and that’s really all you need to know!

Here I am doing an intense stretching pose

The other day my humans were watching yet another UTube cat video and commenting to each other about how cats have taken over the internet. Since I consider them my intellectual inferiors I try to avoid conversing to much because neither is very intellectually stimulating.   It did occur to me however that since we kitties have taken over the internet I’d like to propose a few vocabulary changes. The internet should now be referred to as the “Caternet” and when one talks about going online you will be going “fe-line” instead! What do you think?

Until Next time….

Meow and Namaste!

Love,

Pippy

Kitty Bungalow has a New School House!

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

I sent my humans to the Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats open house yesterday. They have a brand new school house for the kitty students and Feline Yogi is thrilled that yoga is on the curriculum for these yoga kittens who are soon to be master yoga cats!

Kitty Bungalow New School House

When headmistress Shawn Simons emailed me to ask if Feline Yogi could donate some yoga mats to the Charm School I immediately said yes yes yes!! I didn’t even consult with my human but she of course was on board as well.

We love Kitty Bungalow and the work they are doing in Los Angeles to find homes for street cats and more importantly they are strong advocates of TNR which is Trap.Neuter. Return. This is the method of humanely trapping feral cats, having them spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped for easy identification and then returning them to their colony to live out their lives.Click here to read more about TNR if you are not already familiar with this practice.

In the School House playgound/garden for the community cats, there's a strong reminder of TNR!

In the School House playgound/garden for the community cats, there’s a strong reminder of TNR!

TNR is where it’s at felines and humans. If we want to stop the overpopulation of unwanted kitties, the senseless killings that go on in the shelters throughout this country and the world, then we must get those kitties fixed! As mentioned on Kitty Bungalow’s website:  “Did you know that two unaltered cats and their offspring exponentially over 7 years could produce 420,000 cats?!” That’s a lot of cats!

I, Pippy, am fixed and thank goodness! I have no desire to raise kittens or have my lean trim svelte yoga figure distorted. I am a career gal and a master yoga practitioner. There are enough kittens in the world so I’m doing my part to help with this over-population problem.

If you’re not in the Los Angeles area and can’t help out at Kitty Bungalow, please get active with groups in your local area that support TNR. By doing so you make us kitties’ lives so much better.

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!

Pippy

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!!)

yoga cat daisy

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
