Your flexible cat – it’s hard to get him in his pet carrier

cat-stretchingCats are natural yoga teachers. They’re sleek, flexible and mobile and we admire their talent for stretching, bending and getting in and out of tight spots.  What makes a cat so limber?  Their anatomy plays a big role.  They have thirteen thoracic vertibre to our twelve and seven lumbar vertibre to our five. This gives cats a big advantage in spinal mobility and flex mobility.  Cats also have a tail that acts as a counter balance.  Add to this a set of free floating clavicle bones and you’ll know why it’s hard to get your squirmy cat in his pet carrier when it’s time for a trip!
