Dream Dive

(“urmpth… ehn… and now Louganis steps up to the platform… Looking calm, collected, very much in form… he’s in position now… and it’s a perfect backwards somersault with a cannonball finish! And the crowd is on its feet now…”)

Via Al King.

    Tucked in for the night.

  12. Like babies and puppies and kittens. They’re like “I’m SLEEPING, dammit!”

  14. Mary (the first) says:

    That’s just about what I thought, too! I honestly don’t think I’ve ever met a cat I didn’t like and want to snorgle, instantly.

  15. I used to be able to do that ::sigh::

  17. This is an almost cinnabon pose – feetsies need to be tucked in for the perfect round roll for full cinnabon position.

  18. SlaveToCat says:

    Slap a British Diving Team Speedo on him and he could be the twin of Tom Daley. Sigh……..

  19. Around our house, this is known as the Exxxtreme Catwad position.

  20. He would’ve gotten more points if he’d pointed those toes more.

  21. My friends and I call this the kitteh pie formation.

  22. He’s starring the exciting action movie Sleep Hard 2: Sleep Harder.

  23. Cats look at yoga/ballet positions and laugh.

  25. My Dante is very, shall we say, rotund, and he regularly humiliates me while I do my poses.

  26. joools in PDX says:

    He nails the tuck!

  27. I second that, Calirdelune 😀

  28. Perfect form…and the crowd goes wild……

  29. victoreia says:

    I wish my cats would share their secrets for such *intense* sleeping!

  30. Our kitteh does this lots and cause she’s orange (sort of prawn colour) and prawn shaped in this position we call it prawning 🙂

  31. This is my cat Frank. He is as snuggable as he looks 🙂

  32. At our place it is known as the Jumbo Shrimp.
