Have you heard of Munchkin cats? They’re a breed of cat that has very short legs. They put me in mind of sausage dogs except that, well, they’re cats.
When I saw a hyper Lola crouched like this on the mat by the front door, I immediately thought she looked like a Munchkin. With her legs all tucked up they look like they are shorter than they should be for her body. Somehow she looks both adorable and ridiculous!
I’m not sure what it is about that mat, but she really seems to love playing with it. I’ve written before about how she loves to roll herself up in it, or scratch at it, or just generally ruffle it up and make a nuisance of herself.
I’ve also written before about how interesting it is to see how different the cats look when they are laying (or sitting, or standing) in different positions. I stand by that statement. I’ve never seen Lola’s legs look as short as they do here!
