When we wake up though, we have to make sure that we are fully stretched out. This ensures our little catty-muscles are warmed up and that humans think we're even cuter, when they watch us :)
First, please let me say that there is absolutely no point in half-stretches or stretches that aren't exagerrated enough. These kinds of stretches are a waste.
I stretch my body parts in order, as do most cats, and here is my routine for perfect stretches;
-Start by standing up fully, and arching your back so that your fur stands on end.
-When your back is fully arched, start to lean forwards on your front paws.
-Lean completely forwards on your front paws, so it looks like you are bowing down.Stretch out the paws themselves, to reveal your claws (this way all of your little catty-toes get stretched too). Half-close your eyes for maximum cuteness.
-Stand up fully again and, leaning slightly forwards - nose over toes - start to extend your favoured back leg (I always start with my right one).
-Stretch your right leg as far back as it will go, sticking it out almost horizontally, off the floor.
-Do the same with your left leg.
-Finally, stroll off with catty-grace and elegance.
and those are my catty-stretch instructions :)
