If there’s one thing that I love that cats do, it’s when they do that cute little bread loaf position! If you’ve just read that and you’re sitting there scratching your head wondering what on earth that means, it’s when cats tuck their legs under their bodies and it almost makes them look like a cat version of a seal. And, obviously, a purrfect little loaf of bread.
When cats bread loaf, there are a few specific reasons as to why. If you notice, they usually do it around you. And trust me when I say this is a good thing.
Cats will sploot which is simply magical, but that bread loaf position that they do is pretty darn cute, too. When your cat sits in this position, with their feet tucked under them, observe their facial expression. Often times your cat is in a relaxed state, so much so that its eyes are partially to fully closed. And, like mentioned above, this is something they usually do in the presence of their owners.
Being always on guard is the true nature of a cat. So, for them to position themselves in a bread loaf position ultimately means that they do not see or sense any potential dangers surrounding them. Therefore they position their bodies loafing style as to relax. Your cat sitting in a bread loaf position essentially means they don’t think they’ll need to utilize those claws of theirs anytime soon, too.
Sitting this way also helps your feline friend to preserve body heat. And, as we know, cats love being nice and toasty.
So, now that you’ve learned all about why it is that cats will bread loaf, now you can really enjoy this collection of cute cats just loafin’ around and stealing our hearts. Enjoy!
