This would purrrobably be, paws down, our favourite of what has now become an annual (this being the second) event. Cats on Mats Kitten Yoga, which is put together by the crew behind Sydney Cat Cafe, is back by pawpular demand. It seems like these guys have a knack for combining things we really like and inserting super cute kittens into the mix. Nice move. Also, as an aside, the number of cat puns we’re about to drop on you during this article will not decrease. You’ve been forewarned.
Cat on Mats is pretty much purrrcisely what it sounds like. You do a yoga class while cute, fluffy, curious, cuddly, adoptable kittens climb on and/or around you. Pretty simple concept here. But like Bruce Lee once said, “Simplicity is the key to brilliance.” Applicable.
These pawsonal trainers are going to whip you into shape. Not really. They’re there to be adorable. And they do that really well. Purrrticipants will also be welcome to enjoy a high kit-tea and cuddle sesh with their new furry friends afterwards. A portion of the proceeds from ticket purrrchases will be going to Maggie’s Animal Rescue. Again with the winning combo thing.
The toughest part about this yoga class? Not taking any cat(s) home with you.
We’d love to tell you we’ve gotten all the animal puns out of our system meow. But that’s not pawsible. Ok, we’re done.
