You have probably seen your cat sleeping or doing basically nothing in strange poses.
But how do they do that?
A cat’s spine can rotate more than the spines of most other animals, and their vertebrae have a special, flexible, elastic cushioning on the disks, which gives it even more flexibility. A flexible spine also helps to maintain the speed and grace of cats.
When cats run, their backs contract and extend to give them maximum stride. Their shoulder blades are not attached with bone, but with muscle, and this gives a cat even greater extension and speed. It is also the reason why cats can get themselves into tiny spaces, as they can squeeze their shoulders very tightly together and shove themselves in to a jar.
Cats can jump nine times their height. Their flexible spines and shoulders, and great spring in their legs, are the reasons for this superpower .When cats run, they increase their stride by extending their backs and can stride at least three times their own body length. And when they fall from a high position,(don’t try this at home:-) they have the ability to re-align their bodies and land safely.
