This is true, and has been my experience with cats. Sorta.
If I did yoga at home, Digger and Chloe often situated themselves beneath me, so that I couldn’t do the poses properly, or I’d be sure to land on them. Shadow adopted this habit after she saw the amount of success Digger had with it.
Thena, on the other hand, bit my feet the one and only time I tried to exercise around her.
I think they’re trying to tell me something.
