Ever noticed that when a cat sits with all paws and tail tucked neatly underneath the body, it resembles a loaf of bread? So loved is this position by the Internet community, it even has a name, the catloaf.
The catloaf is not to be mistaken for a monorail, which is similar except that the cat’s head would be laying down, chin on floor. There are even different renditions of a catloaf. For instance, when kitty has one paw sticking out, this is known as catloaf on a stick.
