I recently noticed that Moira extends one of her front leg a lot of the time when she is resting. Here are some pictures I took yesterday not the best quality but her paws are white so easy to see them in the dark  :2thumbsup

I'm curious what it might mean. Does your cat do something similar? My other cat doesn't do this at all.

Melody does this all the time!!  She lays down and gets comfy, then she tucks one leg under and extends the other.  We love it.  No idea why.  Glad to know she isn't the only one. :lol

Also love when she is standing up and aligns all four paws together in the front.

I find this very amusing and glad other cats also do it. For Moira it's a new thing. I know what you mean by the pose where the paws are aligned. Make them look very cute.

Dixie does this when she's in her bed and sometimes extends both legs crossed.

Grab a picture next time they do it. 

 

Moira has now started doing it at night too. She sits on my chest puts one of her paw forward starts purring but then she claws in me a little which kinda hurts and I have to move her. She also dribbles on me a lot hahahahaha
