Wordless Wednesday - The Contortionist!!

Elle the Contortionist

This is Elle; our grand-kitty who lives with us.  Our daughter is a flight attendant flying Internationally (based out of JFK) and is here maybe one week out of a month.  We thought Elle would be mad at her when she comes home but she always welcomes her with open paws.

I'm amazed at the positions cats are able to sleep in.  Dogs too for that matter.  I'd like to see a human lay down on their back with hands and feet in the air and try to sleep.

Hi Marchel ~ What a wonderful pose - I laughed out loud.  I have a fondness for paws and the crossed front paws and the adorable back paws are just too cute for words.  And your new picture is lovely too!


Posted by Elizabeth Bolton, Cambridge MA Realtor (RE/MAX Destiny Real Estate Cambridge, MA) about 10 years ago

Hi Marchel!  I like your new picture!  Well now, Ellie, is a picture of happiness knowing she is at GrandHumanMa's!  She has NO WORRIES... it's plain to see!

Oh, so cute and cuddly, Marchel!  I am sure Elle is thrilled every time your daughter comes home!!!!

Hi Marchel, first that new picture of you is fantastic! And the kitty looks very very comfy. They sure can sleep in the strangest positions!

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) about 10 years ago

I just love that amazing ability cats have to somehow become "boneless" when they sleep!

Posted by Nancy Conner, Olympia/Thurston County WA about 10 years ago


There is nothing like a cat, is there?

I was down at the cat adoption store Sunday, and I know if I bring one home, Sweetie will love it, and I will have some serious 'splaining to do....

Maybe she's a gymnast in her previous life.

I didn't notice this before, but I love your new profile picture.....

Posted by Loreena and Michael Yeo, Real Estate Agents (3:16 team REALTY ~ Locally-owned Prosper TX Real Estate Co.) about 10 years ago

Marchel... Boy, not only does she look comfortable, but it makes me jealous that I can't move that way any more.

Hi Marchel,

I just love the photo of Elle!  How cute!  Thank you for the smile!



Posted by Rita Minion (O'Brien Realty) about 10 years ago

Kids and cats.... they can get away with that stuff.... I would be in the hospital after sleeping like that.

The picture of contentedness!

Sweet kitty! I love your new photo, Marchel. Good job.

Marchel, now THAT looks like one comfy cat! Oh that I could get in that position - again. ;-)

Hi, Marchel.  You have an adorable grandcat!  Miss Elle looks like she has the run of the house.   Do you spoil Miss Elle while her mom is away?

Posted by Bruce Walter (Keller Williams Realty Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana) about 10 years ago

She sure looks comfortable.  I have similar pictures of my cat.

Posted by Dee Mayers, San Gabriel Valley, CA about 10 years ago

DAVID, What is amazing is they can also look so comfortable in all their strange positions.

ELIZABETH, She has huge paws for a kitty and is great at putting them in to strange contortions.  She is also a klutz.  Up until she came in to our life I though all cats were graceful (NOT). 

DIANE, Thanks!  Elle figures she has a good surrogate Mommy.  Your wouldn't believe how fast she dumps me when our daughter comes in town though.  She is sitting beside me right now.

SHARON, She is a cuddler and a big one at that.  I often work with her on my lap and believe me I have a lap full. She is thrilled every time out daughter comes home.

ANDREA, She is actually in a cute position right now but not as cute as when she was snoozing in this picture.  Thanks for the compliment on my picture.



Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago

Hi Marchel...One of our puppies can sleep like that.  She must thinks she's a cat like your grand-kitty.  Do you have room for two frisky pups?  Maybe one week a month?


Posted by Kate Elim, Realtor 540-226-1964, Selling Homes & Land a (Dockside Realty) about 10 years ago

NANCY, Boneless is a good description for how a cat sleeps.

MIKE, I have always heard that cats are like potato chips, one is not enough.  We have two and they are about as different as night and day.  Funny thing my children are as different as night and day also. 

LOREENA, A gymnast she is not.  A klutz she is!!  I had no idea a cat could be so ungraceful.  Thanks for the compliment on my picture.  I just put it up a few days ago.  The specs are gone!

VALERIE, I don't know that I could ever move like that.  I've been taking a yoga/Pilate type class and those moves are difficult to make.

RITA, Elle makes me smile all the time.  She is quite the kitty.



Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago

What a cute cat photo.  Aren't they amazing animals and so entertaining!

Posted by 1~Judi Barrett, BS Ed, Integrity Real Estate Services -IDABEL OK (Integrity Real Estate Services 118 SE AVE N, Idabel, OK 74745) about 10 years ago

Comforts comes in all shapes. She looks uncomforgetable.

Posted by Terry & Bonnie Westbrook, Westbrook Realty - Grand Rapids Forest Hills MI Re (Westbrook Realty Broker-Owner) about 10 years ago


Now that looks like one very happy cat!

Posted by Lynda Eisenmann, Broker-Owner,CRS,CDPE,GRI,SRES, Brea,CA, Orange Co (Preferred Home Brokers) about 10 years ago

That's one content cat.  If we slept like that we would have aches all over and be looking for the Ben-Gay. 

Posted by April Solomon, Broker/Realtor/GRI (Keller Williams Professionals) about 10 years ago


Too funny!  It's amazing to see some of the positions our babies take while sleeping. Thanks for sharing!

Posted by Michelle Pimentel, ASP, IAHSP Empire Home Staging (Empire Home Staging Solutions) about 10 years ago

Marchel, That's a precious photo.  Kitty looks SO peaceful without a care in the world.  It must be nice to be a cat, especially one who is loved so much!

Posted by Laura Cerrano, Certified Feng Shui Expert, Speaker & Researcher (Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island) about 10 years ago

Marchel - She is so cute and I love the way cats curl up. She looks so comfortable.

Posted by Sharon Richards (Kirsten Realty Tampa Florida) about 10 years ago

TOM, Shoot I had to go in to a sports medical facility today because of hurting myself doing lunges.  I don't even want to think what I would hurt if I tried to do that kind of contortion.

TRICIA, Elle is a VERY content cat.  She especially loves to cuddle on laps.

MARIANNE, Thanks!  She is a sweet kitty; well when she feels like it.

TERI, I hear you!  I hurt myself just doing lunges exercising.  I have a Bakers cyst whatever that is but it sounds simple enough that I just don't do lunges.

BRUCE, YES, I spoil my grand-kitty while our daughter is away.  She thinks I'm a good surrogate Mom.  As soon as our daughter arrives back she drops me like a hot potato.

DEE, Since our children are grown I now find myself grabbing the camera for the pets (lol). 



Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago

Looks like a really big cat and she looks very comfortable.

Posted by John Cannata, Texas Home Mortgage - Purchase or Refinance (214-728-0449 about 10 years ago

KATHLEEN, I have a puppy looking at me right now with his puppy dog eyes. 

JUDI, They are entertaining and also VERY smart!

TERRY and BONNIE, It looks uncomfortable to me but she seems to enjoy it.

LYNDA, She is usually happy for some reason she gets cranky about 3:00 in the afternoon.  I have not figured that one out.

RICK, If I slept like that I would wake up stiff all over.

APRIL, You are right it would be ben gay time after a nap like that.


Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago


Looks like this kitty can really make you smile!

I swear our cats are "sister and brother" from other mothers! Cute shot!

Posted by c m about 10 years ago

Marchel, I love your new profile pretty!

I love kitties....I have three and they can do some of the funniest poses, both awake and sleeping.  Elle looks very content and must be enjoying a nice dream.

Posted by Ann Allen Hoover, CDPE SRES ASP e-PRO Realtor - Homes for Sale - AL (RE/MAX Advantage South) about 10 years ago

Marchel, she looks a lot like me on a Sunday afternoon.  That is my favorite position :)

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) about 10 years ago

ANN, She does make me smile.  I have never seen a kitty get in such goofy positions. 

SONJA, I have to agree, Elle is too cute.  Sometimes she gets a little bitchy so it is good that she is so darn cute.

RENE, Elle does have the good life.  She was not a rescue.  Our daughter got her from someone that my husband worked with and the kitties ruled.  That has been her life.  All the rest of our animals are rescues but life for Elle is all about Elle.

CHERYL, There's something about fat orange tabbies that is just too cute!!

ANN, I heard a saying about cats.  They are like potato chips, one is not enough.

GEORGE, I just had to go to the sport medicine clinic for doing lunges.  I think if I tried to sleep like that I would probably have to live at the clinic (lol).


Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago


I need to start posting shots of my dog.  He can always make me smile.

lol !

Hi Marchel, What an adorable photo...sure looks like she's all settled in!  Thanks so much for sharing.

ANN, Animal pictures always make me smile.  Well those human society commercials have almost made me cry.

JENNIFER, Thanks!  She does know how to get comfy.  She spent the evening on my husbands lap which was very unusual.  I guess she was mad at me for having my laptop on my lap.

SHELDON, A slinky is a good comparison.  Even with all that fat she can get in those strange contortions.

GARY, She is settled in.  She misses our daughter but makes the most of just having us.

Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) about 10 years ago

Oh to be able to relax like that! It looks like she is very comfortable even in that position.
