Cats are probably one of the most flexible animals ever, which makes them the perfect yoga buddies. Sometimes the poses these funny cats strike are so hilarious it’s impossible to resist taking a picture. And sometimes, this is how new trends are started.

A Japanese Twitter user called Mttkmsan decided to post a hilarious photo of a neighbor’s cat named Yamame-kun who fell asleep on his back, stretched but completely relaxed. This tweet, where the adorable cat looks pretty long, soon got some replies from other Twitter users in Japan posting their flexible cats in similar positions, and they’re amusing! Scroll down to see our selection of long cats for yourself, vote for your favorite funny photos, and if you have silly cats of your own - let’s join the Japanese and try to catch them stretching so everyone else can see how long they are!
