30+ People Share Some Of The Cutest Pics Of Cats Embracing Their Loaf Identity

The loaf position is one of the cutest poses of a cat that people just can’t ignore. No need for any flour, a cat herself can be the loveliest loaf on Earth. Loafing is considered a resting status when their paws are tucked in under the body so that’s why when people witness them chilling with the loaf pose they would be mistaken for a loaf of bread. And there are so many funny and adorable loaves based on their fur color: ginger loaf, cinnamon loaf, toasty loaf, burnt loaf, double-trouble loaves, and so on.

To worship the one-of-a-kind position that no other animals could mimic (Can dogs loaf?), Reddit has a community where cat loaf-ers share thousands upon thousands of photos of cats do their loaves, which has reached more than 550k members, called r/catloaf. If you’re reading this article, this is a sign for you to join that subreddit!

To know more about this cute behavior, there are so many studies that explained the reason why a cat does the loaf position.

“Generally speaking, a cat who is lying with their paws tucked underneath them is considered relaxed. They aren’t preparing to defend themselves or run away.” – Mikel Delgado, Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis stated.

Another reason is they want to preserve their energy and heat. Cats can’t live without warmth, especially the Sun. Loafing is such a good way to maintain and enhance the temperature. While some people also have another opinion about it, felines do loaf to show their unwillingness to communicate. They also have a high alert about their surroundings when they are relaxing with that pose.
