Unwind with felines
An orange and white cat tiptoes in the darkness between students gathered on the floor of the Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg for an evening yoga class on Thursday. One black kitten claws at a yoga mat while a larger black cat uses a nearby cardboard box as a scratching post. One particularly poised cat is perched among a dozen electric candles that illuminate the dark room. As Body Electric Company Yoga co-owner and teacher Jenny Miller guides students through classic cat and cow poses and downward dog stretches, an occasional meow evokes giggles. The cat yoga class is part of a monthly series to try to get more pets adopted from the shelter. The next class will be held Thursday, Oct. 29 at 6pm. All ages are welcome, no experience is necessary, and there is a $10 suggested donation.
