    The Reason Why Cats’ Backs Are Rounded


    In my post yesterday, I introduced the term nekoze (猫背 – literally meaning “cat back”), which means a rounded back.

    It is not good for humans to have a rounded back, but there are functional reasons why cats have rounded backs.
    (Cats have about 240 bones, whereas humans have about 200 bones.)

    First, cats have more bones and joints than humans and can bend and stretch their backs flexibly.

    Cats’ flexible and rounded backs can effectively absorb the impact of landing.

    In addition, cats can move very quickly by stretching the rounded back swiftly like a spring.
