12 Sassy Dogs And Cats Crossing Their Paws That Are Too Cool To Handle

You’ll often see your dog or a cat sitting in a comfy pose with their paws crossed over each other, what makes them do that? Ever wondered? It’s when these furry floofs are comfortable with their environment and surroundings. They mostly would exhibit this pose while you both are randomly chilling in the living room alongside a fire on a cold day – just making up a situation, it might also happen on summery days, lol.


This sight soothing pose is also known as polite paws. It’s so because your pet is acknowledging the fact that it feels comfortable around you and that it senses no danger while being at home. We’ve compiled some of the politest paws you could paw-sibly come across!

Double dose of serenity

As explained by animal behaviourists, this pose takes the weight off the shoulders of our furry friends. Hereby they choose to sit in this pose when they are fully content as well as they’re sure that there’s no danger around. This mostly happens when humans are not around but in the case of domestic pets, the odds are that these bundles of fur simply come to your lap and sploots with their forepaws crossed.

Animals communicate through different body signs and pose. They are very sensitive in sensing love, affection, and danger. They also get to know when you are stressed and worried, that’s when snuggles and cuddles begin to make you feel better.

Having a cat or a dog around as a pet brings so much happiness and contentment, it’s not just us who feel content due to their presence, our pets too, feel safe around us and ‘polite paws’ is another example of how they express their trust in us.

If you’ve ever captured or plan to capture your pet being polite to you, make sure to share it with us we’ll love to adore their cuteness by an extra mile!
