house cat does it, every wild cat does it: that unmistakably feline
stretch, with the graceful roller-coaster sweep of the spine, neck
and front legs stretched to the limit, and claws extended for a
refreshing revival of every muscle on line. But the pose seems made
for the cheetah. The slender, long-legged cat with the small head
is the picture of grace in any position, and this classic stretch
seems to have been designed to show off his incredible physique.
Perhaps my most favorite of all cats, the cheetah is an artist's
dream of a model. Its stately personality and built-for-speed streamlined
body, unmatched in grace and flexibility, never ceases to provide
another great pose to tempt the sculptor's hand."
