When cats wake up and yawn, it’s a way of greeting their favorite people, explains renowned British feline behaviorist and biologist Roger Tabor in his book, "Understanding Cat Behavior."
"It’s a sign that they feel comfortable in their surroundings," Tabor says.
The yawn is usually a widemouth yawn in which the tongue curls up like a ladle. Cats often stretch simultaneously and then get up to do something important to them, like eat.
However, they often go through this yawning-stretching ritual only to turn around and reposition themselves for another nap!
