8-Bit and Scratch have both been known to do this. I call it "kitty rug".

Yup- Leo does this a lot. It *does* look like a "kitty rug"!

Some dogs do it too, and in the dog world, they call this position "frog dog."

Yes, both of my cats do that sometimes. Abby also likes to lay on her back with both her hind and front legs stretched out.

That is the position my Magic lays in most of the time. It's funny to watch him lay down because he just his front legs and back legs slide in different directions at the same time.

I wish I knew the answer. That is why I ran across your post because I two have a cat that does the same thing all the time.I don't know if there is something wrong with him.

My Cat Clancy does the same thing. In fact that's how he is on my profile page.   He is usually very relaxed when he is in this position, sometimes sleeping.

It's not too unusual.  One of my cats was fond of doing it on the floor during hot weather...sort of pressing her belly against the cool floor I guess.
