The cat bow
Start out with the classic play bow. Based on a pose cats do when they’re feeling friendly and playful, you can do it too! Kneel on the ground and put your hands in front of you, just like they do. Leave your hands open and their chin up, and try to channel all the innocence and sweet charm of your favorite cartoon kitties. You’ll get a pic that is as cute as it’s fun.
