This describes a stationary position where the perineum (area under the tail) and the forepaws are placed on the ground with the forelimbs straight, such that the body is held in an upright position. The head is usually in a neutral position, in that it is neither tucked into the body or held with the neck extended, although either are possible. The head may be mobile if the cat is passively exploring the environment from a sitting position. The tail is usually laid on the ground and curved loosely or tightly around the body. When a cat moves from a stand to a sitting position it is more common for the hindquarters to be folded towards the forepaws (as seen on this video clip) rather than the forepaws walked backwards into the sitting position.
