The laziest kitteh IN THE WORLD

This kitteh is either the laziest kitteh ever, OR it really likes the treadmill treads on his face. (Maybe it's like a big tongue lick?)

This cat is about to honk-shu right there.

Sender-Inner Frank S., Love the giggling, Video Taker Erik... I don't know how many drinks it took to figure this out, but count me in for next round.

Chortle! Mr. White Floof is determined to become ONE with the black moving rubbery thing.

Rofl.... and the look the kitty gives the camera at the end says it all. I am a CAT not a dumb dog! Cats do NOT demean theirselves by walking on treadmills.

I am going back to my nap!

Would someone put me in a car and hold me there while someone drives me to work. It's lazy Friday at 10:20AM and I'm still at home... Can't blame the poor little kitty.

My cat loves to snuggle my sneakers. Maybe that's why she keeps wanting to lie down? The treadmill mat probably smells like their shoes.

POOR KITTY. He's doing what dogs do when they don't want you to drag them someplace. Total passive resistance. Leave poor kitty alone!

Seeings as how slow that treadmill is, probably feels like giant kitty tongue licking his body!

Full body bathing, wouldn't you rather have someone else lick you than yourself?

LOL. You're right, the soundtrack just does it.

Dear Nuffers,

Kitty is not being harmed. Kitty is maybe having his dignity slightly bruised. Most kitties I know could stand to be taken down a notch or two. If I were the one holding Kitty over the treadmill, it would basically be turnabout for the 8 zillion times they have woken me up at 6 am by using my shoulder as a trampoline. Clearly Kitty is well-loved and is just getting a little gentle ribbing. Lighten up.

Methinks kitteh likes the feel...but she must be generating some major static electricity.

He's catatonic.
Is that how you spell that?
I'm too lazy to look it up...going to go lay on my treadmill now.

"He's catatonic."

maymee, that's BRILLIANT, lol! :-)

Rumi
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 10:43 AM

Perhaps the kitteh only wants to hear a soundtrack of OKGO in the background to make it all right?

I just watched it again and it made me laugh (almost) as much.

I think they were trying for Stupid Pet Tricks, but the thing is that if a cat doesn't want something, it will let you know clearly and--for its owner--painfully. The cat seems to like the rubbing. I had a cat that showed its displeasure very dramatically, but showed its pleasure somewhat passively. What memories. I don't have a problem with this video.

 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 10:48 AM

I'm sorry, I kind of feel sorry for the kitty - it's an adorable video, and obvious that the cat is loved... but still poor kitty :(

Kinder Gentler Carrie
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 10:49 AM

If the kitteh didn't like it, he'd show it with claws. It almost looks mean, except for the part where I bet the kitteh loves the feel of the treadmill on his face and is probably purring like a motorcycle's engine like mine does when I skritch his ears. Whadda cutie. :)

Danielle
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 10:51 AM

Hehehe, Kitty says

"NO!

If you no use tredmil, I no use it ether"

Nelle
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 10:53 AM

I agree with people who think it might feel like a big kitty tongue.

You know what? I'm-a place some nuff bets. (Not that I'm saying these, I'm just testing to see how well I've been playing along.)

Five (5) 'leave the poor kitty alone' (minus the previous one).

Three (3) complaints that the cat must be unhealthy to be so lethargic.

Three (3) 'from another cat owner' comments detailing the horrendous danger of putting a cat on a treadmill.

One (1) personal story about a family member, friend, or neighbour's cat who died horribly on or near a treadmill.

Of all the above, at least four (4) will contain the question 'How can they laugh at that poor cat that way?' and at least half will contain 'You can see he doesn't like it' or a variation thereof.

hahaha only a cat to figure out that rather than for exercising, threadmills are good for full body massages...

this weed is awesome.

raymi
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 11:02 AM

Hahahaha, man, I got ripped off. This is my cat and my treadmill and someone _else_ is taking credit for it. We had just moved in and the basement was chock full of stuff... so pardon the mess. :)

That cat is still as fluffy as ever, by the way. His name is Kosh. :)

Erik -- You one of the laffers?

You guys laugh funny. XD

Kara
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 11:04 AM

Kara, you busted me up good. I, too, was anticipating the nuffs, but you thought of one I didn't - the OBVIOUS poor health of the poor, lethargic kitteh.

Geeze, I wish people would lighten up.

Lisa
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 11:06 AM

LOL! i love it :) hahaha

Pooja

Kitty's look at the end clearly says "for this, I will use your face as a treadmill at three in the morning."

Clearly, the cat has performed the trick before, but just doesn't feel like it right this moment. I can relate. If kitty was really in distress it would have bolted the moment it was put on the treadmill, leaving its owner bleeding.

B. Modern that vid was GREAT! "nothin's gonna keep me down da da da" HIlarious! That cat has the best attitude! Totally like, wow, I can burn off some maj energy on dis here machine... whatevs about the toy, check out my buffness!" LOL

That's totally how I feel when I'm at the gym.

Erik, if "Kosh" is from Babylon 5, it's an awesome name for a cat and I wish I'd thought of it. (Quiet but very powerful alien who would make cryptic remarks of doom and then glide away, leaving you wondering WTF.) I recall a fan discussion as to whether cats were Vorlons or Shadows, and the conclusion that they were actually Keepers-- the hidden alien parasite that controls your behavior.

The hysterical laughter does make it even better - I agree that kitty is enjoying the rub. Maybe the cat feels like it's a perpetual face-rub greeting (you know how they do against you leg or the corners of things), or she's reverting back to kitten-hood and letting "mommy" clean her...?

Hey Erik, BACK-STORYTIME!

Manda
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 11:13 AM

that is exactly how i respond when i'm on my treadmill.

any nuffs please calm down. they are being so, so gentle with kitty, and if she wanted it this redonkulousness to stop, she would let them know.

it must feel good on her fur, like an automatic rubbing machine or something.

she's (or he's?) such a beautiful cat. that fur looks so silky soft and floofy!

jen
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 11:20 AM

My first cat did something like this whenever confronted with something she just didn't want to do. Immediate floppage down, everything goes limp. "Whatevs. you're not the boss of me."

This was how we knew she was NOT leash trainable. Clip the leash to her collar, and she immediately flopped over.

 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 11:23 AM

Hehe. Ok, I give.

Yes, Kosh is named after B5's Kosh. Bright white, but NOT quiet and NOT well mannered. He is a 4AM cat who wanders around the house yelling because he can see the bottom of his bowl again. I think Kosh is more of a Shadow, he likes conflict. So... sadly, his name doesn't quite fit.

His brother, Poojah (or Poody), the black cat you see briefly, is the doomsayer. He finds a perch and glares at anyone who approaches.

Hehe, and yeah, I'm the laugher. My wife is holding the camera. Uhh... I'm not too proud of my laugh in this. :D

The first time Kosh did that, he was a little unnerved, but he's a fairly fearless cat. He would normally walk for a little longer, but I think he's fed up with it. :)

For ... all those concerned. It was on the lowest setting and I made sure that his tail or any other part of him didn't get caught.

And, that glare at the end, yeah... we knew he was done. "Ooooh..." I've done it one other time, since this video (2006), and he does it the same way every time. I ought to get some shots of him poofed on the bed or playing human on the couch. :)

It's an Automatic Petting Machine!

check out Scooter (aka Dr. Ernie McScooterman). he's very beautiful and VERY into the treadmill...

At first, I was a little 'nuffy, but really, if the cat didn't like it, he would have let us know. Sometimes I walk around holding Bertha and she gives me that "I am not a shoulder monkey" look but kind of goes limp, it's a thing we do. And this is clearly a thing that Erik and Kosh do.

BTW, people, it doesn't take any nip or weed or drinky-drinky to start getting silly w/ the aminals. We should all know that.

berthaslave
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:05 PM

Erik:
This is so funny!!! Don't feel 'barrassed by your laugh! giggles are supposed to come out high!!! I think the black kitteh was trying to run interference, while saying HaHa kosh at the same time. Like I could help you, but I'm not gonna :)
Am I right? Or was he just trying to stay the heck away?

bugmom
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:08 PM

This cat has the same attitude towards exercise that I have.

Decca
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:10 PM

I find it kind of entertaining that there are so many comments telling the "Nuffs" to calm down, and yet, I haven't seen any nuffy comments yet. O.o Really, if the nuffs haven't arrived, don't talk about them. You might attract them >.>

Shawna
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:25 PM

Such a beautiful, fluffy kitty. And I love the backstory, Erik. It's fun to hear what prompted the videos/pics.

leannrose
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:32 PM

I wouldn't worry about it too much, at one point, I can hear him purring. Whatta cute kitty!

Anna
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:32 PM

Yeah, I think there were exactly two nuff comments, so on this post, it's actually the nuff smackdowns that are taking over! And they're kind of annoying, too! And now I'm getting all meta by being irritated at the anti-nuffers! When will it ever end?

Also, many thanks to whoever posted the link to the ok go video - hadn't watched it in a while. Hilarious.

hey-h
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:36 PM

"A petting machine? For Me? Let go, will ya! I'm trying to get my shoulers and head scratched on this thing and clearly, I don't need your help."

Jessica
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:37 PM

Oh yeah, I've seen this. The Ronco Pritty Kitty Automatic Feline Facial Peel. Clearly, someone has been watching their late-nite infomercials and, if I'm not mistaken, there should be a set of steak knives somewhere in the background there.

Jim L
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:37 PM

Eric, please inform Kosh that he is gorgeous and brilliant. But I suspect he already knows that.

Rumi, aww gee thanks! *blushes*

 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:40 PM

hahahaa - well done kitteh.. who needs to work out when one looks perfectly fluffy

Khadija
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:52 PM

OK Go clearly should have used this for their video instead. It fits.

Michelle
 |  Sep 28, 2007 at 12:52 PM

I'm getting really irritated by the anti-anti-nuffer comments!
