Thanks to Cute Overload, we see yet another hilarious kitty video: [Read More]


would be funnier if they got them going really fast and then hit emergency stop so that they shoot forward

[How 'bout we try that with you, first? You know, dry run.- Ed.]

Those cats are TOO cute-and determined!!!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:08 PM

Beyond redonk cuteness!

Tank, that isn't very kind of you.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:11 PM

I don't know what's so great about two-legged treadmilling. I do that all the time.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:16 PM

I applaud their effort to work off all those kitty treats. (I think this is the only time in my life I've ever enjoyed a treadmill.)

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:18 PM

I'm making the same exactly squeals of laughter as the cat videographer, even on the second view. Ah, thanks for the laugh.

Is this something the cats just...do? Of their own volition?

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:23 PM

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:27 PM

Ah here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again...

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:27 PM

OOOOOMG. Me too, Shelley!!

Dying! Laughing! OMG!

I love how the calico trips over her own HEAD every time she climbs on! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. And the two-paw action. OMG.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:30 PM

My favorite part is that the cats are doing this because they like it, not because someone tossed them on a treadmill! It's really funny because of that!!!!!

That calico cracked me up.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:32 PM

The chick laughing in the background is as funny as the cats!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:36 PM

Ker-snorf! Best use of treadmill EVAR. My kitty would prolly just sleep on it... kinda like me!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:39 PM

girlnextdoortn, that's my favorite part as well :0)

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:40 PM

My cat would not even look at a treadmill. The two paw action had me on the floor laughing.

Just waiting for some commentroversy(sp) to start....

 |  May 10, 2008 at 12:54 PM

Aaahahahaha! Love the determination in those little paws even when Mama kept beeping up the speed!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:03 PM

Poor tabby just. Could not. Do it.

I understand the feeling. Meh.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:08 PM

That is the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. I love those kitties!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:08 PM

My cats just say, "No thanks, but you go right aheadzzzzzzzzzzzz . . ."

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:11 PM

PS My cats *are* interested in the treadmill, but only to the extent of trying to stop it, or trying to figure out "Where does it *go*??" Actually get on it and walk on it? Forget eet!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:14 PM

Comedy GOLD!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:15 PM

Omg. The video's over and I'm still laughing.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:18 PM

"Meh, two paws is just fine for my cawt-io workout today."

LOL!!! :D

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:19 PM

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:22 PM

Remind me to pee BEFORE I watch this video again.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:24 PM

A perfect CO post! That was hysterical!

TOO FUNNY! Somebody needs to send this to the lasagna-eating Garfield cat as motivation.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:30 PM

I loved that, the look of determination on the cats' faces! Wish I had that much motivation.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:34 PM

Okay, if these were my cats, I would SO have a greenscreen set up behind that treadmill so I could make a chase sequence!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:48 PM

Laughing my head off here!!☺

Honest to YaYa
 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:51 PM

burning the calories. wish i had their determinay-shons

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:52 PM

Oh boy - this isn't going to be popular, but in my opinion the video is documenting an event that could quickly turn into an act of animal cruelty.

Considering how many warnings are given to humans before they use a treadmill, cats on treadmills, especially with long fur, could go very, very wrong.

The concept is cute, and I would have felt better if the owners had not so sharply increased the speed, but overall, I would encourage others to not recreate the stunt at home :/

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:55 PM

..."Sparky", eh?

 |  May 10, 2008 at 01:58 PM

Too funny!!!

Hmmmm, all of us (me and 4-leggeddy ones) could use this!!!!!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:01 PM

I wish I had these kitties motivation to get on my own treadmill. Does laughing as you watch the cats count as exercise?

My tubby tabby could use this. So could my little Buddy boy with the Buda-Belly.

lmao the grey one seems to be genuinely enjoying it! That's adorable! And the poofy one actually running on it... soooo cute!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:12 PM

Cute, but I'm with Lydia...I was reel skeered their tails would get caught!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:16 PM

Why did you feel the need??? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy???????? "Cruelty"???? Jeebus! Everything's fine. Let it be!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:16 PM

I wonder how they discovered that the cats would do that?

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:18 PM

I shouldn't laugh but hahahahahahahahahaha, very funny :-)

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:23 PM

Sparky must have some pretty good forearms! Probably needs some glute action now!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:28 PM

I laughed so hard when the calico gave up and plopped off the end...

If that counted as cruelty, when the cats got on of their own accord, then it must be cruel to let a cat outside too. Think of all those sharp edges! Oh noes!!

[Well, that might not be the best example... though more because of the cars & wild predators... - Ed.]

Wish I could get my fat cat on that. She needs to loose four pounds according to the vet!

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:52 PM


I bet the camera gal was doing her treadmill walk one day, dutiful and bored, and suddenly, with a mighty *ankletwine*, she had company.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:54 PM

A treadmill isn't 'cruelty' any more than owning a rocking chair is cruelty. Sure you can rock over a cats tail, but usually do it once on accident, and they don't go near it again. These cats have obviously been around the treadmill for awhile and know not to stick their paws under it. The tabby even seems to have a determined excerise plan going on.

 |  May 10, 2008 at 02:59 PM

There's a link to a "cat wheel" that appears after you watch the kitty on the treadmill. It's hilarious.

There are a bunch of treadmill kitty videos on youtube. I don't get the attraction to it...I really don't... :P

 |  May 10, 2008 at 03:04 PM

"Jaaane, stop this crazy thiiing!!!"
