An Exercise Program that’s Purrfect for Cat Lovers is Cat-Ching On — 16 Comments

  1. I agree with Ruth about how sick people are in the head and this only encourages abuse. I don’t mean to brag but I believe my cats for the most part are not over weight. They spend lots of time chasing each other around the 2 story house. I should also add it is not because they are friends. They pick out the weakest and go for it. I would say on a rough guess the heaviest is a Maine coon mix of some kind and she only weighs about 10 pounds. The rest of the (normal) cats hit the scale at about 8.6 to 8.7 pounds.I have had them weighed recently at the vets. I don’t think any of my cats would go along with that kind of “exercise” but I love the fact that it can be done with the “right” easy going cats.

  2. Although that particular cat seems happy enough being used as weights I must agree with Dee in that I don’t like seeing cats used that way.
    This is why… because that video is public and idiots seeing it might think it’s OK to roughly handle a cat, not in a controlled manner like that man in the video but by throwing the cat up and about and catching him.
    It doesn’t take much to plant an idea in a person with few humane brain cells and cats are an easy target for people like that.
    YouTube is a dangerous place for cats!

  3. Oh, he’s pumpin’ kitty. I thought he might have a new trainer who was teaching him curtain climbing or long distance furniture jumps, or perhaps some of those stretches only cats can do…

  4. What a cute video. You can tell the man has a very unique relationship with his kitties. If that had been me, I would have been scratched into a blood bath. LOL

  5. This guy’s very funny! I’ve been addicted to working out for most of my life, so I have my equipment here at home and I designed my 40-minute workout, which I do 4-5 times a week. Since it involves weightlifting, I can’t have cats too close! but sometimes they do like to chill on my weight bench. Our big ebony prince Calo used to love doing this, and since he was a very muscular and shining example of feline perfection, one of his nicknames was “the bullcat” because his front legs were sort of bowed-looking, like a bulldog’s, and he had a very powerful appearance and persona. We miss our Calo man <3

  6. Dee-

    I experimented and tried some of these with Dr. Hush Puppy. He purred and purred and was really upset when I stopped. He thought it was so much fun. Obviously if a kitty protests it’s not for them but some kitties really enjoy it. Cory really loves his kitties and wouldn’t harm them in any way. πŸ™‚ But I totally understand people’s concern.

  7. Interesting and entertaining, but I’m not crazy about jostling any cat around like that. The cat is either very trusting or just compliant. It’s obvious that they have a unique relationship though.
    Damon would puke all over me, and Scooter would rip me into shreds if I started any of that.

  8. If you watch some of his other videos you see he is 100% cat person πŸ™‚

    I liked the exercise routine. Lilly would love it if I threw her around a bit like that.

    If you watch another one of his watch β€˜When Sparta Met Loki” – it’s simple and really nice and well made.

    • Oh cool Marc ill have to have a look. Sounds fun. Great to see another Male Cat Person πŸ™‚ Yea i reckon Lilly would love it, would Gigi like that? Yep its awesome and very good love the exercise its like hes involving the cat in the exercising. πŸ™‚

  9. Yea funny but i guess its true such an important role to make sure our cats live as long as possible. Yes exercising our cat very important from playing with them. Been playing a lot with jasmine with laser light, and the others love it too. I dont know how a harness would go. But i guess even just a walk outside to the gate and around the garden which they often like to do.

  10. Neat video. You can tell he has a very close relationship with his cats. On the tricky subject of humans exercising I have to declare that my rowing machine is broken πŸ˜‰ LOL. I have been using it too vigourously. That is my excuse.

    It is actually true, it is broken but I don’t think it’s because I’ve been overusing it although I do use it quite a lot because us older people do need to use our bodies and our brains to keep us alive and functioning properly.

    It is probably the most important thing we can do. To be relatively active without overdoing it and use our brains because the brain needs exercising as well. A good walk ticks many boxes. Exercising with your cat is a great idea.

    • I think the best exercise possible which is relaxing well I find it is. Is walking and swimming. I know its prob not for everyone, but its just great esp in the fresh air but i guess its harder for people in Cities.
