Cat Walks on Treadmill Underwater
Vets take in cat whose owner died and change it's life!
Does it get more heartwarming than this? When Buddha the cat's owner sadly passed away - the people that work at The Cat Shoppe in Nashville, Tennesee, felt so bad for it that they took it in and cared for it as their own.
Well that's pretty cute. BUT IT DOESN'T END THERE.
They also cared for it's health so much that they put it on a kitty exercise regime, which involves this water treadmill.
Buddha used to be the weight of two healthy cats, but has been eating healthy and working out 21 minutes a day on this treadmill and has lost 5 pounds (2.26 kilos) to date. Remember this is a tiny cat, so that's pretty good - Michelle Bridges would be proud!
"On Buddha's 6th visit to Animalia in Franklin, TN he is getting even more comfortable with the water treadmill experience. He's up to 21 minutes a day (7 minutes at a time)," they said.
"The treatments have helped him become more toned and have helped him go from 31.4 pounds on Aug. 6th, to 28 pounds. His diet and exercise are closely monitored by the professionals at Animalia and the staff at the Cat Shoppe and Dog Store."
Would you put your cat on a treadmill if it got too fat?
