I had mixed feelings about showing today’s Sunday Catinee video because I don’t want you to think I am endorsing this type of human behavior. Also, my human, who is sort of a fitness freak, has actually tried some of these moves with me (even before the appearance of this video!), and I can tell you firsthand that not every kitty enjoys this type of thing. But it does feature a couple of my favorite video stars, Shorty and Kodi, and they don’t seem to mind it, so here is a workout… with kitties.
If you can’t see the above video, click here to watch it on YouTube!
Just tell your humans not to try this at home!
You mean those things MOVE? Ours stays purrfectly still.
So did you suggest to your mum with Claws that yours ought to stay still too???
Spitty the Kitty says
Gosh, Sparkle, I can’t believe I had actually seen one of your Sunday Catinee movies before you posted it! I must be getting to be more cutting-edge than I used to be! I was ridiculously proud of myself ha ha ha!!!

Hmmm…. I think I’m gettin’ motion sickness just thinkin’ about it. purrs

ps: But Harley WOULD make a good dumbbell.
Daisy the Curly Cat says
Hmmm, I am not sure I could be curled one-handed!
Dash Kitten says
Mum DID laugh. I reckon the cats are very relaxed. I would kill Dad if he tried this so the cats are obviously cool and it and it is MEANT TO BE FUN.
It is hard these days to get people to realise that the cat would have given him ‘the paw’ if it was not happy AND all the clips are very short as if the cat didn’t hang around long – right?!

Rupert is all up in Mommy’s stuff when she does floor work! She uses him as a barbell.
Sherlock Ash and Traveler says
That is the coolest video I’ve ever seen!
Mark's Mews says
I would love ta see TBT try THAT with Iza an Marley! Im pretty sure he cant bench press two 12 lb cats… ~ Ayla
If my mum even thinks about trying that, she will pay dearly for it.
I saw this on facebook and didn’t think it was cool, however the kitties don’t look as though they mind!!
Madi and Mom says
So Sparkle have you prepared a proper home coming for your Mom? For instance a strategically placed hair ball?
Hugs Madi your BFFF
Baby Tali says
That is cool is them kettehs like it..but I do not want to try it!!! 🙄
prancer pie says
HahahahaMeow! Obviously they trust him, because they are so limp!
I like to jump on my mum’s back when she’s doing yoga but I don’t stay on that long.
I’ve used my three for press ups, but they are too light for two arms and I am not quite strong enough to use them with one arm. And they didn’t mind too much hehe
We’d seen this before but it still gives us paws, we mean pause! We like to “help” Mom with her PT exercises, but no way are we going to let her use any of us like this. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
Hannah and Lucy says
Thank goodness Mum hasn’t seen this – we think we’d need danger money!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
I love it! Hey, I help MomKatt w/her ab work by rubbing all over her while she’s lying on the floor & helpless so she starts giggles and totally RUINS her form! MOL
I know sabotage! I should work for a spy agency or something!
Our Person probably couldn’t do that. She would just drop us. LOL Hope the Mom had a good time at Blog Paws and brought you lots of goodies.
The Paw Relations says
MOL! We liked that video. No fear our humans will do this with us. They never exercise.
Toby & Leia says
Oh wow. They look very accepting of their hoomin’s odd behavior. Very gracious felines, we think.
Spunky Doodle and Manny says
We love that video–looks like fun except for the holding part. We sometimes help motivate our mom to exercise just by walking nearby while she’s doing it so when she sits up or bends down, she can pet us as she works out. Even the dog helps sometimes! We like the bond this guy in the video has with his cats, very cool!
Ha! I would try that but my Dad would not!
The Kitties of Purring Pines says
Our mommy’s a gym rat. She doesn’t need any more ideas!
