Let’s face it, no one actually likes the treadmill - but sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do. Well, this cheeky kitty has absolutely no time for that nonsense!

Committing to exercise is no easy feat. While some people are natural gym-goers, the majority of us literally have to drag ourselves there.
And this chubby kitty totally seems to relate.
Not so cathletic!
Laila, a slightly overweight feline, definitely needed some exercise. Thankfully, her owner Lee could totally see that - which is why she’s been trying to get Laila to do some walking via a treadmill. Genius idea, huh?
Well, not really. As you’ll see in the video, despite Lee’s best efforts, Laila just ain’t having it. Lee encourages Laila to take a little stroll, but the humongous feline immediately falls on her back as if she were dead.
“Yep. I iz dead. Can’t exercise if dead. Sori bye bye.”
Furtanely, Laila is making progress
Speaking to Metro, Lee explained: ‘Laila was a normal-sized kitten until after we moved here to Gainesville and she was spayed. She started gaining weight rapidly and stopped jumping on things.'
‘More than a year full of vet trips and tests, we were struggling to figure out how she could be gaining a pound a month on a strict diet. We have had every test you can think of and nothing is medically wrong with her.’
‘Finally we began exercising her, she’s on a strict diet and walks with her dad once a day. She also goes to Fat Camp on Wednesdays at the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine.’
So, it looks like Laila is well on the way to a healthier future -but it definitely won't include treadmills!
