Chonky Cat Goes Viral For Being Annoyed By Underwater Workout

ADVERTISEMENT

A fat cat named Cinderblock recently went viral for her lack of enthusiasm for working out. On October 19, Northshore Veterinary Hospital in Bellingham, Washington shared a video of an extremely cute but morbidly overweight cat using one paw to move on a treadmill, which is a part of her weight loss regimen. The video instantly became insanely popular, with over 10 million views and almost 500k people liking it on Twitter.

As Cinderblock is struggling with her weight, the chonky feline was taken to a vet and placed on a weight reduction program. The program includes a healthy cat diet, all sorts of exercises, and underwater treadmill, but this kitty used the least amount of effort to exercise.

Since the first video of Cinderblock was posted, the gray cat has become an internet celebrity. Since then, the veterinary hospital has periodically updated people on Cinderblock’s progress. Thousands of people loved the hilarious first video in which the chubby cat is seen sitting on the edge of the treadmill and using just one paw to move it. “You working out?” a veterinarian can be heard asking in the background of the video.

“Maybe Cinderblock can be an inspiration for us all to get in a little better shape,” an internet user under the username Bladelink wondered about the adorable cat.

“This fabulously cute cat is obese, and it is affecting her quality of life. We are helping her achieve weight loss through a prescription diet and exercise. She is not on board with the exercise,” the video was captioned.

And numerous people are following the updates on her weight loss journey

The caption below the video said: “By scattering the kibble, we encouraged her to move around the room. This does also increase her exercise albeit not dramatically. Every little bit helps.”

“Cinder on the move!”

Many were cheering her up – “In this house, we cheer on Cinderblock, you got this [baby], do that workout.” Another commented: “Cinderblock has inspired me to be my best self. We shall get into shape together, one minute, one moment, one day at a time.” Many people also found Cinderblock’s lack of enthusiasm relatable.

I have a fat cat, but apparently don't have the marketing experience necessary to turn her into an internet sensation. Some cats are just chunky no matter what you do. Mine has a brother from the same litter who eats and exercises exactly the same as his rotund sister, but is half the weight. Genetics; a blessing and a curse.

This cat is so fat even just walking a few steps make her so tired she has to lie down again. That's not genetics that's severe overfeeding!

So does mine! At first we were worried about the weight changes and took him to the vet several times, but it turns out he just does that every year (he's 8 now).
