Occasionally the Internet exists for communication purposes when it’s not serving its true purpose: a platform on which to spread masterpiece cat videos, and this latest, greatest viral video of Cinderblock the Cat stands out.
Cinderblock, a cat on the more voluptuous side of the cat size range clocks in at 25 pounds, but is on a “weight loss journey,” per Northshore Veterinary Hospital in Bellingham, Washington, which recently shared her progress with the world.
That should explain why she uses just one valiant paw to move her way on a treadmill for her first time on the machine. Exercising the minimum quantity of effort is a lifestyle, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s already an aspirational celebrity. Over the weekend, she became the toast of Reddit where people are ravenous for updates.
