I liked the part where there was a treadmill.

Too bad I didn't have a video camera at most of my old jobs or you'd be able to add "foop on a treadmill". Well, all but that one job where I had to push a giant stone up a hill and it kept rolling back. Now THAT was job security.

I liked all of these better than that OK Go video.

Or even "Chariots" without an apostrophe. Bats on treadmills don't really care about grammar anyway. They're wholly focused on the finish line.

The cats vs. treadmill one was awesome

EVEN THE CREATURES OF THE SEA AND AIR ARE NOT IMMUNE TO THE EARTHLY TEMPTATIONS OF THE TREADMILL. This is a great post, thanks.

Now that kicks a SLYT's ass around the block. Or around the tread.

Why are there so many "cat on treadmill" videos? Those little dudes sure do seem to enjoy indoor jogging.

(I have no idea how these people got their cats jogging on treadmills, or why.)

So assuming the treadmill is going the same speed as the cat, would the cat be able to take off?



Do we need a longer treadmill to test our hypothesis? Or a longer cat?

Two corgis on a treadmill.

i think the first cat one is the most sysyphean. The barky little dog seemed to have something going for him, but he couldn't sustain.

The shrimp does not like Benny Hill. The shrimp is a Curtis Mayfield fan.

Toccata and fugue in d minor wouldn't be my choice for the bat on a treadmill. I guess they thought it sounded spooky.

NOBODY KNEW VAMPIRE BATS COULD RUN....jesus, it's definitely bedtime. I loved the shrimp and the cats vs. treadmill. I can't believe I'm about to type this, but thank you, evilspork, for gathering a bunch of videos of animals on treadmills. I feel enlightened... yet I learned nothing tonight. YES!!!

Cats are better than dogs. Especially on treadmills. There, I've said it.

The best part of that cats vs treadmill video was around 1:25 when the other cat batted the black & white cat instead of the treadmill, making the poor paranoid kitteh jump straight up into the air.

I think we should breed gigantic vampire bats to draw carts for us. Because that is a plan that could never go wrong.

What can't Yakety-Sax make better, anyway?

Today I learned that shrimp can run. Awesome.

Gecko on a vertical treadmill. You'll have to go to 14:49, couldn't find a video link for just the relevant bit.

What interests me with the cats is when they are half on the treadmill. Their front legs walk, their back legs do not walk, and the cats don't seem to notice. Don't get me wrong, I love cats, but a lot of their behavior is automatic. I have to wonder how much of their cute "personalities" are just ... bundles of interacting reflexes that seem like cat personality. Meanwhile, their hind legs and front legs aren't really coordinating on the "are we walking or not?" deal.

Just look at the black and white cat who does the "paw slam" bit. "It's moving, it's small, therefore I will deliver a stunning blow." It does this again and again, attacking small bits of texture on a rubber belt. And what a blow it is — listen to how loud those strikes are. Those are not exploratory pawings.

Kitties: adorable, probably not as smart as we give them credit for. BUT STILL ADORABLE!

As my tortoise has been getting bigger, I've been trying to come up new and inventive ways of tormenting exercising him.

A treadmill was high on my list.

Now it would seem that this too has already been done.

I'll bet no one has trained their tortoise for a triathlon, though!

I'm not sure how the cycling event would work.

Cat, cat, cat in a trash bin.

I wonder how long it will take to identify this woman.

It takes less than a day. Police/RSPCA aren't releasing names.
