Everyone knows that diet and exercise are the key to losing weight, so when a cat named Charlie ballooned to double his normal weight, his owner decided to step in and help correct this problem.

After indulging too much in diet cat food that failed to reduce his weight, Charlie then expected to lounge around the house doing nothing, like many people. That’s when Charlie’s owners decided to take him swimming.

The regular swimming exercise has helped Charlie lose weight and stay fit at the same time, which is the same benefit humans can get as well. Perhaps Charlie could run a fitness class and teach humans how to get in shape as well.
