Many people are obese, so it’s not a surprise that many pets are also obese because their owners feed them too much. Since the simplest way to lose weight involves diet and exercise, a 17-pound cat named George spends six minutes on an underwater treadmill, three times a week.

Jogging underwater increases the level of resistance, helping George lose weight and tone up more quickly. The cat, who is also on a strict diet, should be at his target weight in five to six months.

If an obese cat can lose weight through regular exercise, then anyone can mimic his actions and do the same for their own life. By getting in shape, you’ll not only have more energy, but you’ll increase your chances of living a long and happy life as well, even if you are just a cat.
