I'm not sure what would bother me most if I were Cinderblock: the harness and leash, the water (what's the purpose of an inch of water?), the treadmill, or the camera? She needs a diet for sure, but otherwise she's got a lot to complain about.

How cruel. There are better ways to achieve the same end of a healthy weight for that cat.

I wonder if they made the video to be funny and aren’t really doing that everyday. One can hope I guess.

The vet is acclimating her to the water. They plan to raise it so that it supports her while she works out. She cannot walk more than a couple of feet on her own right now due to her weight and joint issues.

A diet is better for the cat. Not this.

Cinderblock looks afraid --- there are better ways to help the cat.
