It is now possible to buy a treadmill for your cat

Posted on Wednesday, 9 January, 2019 | Comment icon 16 comments

Would your cat run on one of these ? Image Credit: YouTube / ChiiChii Bro / Pet Ding
Korean company Pet Ding has designed and built a circular treadmill intended to help your cat exercise.
Known as the Little Cat smart treadmill, the unorthodox invention was showcased to bemused audiences at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

To help motivate your cat to actually run on the device, a series of LEDs have been fitted for the animal to chase. You can also control the lights manually using a smartphone app.

The treadmill will even operate on its own so that your cat can please itself when it goes for a jog.

According to Pet Ding, an overweight cat can lose as much as 3kg by using the device.

With a price tag of $1,700 however, it's unclear how many cat owners are likely to pick one up.

For about 5-10 bucks you can buy a laser pointer and get your cat to run up and down a hallway everyday. I've been doing that for years, lol.

or a laser dot. when we come back from weekend away our cat runs towards us, rubs his head against our legs and purrs. but usually he minds his own business.† he does come like a dog when called but not everytime.

We used to have our pitbulls and American Bulldogs jog on the treadmill all the time. A tired pet is a happy pet!

they are trainable, just not as much or as many as dogs, i bet that cat trainer tried many cats before he found one that he can train. yea they love boxes,† or bags, or anything they can get into.† if you want to put a cat in a bag, do not bother doing it yourself, leave a bag on the floor, and a cat will get in by itself, mine does it every time i put a laundry bag on the floor, and it does not have to be empty.

As someone who has invented a great selling exercise cat toy selling for five bucks, I'm getting a kick out of this.† Hank

funny thing is there already is a Cat treadmill. Its even been featured on Tested the Adam Savage youtube.. Its called one Fast cat..† Ill let you search it out if you like but its a fraction of the cost (getting one for my cats soon) and Brilliant idea of the laser pointer shining on it.† Like that thinking I have 3 cats (yes call me crazy) and they need more exercise. So Im going to get one and if I remember this post Ill send a video clip of each trying it out. Im not affiliated with them I think its a great idea but I feel a tiny bit of re engineering is needed. Was going to 3d print my ow... [More]
