Wordless Wednesday – An Exercise Routine for Cat Fitness by Harley


Step 1 – Put head down and assume comfortable nap position. Remain in comfortable nap position for five full hours.


Step 2 – Lift Head for approximately 7 seconds. If this appears to be too strenuous, lift head for only 3 seconds until enough tolerance is built up for the full 7 second routine that is the ultimate goal.


Step 3 – Drop head back down into full comfortable nap mode for another 3 hours or until called for dinner.

I don’t know about you, but I feel completely invigorated from that stimulating workout that Harley shared with all of us! That is my kind exercise routine and one that I can relate too! Happy Wednesday all – hope I didn’t wear you all out too much with today’s graphic images!

    How ironic, my exercise routine is very similar to Harley’s — it’s just not as an intensive workout! I mean, it takes a real athlete to hold that position for 5hours. I am round shaped too so I must be doing my workout just right!

    Harley is holding his own with his competition: Jillian Michael, Richard Simmons…….

    Thanks for the inspiration, Harley! Let us know when the workout video is available!

  2. I think I need a nap now… It is late already!

  3. I think Cody is following Harley’s exercise regime. For that matter, I am too lol

    Wow Harley, you’ve got that exercise down to a science. How often do you need to do that routine to keep so physically fit? Once or twice a week? Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

    to live for; you’re one smart kitty….I applaud your routine and I think you should ask your dad to video
    this, it would totally be a best seller…I can see you now on the red carpet at the academy awards !!

    hugs from dai$y =^..*= and the boys ~~~~~~~~~

  6. Mom Paula says that’s her kind of exercise.

  7. Sue Brandes says:

    That is some workout. I could use a nap too.

  8. Bernadette says:

    Whew! I’m exhausted!

    What amazes me is they can awaken from eight hours of sleeping in the same position, and one quick stretch and they can race around the house and climb two cat trees. I’d still be trying to restart my circulation, and feel like I had a bedsore! Harley is lovely to look at–love those torbies!

    I agree with Katherine….”How ironic, my exercise routine is very similar to Harley’s”…just wish I could look that fabulous while working out!

  10. That’s a great routine – it’s a lot like ours! We hope you had a happy Wednesday. Purrs, Ateret, Livia and Abbi.

    Now THAT is the kind of exercise routine EVERYONE can get into. 🙂

  12. Yep, that’s pretty much our exercise routine too. 🙂

  13. Fisher says:

    Scooter has a slight variation – she sleeps on her back. Instead of raising her head, she will roll over on one side or the other.

  14. RumpyDog! says:

    Work it kitty!!! woo woo woo!

  15. My cat also loves that kind of fitness exercise. Actually, he spends a lot of time during step 3. Anyway, I love your blog. I will definitely nominate you! 🙂
