I went on the treadmill yesterday! To anticipate any jokers out there (you know who you are): Yes, I did turn it on and yes, I did walk on it.
It must've been quite some time since I'd last been on it. I say that bc Miles & Lizzie, the kittens who joined our home last fall, didn't know what to make of the treadmill when actually used qua treadmill. They've been all over it as a stationary object, but not when it was moving and making noise! Lizzie stayed far away the whole time, keeping an eye on the noisy, moving beast of a thing. I thought I had a picture of her exhibiting her watchful gaze, but, alas, my battery died just then. Miles, OTOH, stuck his nose and hands all over the thing. By the end of my time on the treadmill, he was at the end of it, where the tread sort of rolls off, trying to keep up with it with just his hands. I wasn't going very fast for a person, but too fast for a little kitty to keep up. I expect that sometime when I've just started the thing up and am warming up that he'll get all four limbs up there and take a stroll w/me.
Of course, now that we have a kitty stroller, we could take walks outside! Today seems like a nice day and I'm certainly not going to go on the treadmill two days in a row (let's not go crazy), so maybe we will do just that. If we do, I assure you that there will be pictures.
