  Exercise is important for our animal companions. It can help keep them healthy, prevent destructive behavior, and provide a fun way for them to bond with their humans. However, one adorable cat is taking her workout routine to the next level. 


She really reached back through her right taws #weirdgirl #cats #cutecats #pilates #catowner #schwiiz

  In a TikTok video posted to the account @goodkarinaa, Ella the cat can be seen lying alongside a workout mat as her human does Pilates. Amazingly, Ella seems to be doing a Pilates routine of her own. Viewers have fallen in love with the video, which has been liked over 56,000 times. One comment offered an explanation for Ella’s behavior. “Cats love to copy their Guardians because it makes them feel closer to them” wrote Whether or not that is true, it is clear that Ella loves being her human’s workout buddy!
