My cats like jumping on the treadmill, waiting until it flings them off, then jumping back on. So if the treadmill goes on, I have to put the cats in another hallways or room! It's cute when they do it though :0)

Um, I don't have any pets, but do young kids count? I have a 3yo son, and a daughter who turns 2 in less than 2 months, and I cannot clean, or exercise while they are awake, they are both afraid of the vacuum, try to "help" me sweep, and will walk all over freshly mopped floors. Oh, and they unfold laundry quicker than I can fold it.

Exercising is the same thing, they both steal my weights, climb all over me while I attempt mat work, and have to be within a 2ft radius of me while doing cardio (which has ended in them getting knocked over more than once).

They also have mommy radar, meaning that if I try to get up early to exercise, or clean or work out during their nap, they wake up, and refuse to go back to sleep. The mommy radar works for anything though, like bubble baths or movie nights. As a matter of fact, I am typing this whole thing left handed on my laptop, sitting on the recliner, with both of the munchkins in my lap squirming!

Peace, Rachel

My dog Maizy does the same thing! Every time I pull out a broom or mop she freaks out and won't stop barking lol! You can imagine what cleaning day is like in my house...music and a barking dog lol!

Another funny thing she does is when I'm getting my gym cloths on and ready for my work out. By the time I put my shoes on she freaks out in excitement and thinks she's going for a walk. I feel terrible when I leave the house to get my workout for the day, but I always make it up to her when I come home by taking her for a walk.

I love animals...they make life more interesting!

I have a kitten who fights me on to the Wii balance board and bites my feet and arms when I'm doing crunches!! She also likes to take running jumps at me when I'm dancing around!

Ohhh yes, those pesky pets! If our Yorkie sees me on the ground, he's right there with me. He likes to do yoga. While I'm holding a plank or doing the cobra, he rolls on his back under my face, lol. Corpse pose, he sits on my stomach and tries to lick my face.

oh yeah.. I have a 20 pound cat that tries to sit on me when I'm doing reverse crunches or bridges. When I'm doing cardio, he tries to sit on my feet.

Okay so I had used the fact that I would have to take him out for walks as my excuse for adopting our puppy Rasskull. I now go on 2 longer walks and several short walks every day and on the weekends we take him to the park, hiking and other activities were I have fun and burn even more calories.

Here is were it backfires. I am a neat freak, diagnosed CDO (OCD just in order). Well Rasskull has appointed himself as my big bad protector. He protects me from the mean vacuum, the evil broom, the wicked dust cloth and all the other cleaning products. He has no problem with me doing push-ups and sit-ups and will even try to help me but if I try to pick up a weight, resistance band or yoga mat he is not happy and will bark at it and try to take it away. He loves to dance with me when I turn on music but he has 4 left feet so instead of dancing I am tripping and falling.

Anyone else have a cute pet making their life more fun and interesting?
