Treadmill?

First, my humans brought that Christmas tree into the house. It was small, and it has lots of cool things hanging from it, so that's fine.

Now, however, they've brought this large, noisy machine into the house. They call it a "treadmill". It makes a lot of noise, and has a floor that moves! My silly humans get on it and start running. But they're going nowhere! Humans are very odd!

This "treadmill" smells very odd. I still can't figure out why my humans want to run in place, but go nowhere. They say they're training for something called a "marathon" and when winter comes, and there's lots of ice, it's too dangerous to run outside.

My humans don't want me playing with them when they're on the "treadmill". That's just silly. Do your humans have any large, noisy machines like this?

Why would beans want to walk or run when they could be curled up having a snooze? They are strange creatures sometimes

Nope, silly peep goes outside in Edmonton Alberta Canada in the middle of winter and runs and runs and runs. Crazee. There's nuthin chasin her. Come visit when you get a chance.

Oh it looks like the treadmill we just got! I wonder if we live in the same house and just haven't met yet?
