Cat attempts sit-ups, fails adorably

This scene may look familiar to those implementing an exercise program for the new year.

A video from China showing a cat performing what looks like sit-ups has quickly gone viral.

The cat gives it a few good tries, then rolls over in defeat.

The cat is probably just grooming itself, but it wouldn’t be the first time a cat was caught on camera in sit-up form. In 2011, a cat named Wilbur had his 15 minutes of fame after a photo of his “exercise routine” went viral on YouTube.
