Male Model Likes to Work Out With His Cat

By Robert Paul Reyes

"In the endless quest to make working out fun, one man believes he`s found the answer: working out with a cat.

Now, to be clear, we are all for working out alongside your cat. Doing yoga while your cat watches and judges you " great. Going for a walk while your cat begrudgingly walks beside you on a lead " marvellous.

But working out with your cat " as in using your cat as a tool with which to exercise " is madness.

That`s what model Travis DesLaurier (AKA TravBeachBoy) likes to do. And we guarantee his cat will never forgive him for this disrespectful behaviour."


Being a macho man and being a cat person aren`t mutually exclusive, I`m not going to turn in my "man card" because I pamper my adorable fat kitties.

Whenever a rapper, wrestler, football player or any other stereotypically macho dude comes out as a cat person, I email the article to my friends, as proof that I am as manly as they come, even though I own two cats.

But now this British tabloid has published an article about an effeminate-looking male model who works out with his cat. I give up, maybe I do need to turn in my "man card", but what the hell, I love my cats.
