For quite some time now, an overweight cat named Holly has been making regular visits to a pool at the Olde Towne Pet Resort in Dulles, Virginia.

Her goal is to shed some of the excess weight and get back in shape. Thus, this cat presently weighs about 18 pounds (about 8.2 kilograms), and also happens to be 13 years old.

Therefore, it is not difficult to guess that its being a tad slimmer would significantly improve on its ability to enjoy life.

Interestingly enough, the cat's owner works at the Olde Pet Resort, and says that she only decided to make Holly go for a swim because she noticed that this feline did not really have any issues when it came to taking a bath, sources report.

“It was more an experiment than anything. Dani Lawhorne (the cat's owner) saw that the cat didn't get too upset when she gave it baths, so she thought, 'I wonder what would happen if I threw her behind in the pool?'” said Olde Towne publicist Mayra Ruiz-McPherson.

Hopefully, Holly will keep up the good work and continue losing weight.
