Yes, water treadmills are for rehab purposes. Just because the cat hated it does not make it cruelty, since I'm sure the cat will be better off in the long run.
Here`s the quote from the person`s video that this was cut from, found by Googling "water treadmill": "My kitty - Lionel was born with dislocated knee caps. He had surgery that did not help he could not walk so the vet-surgeon suggested another surgery followed by water physical therapy. Of course he does not like it no one LIKES physical therapy but it worked!! I am happy to report that Lionel is now a happy, playful, loving cat that can scurry around and play with his sister."
