Unless you are a sloth, you are unlikely to want to associate with one, because there is nothing attractive or endearing about the animal or a human who is slothful. Who would want to have a reputation for being a sloth or a sluggard?
A sloth is a slow moving mammal that lives in the tropical forests of Central and South America. They spend most of their time sleeping while sprawled on a branch of a tree.
Laziness is equated with slothfulness and indolence. A sluggard is a habitually lazy person; one who is sluggish. Who would want to resemble a slug?
