Who’s Afraid of the Vacuum?

I don’t know why but Frankie and Chris are not bothered by the vacuum. Puck, on the other hand, hides under the bed at the mere sight of the vacuum cleaner. That is difficult to understand since Puck was exposed to vacuums as a very young kitten.

Bad Cat Chris

I used to think that all cats were afraid of the vacuum, I even created a design related to that (see here). Sure, Chris was not afraid, but Chris has never been an ordinary cat. Last year I posted a video of Chris ignoring me while I vacuumed around him. At the time I thought it was impressive because cats run and hide when the see the vacuum cleaner. Don’t they? I’m not so sure anymore.

Recently I was vacuuming the patio and both Chris and Frankie seemed completely oblivious to the noisy vacuuming going on around them.

Where was Puck while this was going on? Under the bed. Maybe it’s a gold cat thing.

    Sam hated the vacuum until he became hard of hearing then he just sat there and watched it. I think he was grateful that all of a sudden the thing made no noise (haha).

    Oh dear. I admit it. I have to raise my hoof. That creature is scary. I usually squeal and run to my room when I see that monster come out. In fact, I think it’s one of the reasons mom/dad put hardwood down in most of the house. I think they may be scared of it too. XOXO – Bacon

        I know! You should hear my mom fussing about sweeping. Oh dear – it’s hilarious at times. I need to video tape her one day for sure. XOXO – Bacon
