I was transferring photos and videos from my phone to my computer this morning when I came across this video I took in early January. It was right after the new Roomba vacuum cleaner that my wife ordered arrived.

Chris Vs. Vacuum
I was vacuuming the other day and Chris would just not get out of the way. I tried pushing the vacuum into him to no avail. I had to stop filming and pick him up so I could finish the job.
Most cats are afraid of the vacuum but here, only Floki hides on cleaning day. How do your pets feel about the vacuum?
Stubborn Cat Chris
Chris has always been a stubborn cat. It has always been an impossible challenge to get Chris to behave in a way that we want him to behave. Usually the problem is trying to get him to stop doing something but sometimes getting him to do something can be equally difficult. Like the other day when I was trying to vacuum and he refused to move from his spot. Most cats are afraid of the vacuum but Chris is much more concerned with hanging out near his food bowl (which I picked up before vacuuming).
Who else has a stubborn cat? Or should I ask who doesn’t have a stubborn cat? I don’t think dogs are as stubborn as cats but I’m sure they are out there too.

These Are Not Pussy Cats
Every time I clean the house, I can’t help being amazed at Chris and Frankie’s total lack of fear of the vacuum cleaner. I have shared videos like this in the past but, at the risk of beating a dead horse, I would like to share one more.
Who’s Afraid of the Vacuum?
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.
Chris Won’t Back Down… From the Vacuum
Just thought I would show you another video that shows how different Chris is from other cats. Most cats run and hide when you get the vacuum cleaner out. Not Chris; he just watches, probably thinking how lucky he is that he doesn’t have to clean up cat hair.
