I've no idea if this link to the Youtube Super cute cat with hoover link will work but I hope it does. If not you can find it if you google Super cute cat with hoover. I saw this when I was reading the paper online and thought it was so funny, especially when the cat slaps the hoover after his chin gets too close and is sucked a little too hard.
I cannot imagine any scenario where Magic or Red would even contemplate this as neither of them are keen on hoovers. The current pet hair upright is effective but very noisy so I dont blame them.
Magic will tolerate the robot hoover and will to stand in its path defiantly with her back to it. Luckily the sensor bar is very gentle and it turns and retreats which suits Magic fine as she 'wins' every time. However, Red just considers all floor cleaning devices to be the work of the devil. He just vaporises now when cleaning is taking place, but in days gone by when he was a braver little puss he did stick around, albeit from a perch to watch the strange non-furry pet. This was the first time he had seen it in action from a couple of years ago in our last house.
