I learned this lesson the hard way. Most of the time I like to be vacuumed with the attachment. I can't hear the scary noises that send most cats running for their lives. But vacuums do suck, and they suck hard. I learned this when the vacuum grabbed my tail and sucked it up inside. I think the neighbors heard me screaming. Mommy turned off the machine as soon as she could. I meanwhile ran away, wondering what had just happened to the gorgeous plummage that used to reside on the end of my tail. For a couple of inches it was all gone! Al that remained was this pink, ratlike tail with no hair. I was bald with just a little tuft of hair on the very, very end. Mommy felt really bad. She thought she could just nudge me out of the way so that I would move. After all, I don't run in fear like other cats, I need some coaxing. You would think that I would be terrified of vacuums to this very day, but I'm really not. My hair grew back and I hardly ever think about the incident. I was lucky, no bones got broken I just got a little....haircut.
