In the grand and illustrious panoply of things that cats are meant to be afraid of, the vacuum cleaner holds an esteemed position. What usually fearless feline doesn’t freak out and hurry to a safe haven at the sound of even a dinky Dustbuster starting up? Well, apparently these cats of the Internet, that’s who.
Yep, here’s a beguiling selection of videos of cats who actually enjoying the deep cleaning joys of a trusty vacuum cleaner. Don’t judge them — just enjoy.
When the startled-looking Bobo first perks up his ears at the sound of the vacuum cleaner being turned on, you suspect he’s about to bolt for a safe hiding place. Nope! This tabby instead assumes a docile posture and enjoys what appears to be a super-powered tummy massage.
Is it wrong to think that you could safely play shuffleboard with this freshly vacuumed kitty?
This portly all-white beauty likes to flit between enjoying the succulent suction of a vacuum and attacking it like a deathly nemesis.
“As soon as she hears the vacuum cleaner, Kitty comes running down the stairs,” teases the caption to this video of a 21-year-old, grey-haired kitty enjoying a tryst with a vacuum cleaner. Sure enough, the cat duly takes up a righteous position on the living room rug and enjoys a well-deserved deep cleanse.
Extra points here for taking up a convenient position on the stairs. A classy situation all around.
Of course, the only proper way to pamper a long-haired lovely is with the vacuum!
