Terrorizing Your Cat with iRobot Vacuum System

Do you have a home robotic vacuum cleaner? They are all the new rage and quite innovative indeed. If you do not have one you eventually will have one, as that is how the future of vacuuming around the house will be done. Most household tasks will be done by simple robotic systems with at least a minimum of artificial intelligence programming. The ride on lawnmowers will move over and make way to the autonomous lawn mowing robots in the near future. Today a good vacuum is expensive and the iRobot is price competitive and they are selling like hot cakes. Only one problem, the family pets, do not like them much.

There is a right and wrong way to introduce these robotic vacuum cleaners to your cat. If you stick your iRobot vacuum on the floor and use it to chase your cat you may get a laugh, but your cat will not appreciate that one bit. Would you like someone trying to vacuum up your tail? Well, would you? I think not. That of course is the wrong way to introduce your cat to the iRobot vacuum.

If you are careful to make a proper introduction of your iRobot vacuum, cats actually like them, as they watch them carefully criss-cross their domain. You see you cat knows it owns the place, you just pay the bills so your cat can lounge around all day. Sit on the floor and hold your cat and turn on the vacuum to cruise around, allow it to bump into to you and then kick it out of the way, push it away with your hand. Like a Mother Tiger you are teaching your cat to hunt the vacuum, thus they vacuum becomes the prey and your cat knows it is the aggressor, thus you car will sit on the sofa and watch the thing go around and around all day and attack it at will. Ah ha, a new toy. You see the iRobot has more than one beneficial use. What a great human you are to provide such a wonderful gift to your cat.
