It's true. My cat, apparently, has decided to become my housekeeper. Not in a major way. And since she leaves her kitty prints just about everywhere in the house, I'm not sure that this is balancing things out. Still…
I came out of the bedroom Saturday morning, and during the night, Pinky had run the Roomba vacuum cleaner. My living room and hall carpets had those just vacuumed lines in all directions. I wouldn't mind, but I do like to make sure there aren't any pet toys lying around to get caught in the brushes. Don't want to burn up the engine or anything while I sleep.
I must confess that I wasn't terribly surprised by my discovery because I've been having trouble with her in the last couple of weeks turning the thing off in mid-cycle. Trouble maker. I guess she gets tired of the sound?
A friend told me to check out YouTube where you can find Roomba riding cats and dogs. Okay, I'm easily entertained. Sure enough, there are quite a few pets going for rides on vacuums. I don't want my monster cat to sit on mine. She already weighs 11.5 pounds at 9 1/2 months of age. I'm afraid she would definitely burn up the engine if she were to try to hitch a ride.
Now, this is where I should probably come up with some deep spiritual truth to share with you, but I'm stumped. So I think I will just leave you with one of the "cat riding on Roomba" videos I found on YouTube. Enjoy. Hope you are as easily entertained by animals as I am.
