60|365 Keep your Enemies Close (3/5/11)
Every cat I’ve had is frightened of vacuum cleaners and thinks they are an enemy out to get them. When I use the vacuum cleaner or the carpet steamer Purrkins always finds a safe spot that is behind or under some furniture where he can watch very closely. Today, when I was finished I turned the steamer off and moved it close to Purrkins. He was determined to stay calm but he didn’t take his eyes off of the mean machine.
As it turned out I’m really glad I cleaned the house up a little today because after dinner at Dan McGuinness (an Irish pub around the corner from us) the group came back to our place for a while.
