Default The Big Loud Sucky Monster

aka the vaccuum cleaner. Hoover, if you prefer. It actually is a
Hoover branded vaccuum cleaner.

I vaccuumed the living room. In the era this house was built there was
usually a formal "living room" for entertaining. My parents didn't
entertain. They still built a house with a very large room which was
mostly useless and unused. The carpeting was at some point changed to
white. Oh gawd!

When I moved in I put my desk in the corner. Right by the windows. I
can see the hummingbird feeder from where I sit. Turn my head, I can
see other birds at the birdbath. I also added cat furniture and cat
toys. And a cat. First Persia, then after she died I adopted Buffy.
It's mostly Buffy's room now.

Like most cats, Buffy is terrified when I bring out the big sucky
monster. It's loud, it's scary. Too bad. Gotta get the wood scrapings
from clawing the heck out of the posts on the cat tree and ripped up
cardboard from the scratcher off the floor. You're the one clawing this
stuff and spreading it all over over the place. It requires the Big
Sucky Monster.

Also like most cats, she got over it. She's free to start making a mess
again.

Boyfriend was very scared of the Sucky Monster so I only used it when he
was outside. The two girls I have now have been indoors all their life,
they lived in a tiny apartment and don't mind it too much. I guess they
got used to it as there was nowhere to get away from it.

Well, my cats (Persia, RB) and Buffy have always been indoor cats. Both
terrified of the Sucky Monster. The difference is Buffy makes much more
of a mess. I have to run the Sucky Monster much more often because she
tears stuff up and leaves a mess all over the carpet. She should be
used to it but she's not. She finds places to hide. I vaccuum.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

All my cats have been scared of the vacuum cleaner.It's one way to get
them to move from a room or place, instead of me being mean and moving
them, they decide and they get the satisfaction of giving me attitude too.
Win, win.
