How to Vaccum a Cat

Here are the Rules:

#1. Find a cooperative cat.*

#2. Give him a bath.

#3. Dry him off.

#4. Use the vacuum cleaner drapery attachment to fluff and remove loose fur.

*NOTE: Rule #1 is the most important.

*NOTE: Rule #1 is easier to follow if the cat is deaf and senile and has totally forgotten that cats are afraid of noisy vacuum cleaners!

This is Bo. He is 18 years old. He has just had a bath but he's already forgotten he had a bath so he's not mad anymore and he just thinks he's being petted:

Is that pathetic? Or hilarious??? Mike was being careful not to suck the entire cat into the vacuum hose; I'm behind the camera, and that's also my voice you hear in the background, laughing, so you'll want to turn your sound on!

Bo enjoyed it! And so did we!

Fabulous! And I love how he turns around so Mike can do the back part....

Definitely the crazy cat lady...if it makes you feel better, my mom is one too! (maybe I will never understand because I will never l have a cat!)

HAHAHAHAHA!!! That was completely and totally enjoyable! I knew I liked that cat. Such an obedient kitty. Brizzy & Cowboy? No way in the world would we even get the hose near my woofies, let alone fluff them down with it!! HAH!

I finally got around to watching the video...that is pretty funny! Love when it came time to vacuum the tail! Is this something that you do regularly?

Great Video. Such a sweet, well manered cat. Give him a hug for me. :)

Hi Debbie, Great video. What a good kitty Bo is, to let Mike do that to him. He actually seemed to enjoy it! Tell Mike Ajax is anxious to try the system. Ha Ha. Love, Mom

I can't believe Bo let you guys do that! And he seemed to really like it. Very cool, and very, very funny! He seriously doesn't look 18!

OMG!!! That is the funniest video...you should publish it on YouTube! Bo is looking amazingly well...what a sweetie he is. I think deaf and senile are definitely the keys to this process. I want to share this with Gene and Sheri in Denver. Their cat Alex is 19, deaf and senile too ... purrrrfect! Looking forward to seeing clean and fluffy Bo!
