Cats are weird
FAT CAT (aka Scruffy)
I was vacuuming the loveseat today to get all the cat hair off it (Fat Cat lays on it a lot and he sheds like crazy, even when we brush him a couple of times a week). Vacuuming the loveseat was not an easy job either, Fat Cat decided he wanted to play with the hose to the vacuum cleaner (that cat isn't afraid of anything, I swear). So I thought while I was vacuuming up loose cat hair, I'd vacuum him too (thinking he'd run away and I could finish the love seat). No such luck, he loved it! Stupid cat. Took me half an hour to vacuum that damned loveseat because I had to do it around the cat. Every time I put him down on the floor and started the vacuum back up, he was right back up there, rubbing on the hose and the brush, trying to play with it, chasing it, and trying to chew on it. He moved more while I was vacuuming him/the loveseat than he normally does (unless he's playing with the stuffed mouse that squeaks when he bats it). This is the cat that is so lazy he has to lay down to eat his cat food, and lays down to drink water. If you put a plate of canned cat food down for him, he lays down and eats all the food on one side of the plate and then looks at you like "aren't you going to turn the plate for me so I can eat the food on the other side?"
I didn't have to worry about Slick, he runs and hides when I start the vacuum cleaner. He doesn't like it at all.
