Cute Kittens Extremely Skeptical of Vacuum (Video)

These kittens are in utter shock. Is it an alien space ship in their home, a strange new species or a very slow-moving vacuum cleaner? Judging by the looks on their faces, they haven’t yet figured it out.

Really cute kittens! One of our cats loves to be vacuumed, but the others don't care and they just lie there and let me vacuum right up to an inch from their noses.
btw....I never worried about starting the vacuum in front of them or behind them...they just feel secure in our home and it shows in their mellow, trusting behaviour.

We had a cat that did not care for the sound of the upright vacuum so I would always starting singing the song, "Vacuum Cleaner Monster, la, la, la, la, la! It's vacuum cleaner Monnnnnster! Here it comes!" That was for the benefit of the cat that owned me so that she knew when to expect the roar of the machine. She lost her sight in her senior years so the song became even more helpful to alert her to the sound that was to come.

Another cat, a Siamese loved to have a gentle vacuum massage on the belly with the attachment on, for some reason he was attracted to the vacuum cleaner and demanded his belly rubs. Loudly, as only a Siamese can. He would pout if he did not get a massage. One never disappoints a Siamese. Ever!

There are some cats that will actually sit on those types of vacuums and go for a ride around the room as they ‘sight see’. Oh, my...Dianne D thinks that the person made an error starting the vacuum behind the kittens. That may be so, but then she states: “The first mistake was that the human startled the kittens by starting the vacuum behind them - on purpose. For the rest of their lives, they will now fear the vacuum. What an idiot the human is. Shouldn't be allowed to have animals.”

What happens if a parent makes an error and a young child is inadvertently frightened by a sudden noise? I guess they shouldn't be allowed to have children if some had their way. People learn from their mistakes, it's not like the person left the poor kittens shut inside a car on a hot day. Many kittens eventually adjust to the vacuum cleaner monster after a time, some never do.
