Mancat Monday

Be sure to write it clearly mum or nobody will believe you because there aren't any pictures.  Okay Casper I'll do my best. 

Casper checks my post

On Sunday when I was vacuuming in the bedroom, Casper came in to see me.  The vacuum has never bothered him because being a deaf cat, he cannot hear the loud noise.

don't forget to write how brave I was

Casper has always enjoyed a good brushing, both the zoom groom and the furminator are fine with him.  So I wondered if he would like being vacuumed too.  I had the round brush attachment on the hose because I was cleaning under the bed when Casper approached me.  I started stroking Casper's back with the nozzle and he LOVED it.  He stood for several minutes while I did the top of his back, head and sides :-)

Casper snuggles up to tell me how much he liked the new brush

I wish I had pictures!!!  It seems that in future I will have to do the vacuuming with a camera in my pocket in case Casper is amenable to another suction grooming :-)

You are a gorgeous, generous, brave and above all an exceptional cat! Not to be afraid of the vacuum cleaner is extraordinary, but to like a brushing by it is exceptional!

Smoochies to all of you!

I've seen other cats being vacuumed on YouTube... now I am wondering if they too are deaf! I would definitely love to see photos of this, Casper!

Oh, Casper! You are such a good boy!!! The pictures are great, espoecially the last one snugling with Mom.
Lovew the new header with your beautiful blue eyes!!!

Marg said...

Yay Casper. Bet that felt really good to be vacuumed. Being deaf has some great advantages. Have yourself a great day. Casper, glad Mom got it all down just right.

Hannah and Lucy said...

You are so brave Casper even when our vacuum is not switched on we run away!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

mom hadn't thought about the brush attachment. maestro let her vaccuum him once but ran the last time. doc had more fun chasing it than anything else. :)

Angie said...

Some of ours will actually stay in the room with the vacuum but I really do not think any would be as brave as Casper ...maybe I should give it a try.lol

Samantha, Clementine and Maverick said...

Tamago said...

Casper, that's amazing! Your mom sure needs camera with her when she vacuums:-) You probably enjoy lint roller, too?

Madi and Mom said...

Once again the most handsome Casper taught you all about multi-taksing.
Bless his sweet little heart. I can nearly hear him purring with glee..
Hugs and thanks for the sweet story and pictures.

Incredible that he has no fear of aspiration.
Here at home my five cats disappear when I turn on the vacuum cleaner!
Casper hvae a sweet face, he´s a sweet angel with deep blue eyes!

meowmeowmans said...

Wow, Casper, you are BRAVE! Our Sammy is also deaf and unafraid of the vacuum. As long as he does not see it, that is.

Katnip Lounge said...

I did that to Chuckles! He didn't like it when I sucked in his tail (accidentally) though.

CCL Wendy said...

I'm sure Casper's deafness allowed him to sample this exotic pleasure! I think I'd like to be vacuumed, too, if it wasn't so noisy.

I use an electric massager that makes quite a buzzing sound, but Dylan and Domino just love it. Dylan jumps up and actually begs for it.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Brave! I bet now you'll be bugging to be vacuumed.. MOL
I used to vacuume a fat calico I used to have, she loved it, even when I sucked up her tail in it.

LP said...

Casper , maybe a bit of Lewis is guiding your new found love of the vacuum! :)
Leo and Tulip used to be afraid of the vacuum but aren't anymore and now Leo lets me vacuum him :)
Issa is the only one who really seems afraid of the vacumm cleaner!

Eric and Flynn said...

You are very brave Casper! We only have to see the vacuum come out of the cupboard and we are gone!

Cory said...

Casper, you are SO brave!!!! Did you know that the sight of the sucky monster sends our big woofie Grete running???? Before it's even turned on.

Cheri said...

Our deaf cat Al hate the suck monster. If we get near him he whaps it! Chica on the other hand likes t have the vacumn run over her. Go figure.

Forever Foster said...

What a brave boy you are, Casper! Our mum thinks it would be pretty swell if we could be that brave. We are not fans of the noisy monster at all. Lishy spits at it.

Alex aus dem Gwundergarten said...

Hi there
I had just to see what your boys were doing. And now I've got a big smile in my face? I really would love to see how Casper get stroked with a vacuum cleaner... I hope you will catch him once with the camera.

Trop beau Casper ! Bonne soirée Cat. Biz. CricriCat

Fuzzy Tales said...

OMC, too funny! We've heard of the occasional cat liking to be vacuumed, but it's so rare...of course he couldn't hear the horrific noise. Very cool. LOL.

BTW, our mom's left a couple of comments on Cheri's blog re: the buddy system she is hoping to set up. We're thinking that it might be helpful to pair up with someone in-country -- in-province, or reasonably close -- would be even better. Not suggesting you pair up with us, you might have other preferences, this was just a general thought. Our mom would have to go get an out-of-Canada calling card to have on hand if she were to pair up with anyone in the U.S. (as an example). And we're pretty sure someone in the U.K. would prefer to call in-country too, rather than overseas. (There's also the time differences to take into account, in the case of an emergency.)

Hello dear friends! (Congrats on being in the Top 25 Cat Blogs of 2012, that is very awesome!) Oh Casper, you are such a beauty and such a unique guy, glad you enjoyed the vacuuming...

Surveillance software said...

Recent numbers show that 63% of US households own a pet - that's 71.1 million homes and families with dogs, cats, iguanas, parakeets, fish, ferrets, potbellied pigs, etc, etc., Taking care of a pet is tougher than taking care of an infant, since our pets can't speak. Hence, making sure your pet is safe and happy when you leave it alone at home should be a priority for all pet owners. One of the simplest ways of watching over a pet remotely is by using some sort of webcam software like GotoCamera that is easily available online these days. Thanks to technology and some very smart people who are working on making things easier for us, you can now use your basic webcam to monitor your pets while you're away from them.
