Since 2002.

We bought a Roomba a few weeks ago. So far the cats don't want to get anywhere near it. I am disappoint.

Have you tried getting them in a shark suit first?

We bought a Roomba 4 months ago. No idea how the cat will like it, we haven't been able to clear the floor enough to use it in all that time. Messy people problems.

Never seen Hoover as a verb before; at first I read it as hovering and was hoping to see a floating cat.

I think it’s pretty strictly a British expression; they use it where Americans would say “vacuuming.”

That is an incredibly quiet vacuum. I had an original roomba and it was quite loud. I'd be interested in an automated vacuum at that decibel level. Anyone know what model that is?

WacoKid, I can't identify it, but I have a Eufy that's about this level of noise? Certainly on the quieter end of things, going by Amazon reviews.

Anyway, this is exactly the kind of white noise I work best to, sincere thanks for this, the greatest thing humanity has ever created.

I have no idea how the BBC got their cat sat onto their Roomba, or why.

It is 2020 and I demand to see hovercats. Surely they should have been invented by now.

I used to have a Roomba but I got rid of it.

It was just gathering dust.

i had one but the time spent cleaning the stuff out of the roomba felt like i couldve just swept instead... it was like 2005 tho so maybe theyre better now? also my cats were not interested so truly what was the point :(
