    Maybe she thinks it's a new type of dog?

    There's a video of it in action here:

    I've seen videos online of cats riding on Roombas. But we all know cats are smarter than dogs.......Sam made me say that!

    Anybody can sit when told to sit and fetch when told to fetch. Just why in the world would anyone want to though? Why waste your time following some human being's orders?

    The way to keep your cat from sitting on your Roomba is to tell your cat to sit there.

    :) I got the V3S white model. Once it goes back and on the charger the lights flash three times every few minutes until it is charged and they turn off. Roombas go as high as $800. $140 is much better. Jeanie :)

    ((((((Hugs to All)))))) ~

    We were gifted a Roomba a couple of years ago. It didn't work for us, because we have too many obstacles on the floor, and I had to remove them from the floor, before I set off the Roomba. The Roomba also gobbles up things like electric cords, or a napkin on the floor. Then, I had to track it down. It was more work for me than using my Dyson Stick and a Swiffer mop for dust on our floors.

    I also found removing the Roomba's filter and emptying the chamber to be cumbersome. It isn't light weight to me, and it takes a bit of effort to remove the parts and replace them with arthritic hands. I balanced it on the kitchen counter, because the only other option was to bend down to reach it on the floor.

    When we received the Roomba, I thought it would be wonderful. For us, it wasn't. I haven't used it for well over a year.

    Love & Light,

    There's no way I would want one of those robotic vacuums even though they look nifty, buzzing around and sucking everything up.

    It's one more thing to tinker with, and it requires replacement of several items as well as recharging. I'm already up to my ears in things that need recharging--scales, phone, iPad. I already have a couple of vacuums that need periodic replacement of filters of various kinds. Enough!

    Thanks! I actually do not know what I was thinking. In every way I am rejecting modern equipment that adds burden. I really do have brooms that I use to sweep the floors and a small hand held vacuum to pick up the sand our shoes have brought into the house. I think I am mostly living the life of a farm woman of in the 1800s and I like it.

    Sunshine, that is so great. You just set and clipped away. I know how much you enjoy being out, so glad you had this opportunity.

    I finally vacuumed all over downstairs today. That was the first time my house has been vacuumed in at least two weeks and it might be closer to 3. That is a first for me. I like to always vacuum the floors, however I was sick last week and I think I was part of the week before.
