A lot of cats and dogs are afraid of the vacuum, running and hiding as soon as it’s turned on. But Bored Panda community member Krzysztof Smejlis explains that with his cat Bobo, this is certainly not the case!

As a young kitten, about 2-3 months old, little Bobo used to play with the brush attachment of the vacuum cleaner. And when it came time to turn it on, his two older brothers would “disappear”–but not this brave kitty!

Because he seemed intrigued by the brush and the vacuum, Smejlis decided to run the brush over Bobo one day while he was cleaning. Although he seemed a little surprised by the feeling of the suction at first, after a couple tries, the kitty began really enjoying himself!

Cat owners know that this kitty would run and hide like his brothers if he did not like this treatment. However, even with the use of different attachments, Bobo relishes his vacuum massages!
