I was expecting to see a Roomba with a cat tail hanging out of it.

Darn.

I was expecting to see a Roomba with a cat tail hanging out of it.
... and pooping rainbows.

Every time I vacuum and empty the canister, I think, "How can Browser possibly have any fur left on his body?"

I thought this was the way to fix the cat hair problem....

Get a cat without the hair to begin with.

This one seems to be leaving hair balls all over the floor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTxW3GWZ5hI&feature=related

One wonders how the Roomba people ascertained that their invention wouldn't suck up little kittens.

My wife loves her Roomba. We have two cats and a dog.

I also like cats, but with four working dogs running around, I am not even allowed to have mice...

Dogs have it better - they get a motor scooter and driver

It is not uncommon to see multiple dogs on one scooter - as many as four. One of my neighbors brings four dogs to the park for their daily walk via a motorscooter with one on the floorboard, two riding behind the driver, and one propped between the handlebars and the front of the seat.

Of course my own dog has logged thousands of kilometers around town with me and is completely at home on one. We are 'one with the scooter'. Another neighbor's beagle tries to mooch a ride any time I go by as he never gets to ride. Sometimes I take him around the block on a joy ride.
