Why is the cat afraid of the vacuum cleaner?


For many cat owners, this is a very familiar situation - as soon as you take out the vacuum cleaner, your little tiger gets scared and, at best, runs away. But do you know why cats are terrified to even walk past these appliances?

 

Loud noise as well as many times the height - these are aspects that can be frightening for a cat. Little tigers enjoy calm, silence and their established routine. So when something so huge and loud suddenly appears in their territory, something is bound to happen!


You may have noticed that some cats are more frightened of vacuum cleaners than others. In this case, the previous experience your furry friend has with the appliance most likely plays a big role. If you've been teaching her about the sound since she was a little girl, she probably won't be fazed by vacuuming. But if your cat is unfamiliar with the vacuum cleaner, she will be afraid of it.


As already discussed, small kittens are more accustomed to this household helper. It is important not to underestimate anything and to introduce them really carefully. Proceed calmly and gradually. If you have an adult cat at home, don't despair. Even she may eventually take to the vacuum cleaner and treat it as another partner in the household. But don't push it when socialising with it. Leave the vacuum cleaner in the room, don't move it or switch it on. Let your cat sniff it and explore it. Clean it up after a while and repeat this familiarisation periodically.
