<< My Dad had read about vacuuming a cat (to help with shedding) and he and I

tried this with my cat when I was 13. The cat was about 6-7 years old and I

ended up in the emergency room. I still have a scar on my finger, the one

fingernail was almost completely torn off. Be careful, some animals

consider this abuse and won't stand for it. I can, however, see how a

little baby kitten could grow to love such a thing. >>

A friend of mine when we were teens used the vacuum cleaner to... ummmm.....

she called it bluntly "jacking off her cat."

She only vacuumed his tommy-bits and he seemed to like it plenty.
