So I'm vacuuming. And the cats just sit in their respective places not minding at all. I can get up to a foot of them and they just stay put and watch. But any closer and they move, let me vacuum there, and the go back and sit. I got to the stairs and Callie sat right next to each stair I vacuumed and watched. Even stayed on the same step until I got a little too close then she'd move up a step. Weird felines. Aren't they supposed to be afraid of loud noises? Next they'll be wanting to take a bath!
