Cats are curious creatures. Normally they are finicky beasts who don't like loud noises and dive under the bed the moment the vacuum comes out.
However, one massive moggie has such a love affair with the machine that he lets his owner give him a good hoover.
The video has over 80,000 hits on YouTube. Without flinching, the tawny-coloured cat rolls over onto his back to let his owner give him the once over. It makes a lot of housecleaning sense - why not get all those pesky cat hairs before they reach your couch?
As one comment puts it: 'Get the hairs before they hit the carpet - smart!'
Although another is not so nice about the tabby's expanding size.
'That cat would run away if it wasnt [sic] so fat,' they said.
Indeed, the spoilt animal is a bit on the heavy side - perhaps too fat to lick his own fur. But, then again, why risk a furball when you can get someone else to do the grooming?
