And the winner is kitten #4!

LOL! I was holding my breath that one (or more) of them didn't get sucked up into the machine. The most hilarious bits were when it scooted the kitteh on the floor back about a foot (what just happened?), and at the end when there was just one kitteh left, hanging on for dear life.

This is simultaneously the saddest and cutest thing of all time. The poor kittens were totally just getting pushed around!

quick jump back on the bandwagon fat kitteh!

They probably leave behind as much fluff as they vacuum. But sooooo adorable!!

OMG. robot vacuum drifting around, dropping kittens all over, pushing around, naked kid, running doggy. what is going on in this household!!

soon the kittens will be chasing the robo-vac around!!

Put a shirt on that kid! Give me one of those kittens!

posey
 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 10:58 PM

Man, they all looked so bewildered.
Life in that house must be freaky enough for them without random shirtless humans + a large wandering dog.
They'll get over it though, one hopes.

I want to second the cute or sad classification.

Awww…cute little kittens and- HOLY CRAP NAKED KID! Hahaha.

[Please. Shirtless, NOT naked. Wouldn't be on YouTube otherwise. - Ed.]

And OMG Meg those kittens could have totally been sucked up! Are you saying we should vacuum up our kittens now?!?!? FOR SHAME!!! ;)

That's so adorable. I disagree with Amy.. I love the kitties being pooshed around.. like a little kitten snow shovel.

Nibbler, devourer of souls
 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 11:13 PM

Wow. With almost any other creature that would be dangerous. Imagine the disapproving rabbits! Kittehs are just like "whatevs."

And apparently they have a pet elephant, too (oh, I'm sorry, that was a huge doggeh)...

What manner of cats are these, that have no fear of the Vacuum Monster?

Theo
 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 11:22 PM

I'm so tired of this. They're not poor helpless creatures, stop treating them like such. If they didn't want to be on there anymore, they would have totally jumped off, it's basic natural instinct. Nobody was hurt, it was all pure fun. Let's just enjoy. OK?

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 11:29 PM

Oh my goodness, I wish I had a bunch of kittens to pile on top of my Roomba as it whirrs around. Not to worry for the kittens' safety, the Roomba uses brushes but no suction, so they are just being scooched over by the oncoming Roomba.
Kittens + Robots = Adorable!

(Loosely to the rhythm of "10 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed")
Six little kittehs cruising on the vac,
Two fell off and said, "That was whack."
Another rolled off and then there were three,
The third fell adjacent, immediately.
Two little kittehs riding toward the end,
Bumpy wall knockout--the last kitteh stands!

It seems that Roomba surfing will be the new sport in pet olympics:

I loved this, totally made up for my crappy day. And the comments just added to it.

Roombas clean up very thoroughly, and they don't suck, so you don't have to worry about sucking kittens or other small mammals into it!

A Roomba goes quite slowly and is really low. Kittens can easily jump off if they want to.

P.S. Hahahahaha! (They really don't look bothered, do they).

Yay! Self-cleaning cats.
Clean the litter box while you're at it, mmK?

Poor Roomba. It's confusing when the dustballs run away.

Check out the belleh on the first kitteh that floops of the roomba.

Ingenious kitteh delivery system! Had to LOL!!

Oh, automated kitten delivery AND cleaning service! Cool! Can I have one black kitten, please? Oh, and please do clean under the sofa, it's a whole new world under there.

If I know Roombas came with kittens, I would have bought one a long time ago! To those of you warning against this - have you ever been owned by a cat? They do more dangerous things than this on their own and survive quite nicely!

Lisa (one of several)
 |  Jan 30, 2009 at 04:18 AM

obviously "know" above should be "knew" - sorry

Love the splayed position of the Last Kitten Standing. He's bracing himself.

Nik
 |  Jan 30, 2009 at 04:29 AM

personally, i don't know how Roombas work, nor do i care. This vid had me laughing out loud at work getting strange, covert glances from my coworkers. As for the bebehs, they didn't seem stressed at all, just determined to sleep through all the moving. I definitly give this movie a thumbs up, Siskel!

I have a roomba - greatest thing eva for sucking up my birdie feathers! I recommend to all petowners. And I heartily agree with Starling and others: roomba could not hurt a fly. If I sent a video of my parrot riding my roomba (with "Bat Outta Hell" playing as the soundtrack), will ya post eet!!!???

It looks to me like the kitties were getting back onto it themselves, and one was lying down, relaxing on there. Maybe they think it's purring.

As for being pushed around: this reminds me of our cat Moonpie (a rather LARGE animal), who just lies on her back in the kitchen till someone feeds her. If she's in front of the fridge, she'll just let the opening door slide her along. "I Don't Care" is her motto. Very Stubborn. Obvy, that little kitten wasn't in the least worried about that Roomba pushing him/her a bit any more than Moonpie minds people stepping over her repeatedly (as long as they are headed for the chow bag.)

(I also like the Delayed Tail View of the dog at the end of the clip)

That house looks like fun! The mom in charge has a sense of humor, I bet that kid has fun at home...

maca
 |  Jan 30, 2009 at 05:15 AM

Wow, the incentives that companies are offering in the bad economy!! I have a coupon for a moo-cow kitteh with purchase of a Roomba (to get the entire puddle of kittehs, you have to get the SuperDuperExtraFabulous version).....

Gail
 |  Jan 30, 2009 at 05:27 AM

Kittens: "Hmm, Mom looks rounder and flatter today. But she's purring, so I guess it's OK. PILE ON!!!"

Winner Kitteh looks just like my dear departed Yevgeny, and he was a Mr. Budge-No-More, too. Once he decided he was going to sit someplace, the Earth could crumble and nothing could shift him.

i don't know what's funnier, the whirring kitteh clown car or the babbling nuffers

i'm going to be chuckling insanely all day

"Bleep! Get these things OFF of me. I am a vacuum not your beast of burden!"

Jezebel
 |  Jan 30, 2009 at 05:47 AM

LOL. The first time a kitteh gets pushed, when the kitteh just keeps sitting and looking bewildered, and then when the first one goes keerr-flop, and then just lays, there are hilarious.

shahinrani
 |  Jan 30, 2009 at 05:53 AM

Hilarious and cute! But I have a question: how does a Roomba work if it doesn't have suction??

[It does, just not very much. Doesn't need to be a tornado to work. - Ed.]

I just got a Roomba. As soon as it finishes charging, the first thing I will do is try to get my cats to ride it.

DJ
 |  Jan 30, 2009 at 05:57 AM

The two best parts are the belly of the first kitty to fall off, and the kitty being scooted across the floor at :17. And the giant dog. Three. The THREE best parts are: belly, scooted kitty, giant dog. And the black kitty at the beginning who seems to be asleep. Four.Drat! I'll come in again....
