Our Christmas present from my family

Roomba 770 removes dirt, dust and pet hair on its own. It features Dirt Detect™ Series 2 technology to concentrate cleaning in the dirtiest areas and a Full Bin Indicator that lets you know when the bin needs to be emptied. Using iAdapt® Responsive Navigation Technology, Roomba thoroughly vacuums the entire floor, including hard-to-reach spots under furniture. Dual HEPA air filters stop fine dust from circulating in your home.

Shark Cat

From Good Morning America ~

This is Max, a 12-year-old cat dressed in a shark suit, riding on top of a Roomba vacuum.

“He loves to the ride the Roomba,” Max’s owner, Helen Arnold of Houston told Good Morning America. “He does it pretty much every day. Sometimes I put it away, and if the Roomba is hidden somewhere in the corner, he just sits there and looks at me.”

Max’s shark impersonation is more precious than ferocious as he dons his adorable shark costume, which was actually originally intended for Arnold’s pet dog.

“I do costumes for Halloween and my dog’s name is Shark, so we’ve been looking for a shark costume for him,” Arnold, 33, explained. “But I haven’t found a good shark costume for a dog, so I bought this one and it didn’t fit him so we tried it on the cat.”

Arnold and her husband rescued Max from behind an abandoned house as a kitten. They first discovered his love for riding the Roomba five years ago when they purchased the vacuum.

“One day he was riding it when I got home,” said Arnold. “It was scary. He knows how to press the button.”
