Default Reaction towards vacuum cleaners

I have been rather amused by Simcha's reaction to vacuum cleaners, and I was wondering about the other Chi's here on CP. Our Simcha thinks that a vacuum cleaner is an instrument of the Devil, and confronts it and barks at it quite aggressively. His aggression is pretty much the same whether or not the accursed machine is running or silent.

How about your Chi's. Are they:
a. Afraid of the vacuum cleaner?
b. Aggressive towards it?

Is there a difference of reaction when the machine is 'off'?

Just curious.

Mine run from it, off or on. If its off, I have 2 that will bark at it. If its on, they all head for the hills.

Odie doesn't care when it's off, but hides when it's on. She was fine with a vacuum on before, and I think the cats behavior has influenced her. We also have a super loud vacuum. I'd probably hide too. We have gotten to the point where she feels comfortable enough taking a treat while it's running though so I think we're making some progress.

My crew could care less, often times when I'm vacuuming and they are in my way
I have to ask them to move otherwise they'll just stand there, haha, little brats!

There was a time when they feared it, but I guess from my daily vacuuming
they've become desensitized.

No reaction when it's off. Don't really care when it's on unless I bump the couch while she's on it, then she acts like she's going to playfully attack it. She's not afraid of it, because when she was little I played with her by laughing & acting like I was going to get her.

I could literally vacume over Copley if I wanted to! I don't think Kerri likes the noise, but she dosnt run or bark she just looks at me as if I am causing her an inconvenience and often goes into another room. Unlike Copley she does move if I am about to run her over. When it is off no once could care less. Oh and I havnt vacumed in a week because I am sure it will cause Nova great destress, but tomorow it needs done (it needed done days ago) so I am still formulating plans on that. Having never seen a vacume before I have a chance to make a good first impression :/

Willow runs. Mylo does a mixture. He'll run at it, bark, run away, repeat. They're not bothered if it's off though. They also dislike my upright more than my sister's Henry one.

Jaxx used to be afraid of it. He would see Brock getting the vacuum out and he would run for his crate. I decided that we were going to work on it. It took a while but with a little time, patience, and love he now just sits on the back of the loveseat and watches as hubby vacuums the floors, which reminds me he was supposed to do that today and didn't!
