Leaving Roomba and Kitten alone?

Up to this moment I always turned on my roomba vacuum cleaner while I was at home. For the most part Teddy is fine with it, he usually just watches it work, but sometimes he wants to attach and fight with it.

I was wondering if anyone here owns a roomba, and schedules it to work while you are not at home? I don't even know what I am worried about. I hope just Teddy doesn't freak out when I am not there to protect him from the annoying thing that wants to vacuum him.

I also have a roomba and my cat gets a bit nervous when I turn it on.
I avoid using the schedule now, if I really need it I confine the roomba in a closed room.
I know it defies one of the purposes of even having a roomba in the first place, but that's the compromise I put myself into when I got the cat.
Try putting a camera on the area and leave the house or go to another area. At least you can see what happens on the first attempt and can intervene if necessary.

I don't have a Roomba, but I did a search for Roomba and cats.

Should have some fun videos to watch when I have time.

That's funny. I have a roomba and it doesn't bother my cats at all. They are a little weird though. They like to hang out near the washing machine or dryer when they are running too. I do have one vacuum cleaner, a eureka upright that they don't like. It's quite loud. In fact I have to make sure nobody is holding them or petting them at the time I turn it on or they will scratch the daylights out of them in their effort to get away.
