Roomba's not normally that loud (quieter than an upright vaccuum). The problem is that it has sensors in it to detect walls and slow down before it runs into them. The sensors aren't the greatest so it will run into table legs at full speed. It knocked over a small table and made a huge BANG. :/
Thanks guys. When Roomba's running, Io always has access to safe spaces (her litter/safe room, for one, and her cathouse / window are blocked off by the Roomba "lighthouses", so the vaccuum doesn't go there.). Next time I'll try using the lighthouse to block off the bedroom at first, and have her in there when it starts. If that doesn't work I'll try locking her in the bedroom, I guess.
I will not be cuddling her when the vaccuum's on for a long long time, if ever, though.

I wonder if this is the case. The two smaller scratches were fine this morning, but the middle one was red, sore, and had some yellow goopies in it (eeeewww). I soaked in warm water and intentionally re-opened the cut to get some polysporin in there. Between that and the Benedryl I took for my hangover's it's a bit better, not so angry-looking, but still sore. I have a dr's appt tomorrow (for birth control
) and may just ask her to take a quick look while I'm there. But I think it's fine.
I still feel awful. She was licking it this morning when I woke up and I had to push her away because I don't want any more cat spit.
