But worrying about the bot rolling over some wet pet poo and spreading it all over the house.
Apparently, that happens.
Also this, of course.
All of the members of our ridiculous zoo are well-house-trained, and my god they do drop hair. It’d be nice to think of the hard-working little bot upstairs beavering away while I cranked out the words. Be even nicer if there was some way it could prep dinner as well.
But I dunno.
Even since I heard about the poo problem, that’s all I can think about.
We now have 2 Roborock vacuums in our house. The S5 and the S7. The S7 does both vacuuming and light mopping if you have bare floors. We have a single furry friend, and the rule of thumb is to just kick it off after a quick validation that the coast is clear. Since any "accidents" are rare, we have avoided any issues in the 3+ years we have had a robo vac. Cant say enough good things about Roborock. The app is great and its cool to see your floorplan get generated by our robot overlords.
Hearing from other sources that the poo threat is very real.
I see your fur problem and I raise you, 2 x 10kilo Maine Coon kittens and a 5kilo hairy rescue pup/rat.
with the amount of cattle you have JB, I would say go for a Miele C3 Cat and Dog ( https://www.harveynorman.com.au/miele-complete-c3-cat-dog-vacuum-cleaner.html ). Not robotic but it has at least the amount of power you need.
You do have to weigh up the adorable shenanigans of the cats taking over the vakoom as their personal fun park ride vs the risk of the poo problem.
Putting my risk management hat on, how likely is it that an unauthorised deposit would end up in the house and in the path of the vakoom? Because the adorable shenanigans possibility is a very compelling reason to invest...
I have had a robovac in this dual-cat house for 2.5 years, and it's the best thing I've ever bought.
Recently purchased a second one for downstairs.
You would not believe the amount of hair and dirt and filth they pickup up every. damned. day.
i was wondering if the lawnmower equivalent would be any good as well. Except at my place it would need its Duke of Edinburgh award (with a christian deprogramming patch installed) and a good gps tracking signal for when it got into trouble
We need get Elon on this problem. Obviously a poo sensor is needed . An alarm or just avoidance. He’s not that busy
I’m 90% sure that cat did not dress themself. The Velcro gives it away. Anyway, dressing your pets up in funny costumes may contribute to the other problem.
