Cat Vac

A stubborn cat can't always be tamed. Sometimes you just need to get a new vacuum.

Larry had a problem. His cat had always been smart, but now it had gone too far.

His cat had learned how to use the automated vacuum.

At first it was funny, watching his cat ride around on a little robotic vacuum around the house. So funny, in fact, that Larry took photos, shared them with his friends, called up his mom, told everyone he knew.

But then the fun started to change. What was once an occasional joyride turned into addiction. His cat would ride the little robot vacuum around the house at least once a day, then multiple times a day, then morning, noon, and night.

Larry would eat his meals, staring at the cat whirling past him at the dinner table. Larry would watch TV with the cat scooting underneath his outstretched legs. Larry would try to sleep, hearing the whirring of the vacuum in the background, accompanied by a faint meow.

He knew he needed to put a stop to it, so he searched high and low and eventually found this Dyson DC26 Compact Canister Vacuum.

With its patented Root Cyclone™ technology and feel, Larry had the portability and cleaning power that he needed. His new Dyson vacuum would capture allergens, dust, and dirt, and it'd be quick and hygienic for him to toss all of it into a trash bin.

His new Dyson vacuum would be the solution. It'd keep his floor clean and, with the old vacuum gone, rid the cat of its now uncontrollable habit.

If only he'd remembered to also get rid of the riding lawnmower.

Concentrated Root Cyclone™ Technology:

  • Dyson’s patented Root Cyclone™ technology doesn’t rely on a bag to trap dust and dirt
  • Instead, it spins the air so fast that centrifugal forces up to 100,000 times the force of gravity fling dust and dirt out of the air and straight into the clear bin
  • And that includes the fine dust that can restrict airflow in some ordinary bagless vacuums
  • Unlike some other vacuums, Dyson machines don't lose suction

Easy Carrying and Storage:

  • DC26 machines are ultra-lightweight and small - for homes where storage is at a premium, or as a second machine for upstairs
  • They weigh just 12 lbs. but there's no compromise on performance
  • The cyclones in a DC26 machine work like the larger cyclones in a full-size Dyson vacuum

HEPA Filter:

  • Dyson cyclones are able to extract microscopic particles including common household allergens such as pollen and mold
  • But there’s also a HEPA filter as an extra precaution for people with asthma and allergies
  • It won’t need replacing – just give it a wash according to the instructions that come with the machine

Carbon Fiber Floor Tool:

  • The brush bars of most vacuums only have nylon bristles to clean different surfaces
  • These are not as effective on hard floors, where fine dust can be left behind
  • The Dyson Carbon fiber floor tool has both nylon bristles and brushes made from pure carbon fiber – selected for its anti-static properties
  • The carbon fiber brushes reduce static build-up on hard floors to remove fine dust, and the stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt from carpets

Captures Allergens and Expels Cleaner Air:

  • Ordinary vacuums can’t always retain all the dust they remove – so some of them vent some of it back into your room in the air they expel
  • That’s the reason for the dusty, electrical smell
  • Dyson cyclones can capture microscopic particles such as pollen, mold and bacteria

Hygienic and Quick to Empty:

  • Emptying the bin on a Dyson vacuum is quick and hygienic
  • Just press the button to release the dirt
  • The bin is clear, so you can see when it needs emptying – and how much dust, dirt and pet hair the machine has captured
  • Dyson vacuums were the first to have clear bins – despite market researchers insisting it was a bad idea
  • Now clear bins are everywhere (though not all are made from the same ABS polycarbonate as riot shields, like Dyson bins)
