This year my son listed a Roomba on his wish list. I had been thinking of getting one for myself since several friends use it and love it. Since my son always does extensive research on any product before he buys or even thinks about getting, I decided to get one for him and one for me.
I can say that it is effective. It does a very good job of cleaning the floor and picking up all the cat hair. Crash and Burn aren't too keen on it though and sometimes I don't blame them. It's like having another child or cat. It just doesn't listen to me and has a mind of its own.
This morning I put it down in the kitchen since I wanted it cleaned first. Well, Roomba seemed to have a mind of its own and went straight for my bedroom and stayed there for 1/2 hour. That floor didn't need that much cleaning.
I finally picked it up, closed the bedroom door and put it down in the kitchen. It headed immediately for the bedroom again, but was blocked. The next time I saw it, it was back in the living room and pushing a cat toy around. Was it playing with the toy? It's still wandering around the living room. Will it ever get to the kitchen?
