Are all cats afraid of hoovers?
No! take a look at this video on Twitter. We know that most if not nearly all domestic cats are afraid of hoovers but not all. It depends on the cat's personality and his training. Cats can get used to the sound and movement of a hoover and self-train to ignore or accept them. It may take a long time to get to the situation we see in the video. Some cats are confident and some are timid. I have seen a cat thoroughly enjoying himself while his owner hoovered his belly 😃. It takes all sorts.

There is a role to play for the cat's caregiver however. They can help their cat be less fearful of the sound and movement of what to the cat seems like an unknown noisy object that might be a predator. That's why they scram before you are anywhere near him/her. Once they understand that the hoover is no dangerous you have halfway there.
