Cindy is afraid of being picked up, put into a carrier, and taken to the vet. She's also not fond of thunder.

Swanie is afraid of loud noises and anything he's not sure what it is. For example, if there's a pile of clothes on the floor, he'll sneak up on it very cautiously. If it moves for some reason, he'll jump backward. If he's really startled, he'll jump in the air. The other night he was sitting by the throw rug in the family room, and I moved it a bit. He jumped up and back. I shouldn't laugh at the little guy, but it looked very funny.

Mine will do that too: jump from the sudden movement of something. Sometimes when they're walking by me, I'll move my foot towards them, and they'll freak out. I know I shouldn't do it, but it's just too funny!

Lily is afraid of everything - people, loud noises, toys getting thrown too close to her, sudden movements, slow movements, looking at her, trying to hand feed her treats... She used to take treats until she bumped her mouth while taking a treat from DH and now she's scared of them, but slowly getting better.

Smudge is only afraid of heights She loves getting on your shoulder, and rolling around your shoulders, but she seems to freak out when she looks down due to her depth perception issues.

Stumpy doesn't like the vacuum, but isn't "scared" of it. She's not really afraid of anything else. A friend in our complex walks his exciteable dog by our place regularly, and the dog jumps up at our windows and puts her nose up to the screen where Stumpy and Smudge are, and they just sniff her back and pretty much just ignore her!

Quill is terrified of my cousin. The first time they were introduced to each other, I made the mistake of holding Quill, and I guess the way my cousin popped out of nowhere (He was getting his boots off in the doorway and I was in the kitchen) just freaked Quill out. He actually HISSED (!!!), the only time I've ever heard him hiss (because he's quite mellow!) scrambled over my shoulder and clawed my back up as he jumped down. Quill used to run away every single time my cousin came over, but they're slowly getting used to each other. He's a little bit skittish, but it's more like bratty/playful skittish than scared skittish.

the vacuum, anyone who comes to the door and UNBELIEVABLY the ironing board.

I think it is because I used to iron near the back of the couch when they were kittens and whenever I brough the ironiing board out I would chase them away so they would not get near it.

Now when it comes out of the closet they run and peek out from under the bed till it goes away.

Misty is scared to death of the sound the garbage disposal makes and will hide under the recliner or my bed.

About the only thing I have found that makes Greta run and hide is when I get a new garbage bag for the trash can and she sees me snapping it in the air to open the bag before putting it in the trash can. Not sure why this freaks her out but she always runs away.

Nothing at all. She is crazy. Sounds that I would assume normal cats would run from, she runs to, checking it out. She is the most outgoing, social and curious cat I have ever known.

Ares is afraid of NOTHING He is attracted to loud noises and loves water. (It makes vacuuming hard and power tools dangerous.) Hypnos is wary when it comes to loud noises but loves water. Both love people and don't mind the vet. I guess they are both pretty fearless.

They are scared of life. Ok bad joke. Marbs isn't really scared of much, maybe loud, sudden noises. She will hang out if there's strangers. She'll also stick around the vacuum but run if it gets too close. Sometimes she'll get scared if I go overboard on yelling at her for being bad. Mia is scared of loud noises and strangers at first. I assume she's afraid of the vacuum too since she's never around when I do it. She's not quite as brave as her sissy, never has been.

Astrid is afraid of ice cubes! She loves to follow me into the kitchen and loves to look in the fridge, but the minute I get out ice cubes she flees in terror. She apparently cannot stand the sound of me cracking them into a glass. I remember putting one on the floor to see if she would play with it, but no deal.

Not much, except for very loud noises. They all leave the room if the vacuum or hair dryer is on - although often, they like to stay close enough to still be able to supervise what these noisy machines are doing. They're not generally scared of thunderstorms, although Blue used to try to sneak out until she darted out once just before a huge clap of thunder - she ran right back into my arms, and hasn't tried to sneak out since!

Delilah isn't afraid of visitors per se, she just has no use for them. The other four will try to climb all over anybody who comes to the house.

There is the natural response of suddenly hearing a loud noise, but besides that, Twinky isn't really afraid of anything.

You mean some of you actually have an ironing board and iron?
Vacuum cleaner - yes. Lately, though, Butzie is afraid of hubby George. No reason for this. My husband is a sweetie and would never harm any pet. Okay, so he is not a pet person and they can sense that but now she just goes in the opposite direction. And he loves her! And feeds her! And bought her that automatic litter box! Go figure!

Sometimes sounds or smells cause sensory overload, just like cuddling your cat's belly can. Maybe the sound of ice cubes does that to your cat.

Kuce used to be afraid of everything but now nothing seems to traumatize her - except the V-E-T.

Lil' Jag is afraid of the vacuum, baths, strangers, and the vet.

Luvbug is afraid of vacuums, brooms and mops, vets, strangers, car rides and other vehicles, and loud noises. (But then again he was a semi-feral.)

Cally's afraid of plastic bags and the vacuum cleaner. Whenever I turn on the vacuum, she tries to sneak up on it but when she realizes that she's not going to 'win' the fight she streaks to another room and hides under the bed. haha =)
