There is no point getting a kid a hamster, its always asleep. Its a nocturnal animal. A couple of rats however make  great pet's, they like human company, they are very friendly and affectionate and like to play, kids love them.

Rats? You're crazy.
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I had a dc08 in once it had no suction, sounded horrible and really did pong 🤢 Turns out it was full of parrot crap and was clogged everywhere with it it had been used without a filter and seed had got into the fan 🤔

We had one recently full of rabbit droppings and blocked up with bits of straw (probably wee soaked)  :sick0012:

I've pulled a mutilated rat out of a sanitaire, bloody bandages and all sorts of good stuff, my personal favorite is when a households cats/dogs/etc select the vacuum as a urinal. Those sticky, yellow machines are probably the grossest things I've ever smelled in my entire life. Right up there with old dog Kirby outer cloth bags. Nasty.

Just refurb'ed a DC26, and it was full of mud, an insane amount of polyester stuffing (the type inside stuffed animals/pet toys) and the turbine head clogged with damp Wal-mart receipts pressed into a solid mass. I'm new here (Hi!) and might do a little writeup on the process.

Way way back when, in junior high, I worked on a project that required a high-wattage fan motor, and someone's parents' friend donated to us an old Hoover that had been run without a bag in place. It was inexplicably filled with the obliterated remains of a head of garlic...

Mildly related, but I'm always astounded at how many eBay listings I see that are proud to include a half-full bag already fitted, as if old carpet dust was a great bonus.
