The cat always wins.
I received a hilarious email from Tyler, Niles, Isabella, and Griffin -- four children who market, make, and sell RoomBuds. These are bunny rabbit, ladybug, etc., - shaped coverings that fit over a Roomba to make the robot vacuum cleaner look cuter and more friendly. (And less likely to kill all humans.)
Luckily, I was able to skillfully negotiate a deal by which TNIG send me a LADYBUG RoomBud and I send them an autographed copy of HTSARU. So totally rockin'.
My Roomba is going to be a wolf in ladybug's clothing.
