Frantic panic and/or alarm a cat displays when the vacuum cleaner, sweeper, or other loud appliances made an appearance is called catvoom.

In example, “Quinn displayed intense catvoom, alerting to the sound of the door opening where the vacuum is kept and snaking to an exit an instant later.”

    1. Quinn is the only one of the current group that manifests this fear. The others do as you note with your cats and just stay out of the way or perch above the fray. We had one cat, long ago, who faced off against the cleaner, arching his back and swatting at it before retreating.
