Are there things cats hate to walk on, Thomasina? I recently replaced my carpeting with hardwood, and my cats refuse to walk on it!

Yikes! I’m sorry your cats hate walking on your new floor. I’m pretty sure they’ll get used to it.
Cats are creatures of habit, and it takes us a while to accept anything new. And new floors would be a major adjustment. I don’t think I’d want to walk on them either! For one thing, they’d smell strange and not at all like my familiar territory. And hardwood floors would probably feel slippery when I was used to walking on carpet
