What is wrong with "Mijn kat heeft (veel) angst voor de stofzuiger"?

It sounds just as stilted as saying "My cat has a lot of fear for the vacuum cleaner". It's not strictly wrong, but also not a natural translation.

How do you know when to put 'voor' and when to put 'op' ? Please reply with examples, I don't understand grammar terms.
