Have you ever before checked out a cat?

I farted last night and my cat bolted out of the room favor the location was around to explode. I opened the fridge and the cat bolted. I stood up and the cat bolted. I sneezed and also the cat bolted.

You are watching: Why are cats afraid of cucumbers reddit

Cats aren't afrhelp of cucumbers. They are afrhelp of fucking EVERYTHING because they are skittish creatures that depfinish on their capability to GTFO out at the first authorize of danger. Danger indicates anypoint unintended. GTFO out first, and THEN decide whether it's actually dangerous or not.

If a cucumber 50% the dimension of your entire body showed up behind you for no reason, you'd more than likely be at the extremely least surprised.

Have you ever watched a horse? Many I know are even more skittish than any cat I've watched, except now you have the potential of flying hooves backed by a thousand also or so pounds. I've had a horse freak out from me putting his food in his bowl (somepoint he was expecting) because he looked amethod for a second.

It seems so far to be among 2 thing: 1: The cat isn't expecting the cucumber to be there. 2: The cat instinctively sees the cucumber as a hazard, favor a snake. From what I've watched and review, the even more "designer breed" a cat is, the much less this instinctual fear is most likely to expush itself.

Either means, it reasons serious stress and is very unhealthy to do to a cat. It's a typical example of abutilizing pets for our entertainment.

It is hilarious from our perspective, however you shouldn't condone it.

There's a nice post that talks about this from a location I don't commonly choose to quote

The sudden, unmeant presence of a brand-new object in a cat’s area have the right to trigger the animal's startled response, bring about the too much reactions caught in the videos, Goldman defined.

In other words, it's not the cucumber, but something they don't immediately recognize having actually "snuck up" on them. On the note of finding it hilarious, a cat behaviorist condemns you lol

"If you reason stress and anxiety to an animal that's most likely not a good point," certified pet behaviorist Jill Goldmale told National Geographic. “If you perform it for laughs it provides me question your humankind."

"If you cause stress and anxiety to an animal that's probably not a good thing,"

To be fair, the cat doesn't know you resulted in it. the cat thinks, "holy shit wbelow did that come from?!"
