Apparently, All Cats are Scared of Cucumbers

There’s a new craze sweeping the world of internet cat videos, and it’s the most random hilarious thing we’ve ever seen. Apparently, there’s something buried deep within the instincts of all cats that cause them to panic at the sight of an unexpected cucumber. Don’t believe us? See for yourself.

Cat owners across the internet are testing the newest theory: Cats are scared of Cucumbers.


All you have to do is place a cucumber behind a cat while they eat, and wait for them to notice.


It happens every time, without fail.

They don’t see it at first, and then suddenly… CUCUMBER!!!! Run for your lives!

Sometimes, the cats are a little brave…

… and sometimes, they are ready for a fight!

The trend started on Reddit, where it’s suddenly become the fastest growing section of the website:


Some cats are getting used to the cucumbers… but still not completely trusting them!

Why does this happen? Could it be something connected to evolutionary biology, some innate fear of predators that look similar to cucumbers? Maybe they look like snakes?

Or maybe the truth is deeper: maybe there truly is something sinister and evil about cucumbers, and the cats are trying to warn us.
