So, you’ve probably seen the youtube video below. It’s a compilation of people putting cucumbers behind their unsuspecting cats.
Then, the cat sees it and has some kind of primal, freak-out reaction.
Why are cats so afraid of cucumbers?
Turns out that the same curiosity that cats show towards things that move or make noise probably also makes them afraid of something strange placed behind them while they are eating.
It’s probably a deep-seated survival instinct, and the cucumber represents a snake or predator sneaking up on them while they eat, but it’s funny!
Cats + Cucumbers = Funny
These cats would probably have the same reaction if other unknown objects were sneaked behind them, but something about cucumbers makes it funny.
It’s no doubt why the cats & cucumbers video has become an internet meme. Not sure who created the video, (it’s been seen over 5 million times!) but there’s also this t-shirt tribute, “CAT VS. CUCUMBER: Quit Scarin’ the Cat, OK?”
My Cat Is My Valentine T-Shirt – Did you know that more than 60% of Americans celebrate Valentine’s Day? Think of all those dumb Valentine cards and chocolates, not to mention the tie-wearing boobs who line up at the supermarket on the way home from work to buy overpriced flowers and stuffed bears.
My Cat Is My Valentine
Let others know that your love is reserved for someone special who can’t kill a stripper and then empty your bank account (sorry, does that not happen to other people?) with a “My Cat Is My Valentine t-shirt.
And what is Valentine’s Day anyway? No one really knows the details, but it was one of those Pagan Holidays like Christmas taken over by the church to be respectable, and renamed for St.Valentine to sound legitimate.
Well, 800 years later people are throwing money around on over-priced “Valentine” menus (go the day before when everything is normal price!) and watching horrible romantic comedies… sorry, I’d rather not participate!
