You might have laughed at the videos of cats getting Scared of Cucumber. They try to quickly disappear from the scene where Cucumber is present. But why cats get terrified of such a nice vegetable.
Cat as an animal, It is their natural instinct to stay away from the danger. As Cucumber is a long and slightly resembling a snake, It is in their natural program of the cat to escape from the scence.
When a cat sees a cucumber for the first time, the clueless cat may perceive the vegetable as some dangerous snake and try to quickly escape from it.
By the time the cat learns that cucumber is just a vegetable, not a snake, the cat will cease to get scared of cucumbers all at once.
