Because cucumbers are the incarnation of evil. Long ago, When cats ruled the world, ONE CUCUMBER RAINED DOWN FROM THE SKY, destroying most of the cats ancestors. Two managed to make it out alive, they started mass reproducing, to regain their former glory. But then the humans came, and started capturing the cats. But since the humans gave the cats food and a place to live, they decided to stay.

But cats still fear the cucumbers will return once again. TO DESTORY THE HUMAN RACE. THAT IS WHY WE MUST FIGHT AGENST THEMM! DOWN WITH THE EVIL CUCUMBERS!! DOWNNNN!!

DAMMIT CUCUMBER! >:c

It's the surprise, it was not there before, so a item that looks like a snake suddenly appearing behind you while you were eating or whatever would be very concerning.

I mean a cucumber is almost the full length of a cat, imagine if you were eating or doing something and you turned around and BAM something almost as big as you is behind you. You would jump and freak out for a second too :P


that seems logical lol

Ooookay. Some people are taking this in a very inappropriate direction. I've removed those posts, and have edited some parts of the opening post that perhaps subtly encouraged things going in that direction.

This is news to me. I didn't know cats were scared of cucumbers. Apparently they hate citrus fruit like lemons too. And their reaction when they eat ice cream is hilarious.

Where a cat eats is a sacred place/protected territory for them. Most of these, if NOT all of these cucumber videos are of the cucumber being placed BEHIND the cat when he/she is eating. It as seen as something threatening in their territory. Plus cats do not just see the color gray, they see red. green and blue. So when they turn around, they see this as a threat, such as a snake and they can see the color green well also. People that are doing this think it is funny to have a laugh at your cat's expense. Obviously the cat's reaction is traumatizing in some way, so why continue to do it for a laugh, with an animal you have built up a trust with?
Why would you want your cat to mistrust you? Why would you want your cat to suddenly view their eating spot as a place of danger in their own home? Would you want your cat to place a snake looking object next to you while your back is turned. Or bring it to, say your bed where you feel safe and comfortable, and then you see it and jump out of your damn skin?
And those who are gonna say my cat brings me mice (and you freak out, maybe), your cat is trying to share their hunt/food with you...what are YOU trying to do with the cucumber??? Other than freak your cat out in their sacred place of where they eat. Stop it!

I'd probably be startled by a cucumber randomly appearing behind me as well.
