Cats Being Scared By Cucumbers Is A New Internet Trend

Oh we are so feeble minded! Cat videos are wildly popular. Research shows watching them can improve our mental health. They also provide a great way to distract ourselves from the tediousness that is the work day.

If you're a cat video aficionado like myself, you've probably seen the Cats being Scared by Cucumbers video. I saw a bunch of people sharing it on social media yesterday and my husband sent me the video yesterday.

Who knew cucumbers could be so frightening...

You notice the cats are only being spoked when they are eating in almost all of the clips. Experts are urging people to stop with the cats and cucumbers trend. Cats feel very safe at their food bowl while they're eating. Scaring them at this time can really screw up their little heads.
