A cat jumping at the sight of a cucumber may seem like strange behavior, similar to the cat peculiarity of sitting on the floor in a “box” created out of tape, but this response is based on instinct.

In order to pull off this cucumber prank, you must quietly place the cucumber just out of the cat’s line of sight. The sudden appearance of an object that wasn’t there before may frighten the cat as it turns to see what their owner is doing.

Cats have such an excellent sense of smell (and hearing), according to the American Association of Feline Practitioners, that “stress can occur due to strong or strange smells or sounds.”

Why Are Cats So Afraid Of Cucumbers?

Cats are extremely sensitive to their surroundings, so sudden, sharp items that emerge out of nowhere terrify them.

Cucumbers also have a snake-like appearance, which may be why people respond so strongly to this vegetable. However, please refrain from doing this at home as the cats will get anxious!
