So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know all about the poor cats who have been having the utter shit scared out of them.
Putting a cucumber by your cat, just to see them jump out of their skin and sticking it on the internet in the hope it will go viral is now a thing, because of course it is.
But despite it getting you a few retweets and maybe even making an ‘internet reacts’ article in the press, it will also cause your cat psychological issues.
Calgary Cat Clinic vet technician Lara Chan said:
What I actually worry about is long-term psychological problems. Some cats are quite delicate.
You’re terrifying them.
They’re reacting like this because they’re worried that something is going to hurt them. And you’re doing this in their house where you want them to be safe and secure.
So basically, grow up and treat your cat with the respect it deserves.
