Why are cats scared of cucumbers?
Cucumbers look like snakes
The reason why cats are scared of cucumbers is because they remind them of snakes. This is an evolutionary fear that has kept the feline species alive in the wild. Cats are creatures of hot climates by origin, and snaked are plentiful in hot climates.
In the wild, there are no vets and anti-venom shots, and cats don’t posses even the basic knowledge of how to deal with snake bites. They also don’t have fingers or thumbs, so they can’t bandage the area to stop the spread of venom to the heart.
The only way cats know how to deal with wounds is to lick them, which can only make things worse if they’ve been bitten by a poisonous snake. This is why cats are scared of cucumbers and anything that resembles a snake.
