    I was reading about this just yesterday. The cats see the shape of the cucumber and reflexively think "Snake!"

    This is one of the few things that I've seen on FB that actually made me laugh hard.

    i can understand pet owners sympathizing with cats but to see a cat maim a small mammal or bird and just fuck with it makes me lose any sympathy i have to cats

    domestic cats rarely, very rarely eat what they maim/kill. they are indiscriminate killers. feral cats, even though they are not native, at least have the basic need to kill, to eat

    Cats are predators. Really, really cute predators, but predators nonetheless. For millions of years, they’ve evolved to hunt and kill small animals, and evolution did its job pretty well. From their eyes to the tips of their tails, cats are lean, mean, completely adorable hunting machines.

    I laughed watching the video, but then I went to read about why cats are afraid of cucumbers. Several theories, but they all conclude with "it's cruel to the cat". The people doing this deserve the bite they will soon receive from the cat.
