Cat Blog Friday



For this last Cat Blog Friday before Halloween...

... a cat reacting to a jack'o'lantern.

Wait, I thought the only vegetables cats were afraid of were cucumbers.

Why Are Cats Afraid Of Cucumbers? It May Seem Funny, But Here's Why You Shouldn't Pull This Viral Prank On Your Pet

Anyway, it's Friday, so got out and have a happy one :)

Jan: My cats are scared of everything. I've never tried the cucumber prank, but any loud noise, including my husband's approach, can send them jumping.

cube said...

Sandee: Thank you. I saw your staring kitty post. Too cute.

such a silly cat!

We once had a shoe spook a cat and it jumped that way. Not sure why, but it is funny for us to watch, not funny for them to go through.

MNL (Cactus Haiku) said...

That's a pretty good jump, lol.

cube said...

Kathe W.: They all have their own silly ways.

cube said...

Messymimi: Yes, there's no telling what will set off a cat. They do it well enough on their own without us humans adding to their paranoia.

cube said...

MNL (Cactus Haiku): Yes, cats are natural born acrobats.

Not much will scare our cats inside and I can't think of anything that does. We have an all black cat named Little Bear who had an accident with his tail so it is now about 5 inches long. I let him go out on occasion as he usually just walks down to the yard to eat some grass. Very often for no reason, something will spook him and his tail puffs up like a bottle brush. Kinda funny. I'll have to try the cucumber thing.

Kid: My cats are all jumpy but mostly at loud noises. Objects not so much. Little Bear's tail puffing up like a bottle brush is too funny.

That's a fun photo of the kitty and the pumpkin. I've seen those cucumber videos. We put out some cucumbers around our cats, they didn't phase them one bit. Now sometimes when there is a strange object on the floor they freak out (and we laugh) but I can see where it might be stressful to them.

Ida: I think it has more to do with something they didn't expect to see rather than assorted vegetables. Cats may be sneaky, but they don't like things sneaking up on them.
