This cat getting terrified by a cucumber is my FAVORITE THING I HAVE SEEN TODAY, and I have some THEORIES about why this INCIDENT occurred.

While this video is HILARIOUS, the cat's terror is REAL. I have come up with some THEORIES about why this CAT is TERRIFIED of a CUCUMBER:

1. ALL CATS are TERRIFIED OF CUCUMBERS, but we humans do not usually FEED CATS SALAD, so we were not aware.

2. This cat used to DATE THIS CUCUMBER, and not only did the cucumber SHOW UP UNANNOUNCED, but it also managed TO GET INSIDE THE HOUSE without the cat knowing. (Can anybody say ""STALKER??"")

3. It is an ABNORMALLY LARGE cucumber.
