Cats Freaking Out Over Cucumbers Is The Mashup You Need To See Now

This brings the saying "cool as a cucumber" to a whole new level.

Cat compilations aren't a new trend, but pitting cats against cucumbers is, and it's everything we've ever wanted.

There's no exact science behind why cats are seemingly terrified by cucumbers, but Roger Mugford, an animal behaviour specialist, told the Telegraph it probably has less to do with the cucumber and more about being startled while eating.

"I think that the reaction is due to the novelty and unexpectedness of finding an unusual object secretly placed whilst their heads were down in the food bowl," said Mugford.

What's the weirdest thing you've ever been surprised by?
