Yeppp. I've tried it... My cat's didn't like it... But you can try.!
because they were frighted or startled................ or they are scardy cats. LOL!
did you put a cucumber in front of an ant? why dont you try that?
Cats can be scared of dogs and things that pounce. They attack them to proctect themselves. Or... LARGE mice!
Their backs and tails puff up to make them look bigger.
Loud or unfamiliar noises, sometimes dogs, some cats are naturally shy so can be scared by their own shadow!
Wait till its asleep and then sneak up on it and grab it. That should scare the cat. If not just pour water on it. But...why scare a cat? It may be fun for you, but for the c…at some "scares" are traumatic which take a long time to get over. Cats, just like dogs and people, have emotions as well, and a particularly bad scare can send a cat cowering when that person is present, or a similar situation presents itself. There are far more humane ways in repelling or moving a cat, such as picking a cat up, or rubbing a repellent smell on any plants/furniture that you want the cat to leave alone. Citrus usually works well.
suck its arms in
Anything that seems unusual or threatening, or something that has previously attacked it.
most of the time cats won't eat things that are bad to them so if your cat ate a cucumber i think it should be ok.
Talk nicely and calmly to it, a distance away, and make yourself heard as you approach, talking to youself softly. Bend down and hond your hand out and make little kissing sou…nds to try to entice the cat to come out (about five feet away; give the poor cats some space!). If that doesn't work, get a treat like a piece of cheese, meat, fish or cat treat and do the same thing, calling them out sweetly. If that doesn't work, make a trail of that treat from the hiding spot of the cat to where you kneel, again calling it. If that doesn't work, keep the area the cat is hiding in calm (quiet, clean, only a few people around) for several days and try a few times each day. To be EXTRA sweet, put out a dish of milk and be away from its hiding spot for at least an hour, or throw it a particularly large hunk of meat or cheese. The cat should eventually trust you and come out.
indrduce your self dont be scared of it relax and give it a treat. If it is your cat in your home, then you can try to put nice looking shelves on the wall so the cat can get …from one to another like a staircase going up the wall. You can also go a step farther and at the top shelf, put a shelf near the ceiling going all around the room so the cat can walk around the room on the shelf. Make sure the shelves are anchored to the wall so they will not fall off when the cat runs or lays on the edge. This will calm most cats down enough to have a relationship with your cat on the couch next to you more often because they can be up above instead of under things. This has been known to help the cat feel more confident in it's domain. Give it time, you might be surprised what happens. -RJ
Because the cucumber is a shape of a snake and cats have a BIG fear of Snakes.
Yes, apparently cats are afraid of cucumbers when they discover them suddenly nearby. One theory is they initially think the cucumber is a snake.
cats aren't necessarily scared of the cucumber itself it's the awkward position and timing when it is placed
