Of course I had to try it on Linken.
Do you think he flew into the air, like the others?
Nope. Nothing. At most, a WTF reaction, and then he just walked away.
You're not playing right, Linken!
Before you go trying this on your unsuspecting cat, the 'experts' are now saying that we shouldn't be doing this.
Which I, of course, did before I realized I shouldn't.
But I did make sure he was in an open space, where he couldn't hurt himself if he did jump (she rationalizes to herself).
And not only are we being mean, by intentionally trying to scare our beloved fur babies, another reason the cat may jump at the sight of the cucumber is because it possibly associates it with a snake, or other predator, according to IFLScience.
But ... not my Linken.
No interest in Cat Circles.
Not freaked out by the cucumber.
Maybe he's a dog, and is just waiting for the right moment to tell me?
Yeah. That's it. He's a dog.
Or, he just is what he is ... one Badass (Chuck Norris, who?) Cat!
