This video makes me laugh more than it should; I watched it like six times yesterday.
(It’s totally suitable for work, in case you’re wondering.)
I had initally just planned on sharing it with you all today – that’s it.
But when I searched for it this morning, I came across a National Geographic article that uses the words “despicable” and “cruel” when describing the whole thing. A certified animal behaviorist even goes as far to say, “If you do it for laughs it makes me question your humanity.”
I suppose, yes, you’re startling your cat, which isn’t the kindest of gestures.
But really. We’re questioning someone’s humanity. Over a silly prank.
Because I’m pretty sure you can love your cat AND scare the crap out of them with a cucumber without losing your humanity.
Am I out of line in finding this video funny?
