One common type of viral video that’s been circulating around the Internet has been videos showing people frightening their cat. Sometimes this involves a cucumber and sometimes it involves wearing a mask and jumping out to scare their cat.

While this may look amusing to see a cat scamper off in fear, it’s probably no more entertaining than if your cat hired someone to dress up as a serial killer and chase you around with a chainsaw. In other words, don’t scare your cat on purpose just for your amusement. Your cat deserves a stress-free life.
