Mmmmm treats!

Theo & I have Mama trained very well when it comes to treat handouts. Here’s how it works (you can try it too!).

In the morning, Mama gets up and has her showers. When she is done with her showers, she makes coffee. This is when it is time to commence light meowing, just little reminders that Yes We Are Ready For The Treats. I prefer to jump onto the counter next to the sink to do this – Mom lets me, as long as I stay by the sink (she can wipe it off easy that way). Meow! Meow!

When she is done making the coffee, she takers her morning pills. Now it is time to start laying it on thick – louder meows, maybe a paw pat on the arm. When she puts the glass down, full-on treat demands must commence.

Since we are Bengals, we specialize in the Yowl. The Yowl always gets results, as it is pitched in just the right way to annoy human ears. We give several good yowls, and then Mom will go to the cupboard and dispense the treats. If Mom is being particularly difficult, Theo will stretch up his full height on her leg and put some claws into her hip. This is especially effective if Mom is wearing pajamas, since the claws go right through. Stab! Yowl! Yowl!

We are picky cats, so there are only a few kinds of treats we like. We definitely enjoyed being a tester for Lainey’s Pawtique, trying out the Chicken Tuscany and Salmon Tuscany Kitty Kookies. We highly recommend these! We also like Castor & Pollux Organic Chicken Treats.

We are discriminating kittehs, we have rejected many kinds of cat treats. But these are the ones we like best, and that Mama like best because they are healthy, safe treats for us. Yay treats!
