While it’s lots of fun tossing treats to the meows and watching them chase them around on the floors, sometimes they just stare at the human blankly like they can’t figure out what in the world she is thinking. Mac, especially, will see a treat centimeters in front of her but be unwilling to edge forward and pick it up. If the human doesn’t slide it right up next to her, the treat remains uneaten. Putting individual treats in front of each cat not only makes a mess but it also takes time. Let it be mentioned that the morning treat is given just to buy time for the human to get the soft cat food prepared and divided into dishes before the wailing and gnashing of teeth begins. To keep the floor tidier and to reduce the chance the human will step on a treat and grind it into the rugs, the human has begun doling out the morning treats in a dish. That way the cats can take what they want. They still drag pieces off and leave them partially chewed on the rug, but at least there is less mess to clean when they are done. As you can see from these pics, they’ve been enjoying the novelty of noshing on treats from a dish with their peeps.
