Not Enough Treats
Karen Jo: You were meowing at me the whole time the turkey was warming up, but when it was ready, you only took two little bites before walking away.
It smelled better than it tasted. Besides, I had just had my elevenses. What's next on the menu?
Karen Jo: Pot roast.
Yuck! I don't like pot roast at all. When are you going to cook something that I like?
Karen Jo: I might be able to work in a steak soon.
That's more like it. Mom did find my nip ball. She always manages to find it. Once it took her a couple of days, but she found it. Mom isn't giving me all the treats I want.
Karen Jo: I got you to scratch on your platform instead of the couch by giving you a treat every time you scratched the platform. Lately you have been really overdoing it. You will scratch a little, then look at me, eat your treat, then scratch again. Every time I pick up my coat, you race to your platform and start scratching. The other day I was a couple of minutes late for work because of all the scratching and eating you were doing. So now I will only give you up to four treats before I leave for work or when I am busy getting ready for work. You can still have all you want when I get home or when I have a day off.
That's not fair. I am supposed to get a treat every time I scratch. Maybe you should just put all the treats in a bowl on the floor and let me help myself.
Karen Jo: I can just see the results of that. You would probably eat so many that you would barf them all up again.
I haven't barfed up any treats yet, even when you give me as many as I ask for.
Karen Jo: You still are not getting your treats in a bowl on the floor.
