Rather than having them take it from your fingers, put the treat down on the floor. They will catch on that they're not getting it from your fingers but on the floor. You could also use treat to teach a simple trick, such as sitting up or standing on hind legs by holding treat above their head, and when they sit or stand up, praise kitty and place treat on the floor.
