The Lure of Treats? or Habits?
For years, I have taken to grooming ET daily. He started off hating being groomed until he has gotton used to being groomed daily. He gets treats only during grooming, its habits or the lure of treats?
Lately, I have slackened in grooming, I was busy, I skip some days. On days I skipped, ET meowed incessantly, following me around the house, and I thought he was hungry, time for lunch anyway, and so I fed him, but he continued following me around the house, meowing away. Hubby said "is there something you haven't done for him?". Oh, I haven't groomed him. So, I did just that, he stopped meowing and following me around the house.
This happen a couple times lately, so I'm assuming its the lure of treats, cos he gets it only when I groom him and when I do carrier training with him. It can't possibly be cos he's taken a liking to being groomed?
Is there something that your cats will insist that you do before he stops harrassing you other than meal time?
