power of the treat

mom broke out the treats over the weekend

Chanel tried some self service

Even Junior showed up

Daiquiri decided the service was definitely too slow

well look who showed up

Mom has been saying that she wanted to try sitting on the floor and getting some treats out to see if she could get Goldfish to come up to her. Everyone here will show up for the shaking of the container - except for Goldfish who apparently was off somewhere. She finally showed up and was a little skeptical at first. Mom threw her a treat and she would get a little closer. After a few minutes she finally walked closer and took a couple of treats right from mom's hand. It is going to be a slow process, but mom is hopeful that if she keeps this up, Goldfish will get a little more trusting.


  1. Sitting on the floor wins them over, and then those treats. Let's hope she makes progress.

  2. Looks like everyone is enjoying the treats, even Goldfish. Glad she came up to you. It does take so long to get them to trust you. Have a good day.

  3. As you already know, slow and steady, to win a cat's trust!
    P.S. Goldfish is a cutie!

  4. We recognize Goldfish's posture of "I'm going to stand as far away as possible and still get that treat." She's really warming up to you!

  5. I think your mum will win Goldfish over. Patience and time are a true cat-fancier’s friends.

  6. That's great ! Yay, Goldfish, way to go ! Purrs

  7. Self-service is where it's at! I'm sure once Goldfish realizes she's getting hand fed treats, she will be a lot more amenable.

  8. Daiquiri reminds me of a certain brown-eyed girl around here ...
    Yours sincerely,

  9. Woohoo! We are glad to see that Goldfish will work for treats!


We love to hear from you.....
