Tricks for Treats

Dexter told Delilah that he is a pro at getting extra treats. He knows that Mom and Dad have said they can only have treats once a day, but there are ways around this rule.

Dexter said, for example, try one of the following:
  • Get on the counter and sit there looking smug while they yell at you to get down. Just as they get up to make you get down, jump to the floor. Then as soon as they sit down again, jump back up and repeat the process. Do this enough times and you will either get treats or get locked in the powder room for time out.
  • Lie down on the floor on your back near the cabinet where the treats are kept and expose your cute tummy. Make eye contact and put on your sweetest "putty cat" face. If necessary, purr or make sweet little meows and curl your toes.
  • If they are sitting on the couch or in the arm chair, get up on the back and start licking their hair. (Hint - this works best with Dad because Mom's hair is too long and gets stuck in your throat.)
