Treat Technique

Since I am an expert treat-eater, I thought I would share my treat technique today. The first step is the correct Look of Anticipation. You must purse your lips tightly together, as if you are about to whistle.
Next, open the mouth WIDE to take in as many treats as possible. Whiskers should be pointed up. You can use your paw to help guide the treats into the mouth.
Prepare to close the mouth to capture the treat inside!
Treat Face!
Finally, smile with satisfaction.

Freya's Staff said...

What a lovely smile!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

We love yoor smile Daisy. Um, is it our imajinashun or is Harley learning to tell little fibs?

weaverpat said...

Daisy, you are adorable!
My kitties are sitting here in front of the screen studying the technique so they get it just right! Better technique means more treats!!!

Mr Puddy said...

Aww !!! Daisy, Love your happy face in the last photo, I guess that's why you got lots of treat : )

Eric and Flynn said...

You have a very good technique Daisy, and a lovely big smile at the end.

Marg said...

Daisy, that was such a good lesson. We love the smile at the end the very best. Take care and have a great day.

Karen and Gerard said...

Love your big smile. I just throw them down in front of my cats and they gobble them up. Unfortunately for Spunky Doodle, they don't seem to agree with her stomach. I think they may cause her to vomit so I'm going to lay off them for awhile and see if it helps.

The Island Cats said...

Daisy, you make it look so effortless!!

Grace said...

Oh my dear, that last photo is a delight!

Forever Foster said...

The Meezers or Billy said...

you forgotted the "bite the fingers that feed you" tekneek

Helene said...

Ahh Daisy-I bet you have a PhD in teaching. Perfect technigue. Our cat that looks just like Harley trains the other cats to beg for him and then he moves in for the kill. Why do the work when you can train the peasants to do it for you...

Lovely smile too :-)

Max the Quilt Cat said...

The Cat From Hell said...

Wow! Daisy, I never knew any of this! Daddy makes me shake a paw before he gives me treats, but then he just puts them down for me.

Trixie said...

Wow Daisy you have perfect technique and a beautiful smile. I prefer my mom to put them on the table then I will eat them.

=^..^= said...

Love your Treat Face and Satisfied Face!

~Slash & Bronzy

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You do that really well. Gemini sort of sniffs first and Ichiro just gobbles up whatever he gets. Me--I don't eat treats except fishy flaks and those are life's necessity!

Winston, Kizzy and Tika of Two Cats and a Pug said...

Oh Daisy such a professional! Mum says that I just drool and then do the treat face. Apparently she claims I am a PIG when it comes to food. PFT I would say that my fat snorting canine is the PIG! Anyways, I do use the paw technique too, Mum thinks it is cute when us kitties use the paw!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Great technique Daisy, we are headed off to practice right now. We will need lots of treats cause we wants to make sure we are doing it correctly.

Katnip Lounge said...

Just four easy steps! We must stop the endless pacing and get back to basics.

LP said...

Technique? Steps? You are amazingly disciplined Daisy! We have been known to knock things over to get to treats.Once in front of us, they disappear like magic .Some times LP isn't sure we actually got the treat, it disappears that quickly:P

CatLadyDiary.com said...

That is awesome, I use my paw all the time to guide the treat to my mouth, but I gots toenails and sometimes Mommeh goes "Ouchie...(HBO words)"-David

Andy, Kiefer and Gus said...

Daisy,

My mom doesn't have any good treat ideas. The store stopped carrying the only treats we liked. Can you let us know what your favorite treats are and where your human gets them? We don't like the "kibble" like treats (you know the hard, crunchy ones). That's just like eating our foods.

Thanks

Gus

Bonnie Story said...

Absolutely adorable!! You technique is outstanding, each step is very important!! Humans do need guidance, it is true. Sending big smiles!!!!

TK and Squashies said...

I don't think you could be any cuter... Really, I can't think of one way.
You should give your photographer a treat too, for doing such a good job!
