Hall: Cat Treats For Our Taste Buds

I realized the other day what a scam cat treats are, not to mention what a fool I have been. You're probably familiar with what those cat (and dog) treats are that humans give to animals - little nuggets of between-meal snacks. Pet snacks are among the ways we have found to ingratiate ourselves with the non-human creatures who share our lives. It is the way we befriend them and bribe them to like us. It's also one of the ways lion trainers persuade their animals not to kill and eat them. The trainers are trying to avoid becoming cat treats themselves/Bill Hall, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: What kind of treats do you give your pet(s)?
