The Treat Physique
Most of you have probably noticed that I am a very ample Mancat. Mommy calls it the 'Treat Physique'. It is a lot of hard work getting enough treats to have a body like this, so I thought I'd share my methods with my friends so that you too can have a big treat belly.
Now most Mommies and Daddies (including mine) will try to discourage you. In fact, if your Mommy is anything like mine, they will do whatever they can to keep your weight down. It is a constant battle to get treats from health conscious caregivers, but it can be done.
The most obvious move, and one of the easiest, is to just look adorable beside a bag of treats. Mommies aren't stupid and they usually can do the math. Cute Cat + Treats = Give Cat treats.
If you're lucky enough to have a cute housemate, recruit their help. Two adorable cats is almost impossible for Mommies to resist. Actually pointing at and sitting on the bag of treats is a bonus. Be careful with this move, though. You shouldn't sit on the bag completely because that will conceal it and they may not notice them. The only drawback to this tactic is that if you're successful, you have to share.
A risky but, if successful, a high treat payout move is to not eat your entire serving of 'healthy' food and then sit there looking sad and depressed. It's a gamble only because your human may not fall for it and you'll end up being really hungry.
Fool them into thinking you're too thin. This can be done by posing behind large props or housemates with big butts.
Suck up. We all know how to do it and you know your Mommy better than anyone. Use toesies, the 'look', whatever works.
And finally, if all else fails, ask them. Make sure you do it loudly and repeatedly. It may take some time but if you're persistent, you'll be given treats just so you stop asking.
I hope you all can benefit from some of my treat-getting moves. Good luck, friends!
