I’ve Made a Terrible Mistake
Sometimes we pet owners make the terrible mistake of rewarding cute but wild behavior. Our dogs and cats definitely know how cute they are, so if a behavior is rewarded, they’ll keep doing it. This is what happened to a couple who rewarded their cats for sitting at their dining table. Then it got out of control.
The first time their cat sat in a chair at their table, they thought it was so cute and they set a plate with some snacks on the table for her, half-jokingly. Their second cat followed her example, and now they both sit at the dining room table for dinner! This couple has to set their dinner on the table every day now, or else these cats get upset. They even throw a fit when they have human guests over for dinner!
