Okay, my husband and I are going to look and sound like the couple who sits in a playground and watches children. We do not have pets. --no dogs or cats to love us.
But, we buy treats for cats and dogs. We are the well-know throughout the neighborhood as that strange couple who loves dogs--all kinds. The dogs come running to get petted. Even the cats come and talk to us. One cat around the corner of our apartment complex waits for my husband to walk by and then he attacks my husband's ankles.
So yes, we have treats. We give them to the cats. In our area, many of the feral cats are capture, neutured and then brought back... The reason they are brough back is that if the feral cats are taken out of the area, then raccoons, squirrels, rabbits and other wild animals will slip into the city. The feral cats keep them away, which keeps away the rabies and other bad diseases.
They really like this Whisker Lickin's treat (creamy duo)... To them, it is almost like catnip. Almost. I suppose you now know why the little ones like us so much. Shhh! it's our secret.
