I was raised with the food equals love concept of child rearing. Food was not just to satiate hunger. It was used to express love as well. I guess I have those same feelings internalized for my pets. I love to give them treats. I know they like them too. And I feel like a bad cat mom if I don't have treats for them. They meow at me and look at me with those pleading eyes.
Just what is a Cat Mom supposed to do?
