Cat must pony up hugs before he gets a treat5/24/2012
Sometimes you just need a hug and no actual human is handy. One alternative: train your cat to give you a squeeze. This cat's owner explains his strategy on YouTube: "One day he was begging for treats and started rubbing my leg but I just ignored him. He wouldn't give up though ... I then sat down and he started rubbing against my face. I immediately rewarded him." Of course he did -- because that's awesome. Pining for even more affection, the owner started standing up, so now the cat must embrace him to rub against his face and earn his treat. Hug central, baby.
How affectionate is your pet?
