My Treat-Obsessed Cats

All the cats go out outside every day. Yes, I am a cat herder, several times a day and especially at night! When Monster and McCoy first started staying out most of the day, it was hard to get them to come back in. At the time, it seemed like a good idea to bribe them with treats to come back inside.

Now they are completely obsessed with getting treats every time they go out and come back inside. McCoy is especially obsessed, the second he comes back in, he immediately runs to check “the magic box” to see if any treats are in there. Sometimes I think he goes out just so he can come back in and get more treats! We’ve cut back the amount of treats they get, but I’m afraid to stop completely. Can cats have OCD, too?
