Reddit user Bb345687 wrote, “The example that comes to mind is that once I was trying to train my cat to scratch her scratching post instead of my carpet, so I’d give her a treat every time she used her scratching post. She learned to expect the treat, though, and even after she was consistently using the scratching post, she’d come get me to get her treat. Now I just instinctively move towards the treat bag whenever I hear her using her scratching post.”
