I had set one out on my knee and she wanted it badly but refused to come back inside the gate.
I wondered what would win: Being captured but having a cheez ball…or being free with no snack.
She stood hovering over the gate threshold for a minute then took off toward the playroom. Aha! Freedom won. Except a minute later she came zooming in to grab the cheez ball and get out quick…but I caught her. So snacks won out over freedom—though she did whine a bit when her plan was foiled!
