Situation #1 concerning the treats on the counter: I would ignore them. I am a very fussy eater, and just when the mom is convinced I like a food because I ate it days ago, I refuse to eat it anymore. She opens cans of my "favorite" foods just for me, and I walk away! And laugh up my sleeve in a corner. I couldn't eat the treats because I'd rather keep her guessing, and a little frantic. I'd love to see her in the store trying to figure out what I will eat!
Situation #2 about how I handle the mom having a bad day at work. Well, I had a GOOD day, so what's the fuss? I ate when I wanted, napped when I wanted, played when I wanted. If she wants to join in the fun, that's good. I'd enjoy some scratches and purrs. If that makes her feel better, that's even better!
Situation #3, having guests in the house. So long as they don't sleep in my favorite spot, I'd treat them like family. I'll be expecting scratches and playtime. Maybe some treats if they can figure out which ones I'll eat!
