Maybe he's full or isn't particularly partial to those treats?

Maybe being with you is reward enough?

try popcorn!!!
have a bowl of it with you and as your munching away he will get curious and want some just keep a good eye on him though
the first time i did this with skeet he liked it so much he jumped in the bowl and rummaged to the bottom to get the really good bits i was "obviously hiding from him"
this is how skeet learned if he wants all the popcorn to himself........
jump in the bowl
mummy doesnt want it after that

I've been having porridge for breakfast of late. I started letting my birds clean out the skerricks of my bowl after I'd finished with it. They love it! Now, Charlie likes to fly onto the table whilst I'm still eating to try to get at his porridge early! He hasn't learnt yet that I will keep picking him up and putting him back on his gym.... and that when he does that, Janey will always get first go at it!
