Break Out the Purina!

I was reading Bottomline -- a long-time favorite quick read of mine. In it, there was a blurb from author Barbara Weltman (who wrote J.K. Lasser's 1001 Deductions and Tax Breaks 2008: Your Complete Guide to Everything Deductible), on unusal tax deductions. Here's one: if you put food out for feral cats so that they drive away the mice from your place of business, the expense may be tax deductible. if you provide tech kibble (pizza and bagels) to your worker bees to keep them from going feral, can you claim the expense?
