There ain't no way to accomodate an asshole cat. If it's catching mice, or the kids like it, just toughen up. Otherwise, go catfishing.
If you want a bribe, go with a peppermint candy or even a can of cheap beer. I've raised alot of horses in my life and the number of them that wouldn't take a carrot, but would a candy, always surprised me.
