Does This Collar Make My Butt Look Big? A Diet Book for Cats
By Dena Harris
Relax, kitties! This is not a serious book that tells your human how to put you on a diet. It’s a parody book, based on dumb human diets and applied to cats… which just proves how utterly ridiculous the whole concept of dieting is! In fact, I think your humans may actually get a bit of insight into how silly diets like South Beach, Paleo, Eat Right for Your Blood Type, etc., really are — and maybe they will rethink their own attempts to lose a few pounds. There are some really funny moments here, such as comparing “Catty Craig” to “Weight Stalkers,” for example, and the instructions for humans on how to weigh their cat (it begins with the human weighing herself first and ends with her throwing the scale in the trash). I can wholeheartedly recommend this book for its humor — and no kitty will ever have to suffer through a diet because your human has purchased it.
