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.

Allie: Since SOME humans have been known to use the “F” word – the THREE lettered one – around me, perhaps I should have him read this!
Well, we’re not sure, of course, but we have a hunch that YRH and Binga might actually LIKE the Paleo Diet. We know WE would 😆

Diet is when you die before t 😉

likely to get silly and throw anything in the garbage 😉 heehee

I don’t wear a collar. I’m a nudist, so the only thing that could make my butt look big is a magnifying glass. Rocky, on the hand, well, I’d better not start talking about his butt. It’s huge. Massive. It would take up the entire comment form. – Crepes. PS. He’s giant.

The only diet in our kitty household is the “sea food diet” aka “seefood diet” which means we eat all the food we see! Meow and Namaste! ~ Pippy the Feline Yogini

Whew! We’re glad that we won’t hafta go on a diet if the human gets that book. Diet is one of those four letter words that should never be said.

We could tell right off that was a book about Persians. Though we loved the Persian kitty in ‘Over the Hedge’. xoxo

I know one cat in my house who needs to read it. Is this Dena’s latest book?

A good sense of humour is good, sounds like a great book!
