Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Cat lovers are famous for pampering their feline friends. These fury creatures eat the best food, wear the most fashionable collars, and enjoy the best toys. Let's face it: most cats rule their owners, so when they turn up their noses at their food, what are we supposed to do? Start cooking!

Cat Treats shows readers how to prepare an array of tasty and healthful appetizers, soups, and main meal for their cats. All the recipes have been adapted for feline tastes and nutritional requirements, and are generally low in fat to help prevent excessive calorie intake. Whether it's breakfast with Tiffany (Meowsli) or Tabby Appeteasers (Manx Meatballs), readers are sure to find dozens of recipes for dishes that any cat will enjoy. Some of the recipes are for cats and people alike (Lick Your Chops Pork Chops), and there are a number of holiday meals like No Fool Pie (for April Fool's Day) and a Christmas Oyster Stew that will keep any cat purring through the holidays.

But Cat Treats goes beyond just providing fun recipes for Tabby. The book discusses how to use treats when teaching cat tricks, what to do if your cat is too fat, and how to deal with food-related disorders.

Unlike the former reviewer, I understand that cats can have dairy product in moderation (presuming one's cat has no lactose intolerance) so didn't find that aspect of the book disturbing. These are to be "treats" after all, not regular dining experience. Also, since I love to cook, the extra time spent on some of these treats is worth the effort because I will know exactly what is in them (unlike storebought treats)!

I really like this book. It has a lot of fun little facts and hints and also some good recipes. As for those who reviewed and did not like because of the ingredients, remember these are treats, not just everyday food, plus it adds variety to your cats diet not to mention how excited they all get when you feed them their homemade treats. My cats also love this book dearly (they told me so) Even the most finicky cats love most all of these. Definetly a great book and will recommend it to anyone!!

This book is as bad as it's companion, Dog Treats. Again with the ingredients I wouldn't feed a cat, what happened to the age old don't feed your cat dairy rule? These receipes call for eggs, cottage cheese, butter and yogurt, and who has time to cook brown rice and biscuits? I was hoping for healthy treats but these are anything but healthy. The receipes have few ingredients and seem simple until you realize they must cook for 45 minutes. And although the publisher says you can make them while cooking your own supper, I can't remember the last time I made Bombay Kedgeree with brown rice, flaked smoked mackerel, parsley, and hard boiled eggs! Yech!
