About the Author
DENA HARRIS lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with her husband and two cats—to whom she is allergic (the cats, not the husband). She is the author of Lessons in Stalking, For the Love of Cats, and Who Moved My Mouse? A Self-Help Book for Cats (Who Don’t Need Any Help), which has been translated into six languages. She’s held editorial positions at numerous magazines and teaches writing workshops around the nation. Every cat Dena has owned has been full-figured, but they still look fabulous in their collars. They have yet to forgive her for testing the strategies in this book on them. Visit www.DenaHarris.com.

One reviewer mentioned they didn't realize there would be so much chatter about diets in the book, which is a little confusing given the subtitle is, "A Diet Book for Cats." For me, the media is so saturated with diets and eating plans that it's a laugh to see those diets parodied.
Looking forward to more books from this author.
Of course you can't take this book too seriously, after all, it is meant to be witty - and it is! I am giving a couple to cat loving friends as holiday gifts. Good food for thought, and a reminder not to over indulge our furry friends.
Then comes the quiz with 20 questions to determine what kind of a dieter your cat is ... comatose, OCD, ADD, chronic dieter or combination. Recommended diets are then suggested for each kind of dieter include the South Beach Diet, Eat Right for Your Blood Type, Catty Craig, Weight Stalkers and more. For example, Weight Stalkers is for your kitty if their goal is a healthy relationship with food instead of the meaningless one-night stands with rotisserie chicken they have been having It's not for your kitty if they don't like dealing with paid consultants whose job it is to be thinner and prettier than your kitty in hopes of luring them into buying two-for-one frozen mouse meal delivery packages.
Through the book, there are helpful hints and information such as the three simple ways to cut calories:
1. Eat less. (Ha ha - kidding!)
2. Break food ito small pieces - crumbs don't have calories
3. Eat with a friend. If you both eat the same amount, the calories each other out.
There is a bonus section in the back for cat owners on putting a cat on a diet in 21 easy steps and an "Ask Flabby Tabby" advice section.
Written with sarcasm and humour, it's a fun read!
