Does This Collar Make My Butt Look Big? by Dena Harris

Dena Harris has done it again.  Okay, I'll admit that I'm a fan. Few people can make me laugh as Dena can so when a review copy of her newest book arrived, I settled down for a good read.  I wasn't disappointed. 

In her newest book, Does This Collar Make My Butt Look Big? Published by Ten Speed Press, a division of Random House, Inc., Dena Harris tackles the topic of cat diets the way she covers everything else - with a huge dollop of laughter. Subtitled, A Diet Book for Cats we already have a pretty big hint that this book is written with tongue firmly planted in the cat's cheek.

What's amazing is how well she sticks to the diet book formula but writes it from the cat's point of view more than from the owner's. At the very thought of putting their cat on a diet most owners will stock up on bandages in preparation for the cat's retribution.

From lists and tips to multiple choice questions to determine which type of kitty is reading the book the book is a total romp.  And, yes, there's a cat food pyramid. Be sure to read it carefully. You would want to miss a single quip.

This sounds like a definite MUST read, especially for cat people. I can hardly wait to get my own copy and if it is anything like her other books, I will laugh my way through it.
