Picks and Pans Review: Between the Covers
>NO FAUX PAWS
WHAT A CATASTROPHE! TO hear Bradford Telford and Michael Cader tell it, the typical domesticated tabby now has fur balls for brains when it comes to managing its owners. What's gone wrong? In The Rules for Cats (Dutton, $11.95), the authors offer guidelines that, if followed to the litter, will help a cat assert its rightful place as head of the household:
•Don't accept a Saturday-night left over after Wednesday. •Be frisky but mysterious. •Don't rush into laps. •Don't discuss any of your other eight lives with your owner. •Don't screech, don't hiss and certainly don't caterwaul. •For God's sake, don't come when they call you. •Break plants, break tchotchkes—but don't break The Rules.
