Overview


  • I've often been asked if I could publish the cat food data tables in book form, and I have now done so for the US foods only.

     

  • This page tells you more about the book and where you can buy it.


What to Expect


 

The book is a printed version of the food data tables. As a bonus, it includes the foods in brand order as well as in order of phosphorus content.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the food data tables in order of phosphorus content will continue to be available on the site, completely free of charge. The book is just an optional extra for those who tell me they print out the tables before going to the pet store and who would prefer just to take a book with them instead.

 


How to Buy the Book


 

There are two main ways to buy the book:

 

My Online Store


I have my own online store, which you can visit by clicking on the button below. Just add the book to your basket and proceed to check out.

 

Although this is my online store, I do not see your details at all, all the processing is done by a subsidiary of Amazon, so if you have any questions about your order, please use the links on the online store.

Amazon


The book is also available on Amazon in the USA and Canada. I am not making it available in other countries because many of the foods will not be available there:

 

 

Amazon USA

  Amazon Canada

 

If you're wondering about that adorable kitten on the cover, it's my silly boy who hadn't quite got the hang of using his Classy Cat Dish properly - he has mastered it now he is taller.

 

Some of you will want to know that I receive far less of the purchase price if you buy the book from Amazon than if you buy it from my own online store. Therefore, if you would like me to benefit more from your purchase, please use my online store. However, shopping with Amazon is probably cheaper for most people (free shipping is often available, especially if you use Prime, and Amazon may also discount the price).
