Kitchen Cat's Cookbook!!

Announcing DCIN's Fall Fundraiser!!

Does your cat know the difference between filet mignon and filet of sole? Does she help you in the kitchen? Do you have a dish that leaves your family and friends pawing for more?

This year, DCIN’s special fundraising project is…Kitchen Cat's Cookbook! This digital cookbook on CD will showcase not only our prowess in the kitchen but also the good taste of our cats. After all, we all know that there is no more discriminating palate than that of a cat!

To make this project work, DCIN needs pictures of your gourmet cats helping with your favorite recipes. We also need to have the recipes for your best culinary delights.

Shown in this post are the types of photos you could snap.

So grab that digital camera, snap a picture or two of kitty helping in the kitchen or dining room, write up your best recipe, and send them in. We are going to need high resolution digital pictures only for this project). All cats, sweet or civie, with us or gone ahead, are welcome.

We need recipes in the following categories:
  • Appetizers
  • Beverages
  • Breads
  • Stuffing
  • Desserts
  • Grilling: Marinades and Dry Rubs
  • Main Courses
  • Rice and Pasta
  • Sauces and Salad Dressings
  • Soups and Salads
  • Vegetables

We also want to include a section on handy household tips.

While we would love to see your cat and his prowess in the culinary arts, a photograph is not a must to submit a recipe. After all, some cats do have a reputation to uphold; they can’t let their fellow felines know that they help with the household chores.

For those who do submit photos, please include:
  • Names of beans and cats pictured
  • Age of cat
  • Sweet or civie, with us or gone ahead
  • If sweet, insulin and dosage or whether “off the juice”
We will need a copyright release from the photographer (or whomever holds the copyright) for all photos. We will gladly give copyright credit in the cookbook. Please submit the following with any photos you submit:

I, ___________________, the photographer or copyright owner of the submitted photograph(s), give Diabetic Cats in Need the right to use this (these) photograph(s) in its copyrighted digital cookbook, tentatively titled Cooking with Cats. In developing its publication, DCIN may resize, crop, or add effects to this (these) image(s) as needed. The copyright credit on the photograph(s) in the cookbook should read as follows: ____________________________________________

If there is one or more persons in your photo(s), DCIN also work with you on a model release. We will not need a model release for the cats; we assume they are willingly helping DCIN with this project.

*** We will also be holding a contest for the Cover Cat . . . we will release those details later***

Please submit pictures, the copyright release, and recipes to MommaOfMuse (Mel) at inkedcat (remove space).

Ok...I get the idea, but you really should change that kitten hamburger.
