One's pussy cat deserves A La Cat.
Pussies purr with pleasure at the merest whiff of "A La Cat"
catfood. Made from the finest meats,

CATFOOD AND SAGE MEATBALLS
750g of "A La Cat" catfood. 12 sage leaves. 90g butter. 30g parmesan.
1 medium sized onion. 100ml Marsala wine. Salt. Black pepper.
METHOD: Mix the meat with the sage leaves, onion, butter and parmesan. Season,

grungy balls and brown. When cooked, pour the wine over and serve in the savoury
"A La Cat" gravy.
