The Ultimate Valentine’s Day Tasting Menu for Cats, in Pictures

This eight-course feast is guaranteed to impress even the most finicky of feline dates.

Music is said to be the food of love, but when it comes to cats I prefer to think that food is a romantic pursuit in and of itself. After all, a feline will happily switch affections in seconds if there’s a chance of another human suitor offering up even a smidgen of a treat. So with Valentine’s Day approaching, it seems like the smart way to woo your cat is to aim for the tummy. Yep, here’s an eight-course tasting menu that will cause even the most hard-to-get kitty to swoon.

(Somewhat of a disclaimer: Cats can be allergic to many foods so please check before actually serving up a fine dining feast for your favorite furball.)

Make a positive early impression by providing your feline escort with a selection of freshly baked breads to snack on while perusing the menu. This smoosh-faced ginger is positively ravenous!

A salad of wild field greens laced with wheatgrass is a popular palette cleanser.

An impressive smorgasbord of sushi is imperative — although this dapper cat is aghast at the slapdash presentation on display here. The night is unlikely to feature an amorous ending at this point.

A pasta course? Sure, why not, just remember the all-important accompanying glass of claret.

Segue into a zone of heartier dishes by splurging on a whole fish — served al fresco if the occasion and appetite demands.

A plump grass-fed organic chicken makes for a fine entree course.

This lip-smacking long-haired date is proof that when it comes to dessert, every cat adores cake.

Finally, if all else fails and you find yourself with a particularly finicky feline eater, fall back on the classic pizza delivery tactic. It has never failed yet.
