Gourmet Pet Chef Kitty Karlyle must once again draw on her sleuthing skills when her best friend is suspected of murder.
Kitty Karlyle is sceptical when a pet psychologist tells her that her cat and dog are suffering from depression and recommends a pet-centric vacation. Her producer however thinks it's a great idea, and seizes the opportunity to shoot the next episode of Kitty's TV cooking show, The Pampered Pet, on location at the luxurious Little Switzerland Resort and Spa for Pets.
Soon after Kitty and her best friend Fran arrive, matters take an unexpected turn when a fellow guest is found strangled in his hotel room. When the police start digging, they discover that Fran's family lost their life savings in one of the victim's crooked money-making schemes - and Fran becomes the prime suspect. With her best friend under suspicion of murder, it's up to Kitty to get cooking and catch the real killer.

If dogs and cats could read, their holiday gift for two-legged friends would be Celines third romp featuring L.A. pet food TV chef Kitty Karlyle (after Lights, Camera, Murder!). Kitty and her sidekick, makeup artist Fran Earhart, find only trouble when Kittys annoying producer, Steve Barnhard, insists on shooting an episode of her show, The Pampered Pet, at the New-Age/New-Pet weekend being held at Little Switzerland Resort and Spa, nestled in the southern California hills somewhere. When Kitty finds the body of wealthy creep Victor Cornwall, its cherchez les chiens as well as cherchez la femme. Meanwhile, Kittys black Lab, Fred, and rescued tuxedo cat, Barney, go from blissful runs and rubdowns to super chow, including Kittys popular liver and oatmeal treats. Despite too many cartoonish characters, such as stuffy pet shrink George Newhart and egomaniacal chef Henri Moutarde, Celine amuses and then scares in a tense description of Kittys mountainside encounter with the killer.
