Arthur does in fact dislike the smell and taste of garlic. He finds the lingering sweet/savory combination to be against his liking. In fact, not only does Arthur deplore garlic so much as to avoid it, but he also keeps a Pocket Pak of Listerine Cool Mint Strips handy in case one of his human hosts has had a healthy portion of Texas Toast and has absorbed the garlic butter into his or her bloodstream by the time Arthur feeds.

One recipe she loves to prepare and serve at her feeding parties is slow roasted garlic with crackers. She finds the flavor and the irony too delicious to resist.
