Kate Gosselin's lawyers may have successfully gotten the e-book "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World," removed from Amazon after just two days, but that doesn't mean the damage is done. We've already heard about revelations of purported child abuse by Gosselin, and if newly leaked passages from the book are to be believed, it seems the reality star is guilty of animal cruelty as well.

"Kate left the family dogs in their cages behind the house for hours on end with no food. She never cleaned the cages. Jon would return to find them filled with urine, poop and puke. I saw vomit in them," writes author Robert Hoffman.

But Gosselin didn't just starve her dogs. Hoffman alleges she also beat the animals.

"She would knock them over the head and yell. The abuse caused Nala to become very resistant to Kate, so that any time she came around, Nala growled. After a while, Kate began to fear she'd be attacked, so she sent the dog back to the breeder," he continues.

If she hated animals so much why did Gosselin get pets? According to Hoffman, she only bought animals to have fodder for an episode of her reality program, TLC's "Jon and Kate Plus 8."

"The kids had been begging for pets for years but Kate was adamantly against it, until the show needed content for an episode."  Hoffman says once the cameras were turned off, the abuse would then begin.

These are serious accusations, and they only add to the mounting pile of lurid stories that have been spreading like wild fire through the public since Hoffman released his e-book.

In the e-book, Hoffman accuses Gosselin of a litany of crimes, but most notably, that she has beaten her children since they were toddlers. Hoffman claims he personally called Child Protective Services on Gosselin on two separate incidents, because she is "sick" and in "desperate need of mental help."

"I'll be sued by one or more parties before this is over," Hoffman wrote in his e-book according to Radar Online. "I'm writing this book for the Gosselin kids," he says.

While the book is gone, Hoffman insists there's plenty more to come if Gosselin wants to continue swinging at him.

"The other 90 percent of the material I possess will not be published, ever, but you can be sure that if I'm falsely accused of anything and drug into court, or called a liar by Kate Gosselin or her lawyers, this information will come out then, including photographs."
