The chinese eating cat meat

Post by jimee » Mon Mar 09, 2009 4:28 pm

Just reading this article on Sky News http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/World- ... d_In_China_

Apart from the part were they say some resturant owners steal peoples pet cats and serve them up in the resturant which I feel is out of order. Is there anything wrong in eating cat? That article is saying that its 'barbaric' and should be stopped, but eating this meat is a chinese tradition.

Plus, whats the difference in eating cat and eating a cow, or a pig? Is it that a cat is cute and you can play with it? They are all animals at the end of the day.

I own 2 cats, and the last thing I would want is to see them on my plate, but it is a different culture and something they have been doing for centuries, its a domestic animal to us, but just another type of meat to them.

I just dont understand why all these animal activists get involved all the time, is it just the conditions the cats are kept in? If so, then the conditions some of the farmed animals are kept in this country is just as bad.

The Chinese have a saying that goes "If it crawls on it's belly or walks with it's back to the sun". I think that covers pretty much everything out there.
I've no problem with eating cat though. The only thing I've ever turned down was tarantula legs!!!!!!!! Eeurgh spiders!

The Japanese don't eat monkey. But you might get served by a monkey in a Japanese restaurant.

Sung at the stretford end.

Park, Park, where ever you maybe.
You eat dogs in your own country.
But it could be worse, you could be scouse,
and eat dogs in your council house.

The germans call cats "dachhasen" (lit. "roof hares"), cos they taste so much like rabbits/hares.

Apparently once you've skinned it and taken off the head and tail it looks and tastes almost identical to rabbit (apparently the shoulder blades give it away if you know what you're looking for). The were popular during WW2 when villages ran out of other meat.

I'm currently reading Armageddon by Max Hastings. It wasn't just cat that was being eaten! :o

Agreed, love cats myself but in most of Asia eating a pig is considered just as wrong.

Anyway, IMO stamping on somebodies head while filming it on a mobile phone is more barbaric than eating cat. Saying the Chinese are more barbaric than the British is idiotic.
