So now instead of being dinner they will be euthanized and thrown in the dump? Well as long as somebody somewhere feels better about that.

The irony? Every single one of those cats was kidnapped from a person who named it Chairman Meow.

Ok, I'm a cat owner. And a fan of cats in general. Worked in shelters in the past and all of that.

But what makes it ok if the load had been rabbits (which are also domesticated pets) and not cats? It's fine to eat some animals but not others?

Now, I'd be pissed if someone tried to eat my cat and all of that, but other than tasting pretty gross (most carnivores do, I'm told) what's the issue? Unless a person wants and loves a cat, it's just another animal, and we eat animals for food.

As someone said above, it's better than euthanizing them and dumping them because no one wants to care for 500 extra, unwanted cats.

Not to mention pigs, which are supposed to affectionate and intelligent animals, yet are the source of tasty, tasty bacon.

I love my cats, would be pissed if they were used as food, but all things on living things on this planet are food to something (or someone),

Good point. What would we do if you could make tasty bacon from cats?

I suspect that one day I might just become "crazy cat guy".

Cats are useful predators.

Pigs are useful as bacon and footballs.

Yes, America, not everyone sees cats and dogs how we see them. They're not house pets all over the world, they're either beasts of work or beasts of dinner. Stop thinking that everyone should think like we do.

In India, cows are sacred, and they feel the same way about us making burgers from them as we feel about Vietnam snacking on Fifi. Different cultures, different viewpoints.
 
2012-11-01 02:17:47 PM
It can be a difficult concept to understand that cultures differ in regards to which animals are considered as pets, eating, or both. To a certain extent I try to distance myself emotionally when I hear about people eating cats or dogs in other parts of the world. However, in many, if not most, instances, the way the Chinese kill/prepare cats to be eaten is beyond cruel, and there is no way I can ever be understanding of that or write it off as cultural differences.
Having said all that, I find it very encouraging that there are people in China that certainly not OK with cats being treated this way. I would have assumed this would be a non-issue over there.

Eat cat had seven sacks. Each sack had seven kittens. Each kitten had seven mittens. All in all, how many were going to China?

It would take a lot of urine spiked Coke to wash down 500 cats but i'm sure they got that covered in China.

Bullshiat.

Don't try and tell me that the bonds and personalities associated with cats and dogs are the same as other animals.
 
2012-11-01 02:19:56 PM
No surprise to me, i'm more surprised that they had a problem with it.

I got to spend 3 months in China and regularly saw truckloads of crated cats while travelling on the freeways between Wuxi and Suxhou. Never managed to get a picture of them though.
 
2012-11-01 02:20:30 PM
What is sick about it? Because they are cats? Well, in their culture they eat cats. We eat cows. What is the difference?

Is it because they were cramped in their cages? Ever seen how chickens are raised? They have it worse than those cats did.

I have no issue with raising cats for consumption like other livestock but this guy's attempt at deception raises questions as to how the cats were obtained.

Absolutely. As long as they're treated okay and butchered humanely I'm not dead-set against it.

But come the apocalypse I'll be feeding humans to my pets. What goes around, etc.

Who cares what those people claim? They're a massive minority. Those are livestock animals that do not have the same traits as cats and dogs. Anyone who doesn't see that is overthinking it. Try to housetrain a cow, and snuggle with it. Go ahead. Start a revolution. We'll wait.

Sheep are cute but I eat lamb, so nice try. Sorry to destroy your excuses.

Dualistic, all or nothing thinking going on here. Either all animals are food, or they're not, right? Wrong. Are all plants food? Think hard, now.

AMERICANS have those bonds. Few other places do. Many see cats and dogs as "they're gonna work, or they're gonna be food", which was how everyone thought of them for thousands of years. Cats and dogs being nothing but family members is quite a recent thing in the history of their domestication.

Again, accept the fact that others don't think the same way you do.

Hold up, everyone. lordjupiter has apparently heard news that, officially and finally, there are foods that are wrong and ones that are right.

Have you compiled a full list of what is appropriate to eat so we can make sure other countries conform to the only correct way?

Because rabbits are farmed for their meat just like cows, cats are not. Secondly a butchered cat with the paws removed looks exactly like a butchered rabbit. What was probably happening is fraud, the supplier was going to butcher the cats and sell them as rabbit meat.
