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.

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),

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wasilla Hillbilly: the way the Chinese kill/prepare cats to be eaten is beyond cruel,


Can you follow up on this. The only thing I've ever seen related is some video that was viral ~ 8 years ago of some guy killing a smallish cat on a restaurant food preparation table. I never thought much about it. He hit it twice, the animal went unresponsive and he started in, end of video.

Is it the hacking them apart thing? No worse than poultry or slicing a cows neck to kill it ( the only way to make "kosher" meat, so entirely common ).

This. I'm sure if you asked the general populace about eating cats in China they'd probably be offended. Not as offended as we would be but I bet the typical Chinese person doesn't opt for chopped kitty in the meat aisle.

Also rabbits are assholes. Who thought that they'd make good pets? They do, however, make a good stew.

People here in the states eat opossum, squirrel, deer and a whole lot of other non-farmed animals.

That argument doesn't work.

Now, the fraud is a problem, but random food fraud in China doesn't warrant a news story anywhere but China. The issue at hand is eating cats, which is, in itself, acceptable in that culture.

I only ask why we care what animals they choose to eat. If they want to eat disgusting, overpopulated carnivores, let 'em.

blah blah blah trite appeal to subjectivity blah blah blah

"Don't eat cats and dogs, they're not like cows." It's not hard. That's all you need to know when discussing the topic of eating cats and dogs. Don't do it. And again, if you can't see the difference between a cat and a cow, bring a cow into your house as a pet and live on a webcam. Put your money where your mouth is.

You can house train a pig. They're highly intelligent, as animals go, and very affectionate. By your standard, they should be off the dinner table.

The only reason you're OK with eating livestock animals is because you're used to the idea of eating them. And that's fine. I'm used to the idea of eating them, and do eat them, probably more often than is good for me, and I don't eat cats.

But I also don't run around trying to justify my stance with anything more than "because that's what I want to do." There is no logical argument supporting the idea that it would be any more immoral to eat a cat than a pig. There is only an emotional argument, and once you start arguing from emotion, it depends on what the individual arguer happens to be emotionally attached to. That you, yourself, have not gotten emotionally attached to a pig does not mean that no one else is allowed to. That you, yourself, have gotten emotionally attached to a cat does not mean everyone else has to.

Or, in short, the world does not revolve around you.

The Chinese are gradually realizing that it's a bit of a dick move to breed companion animals and then turn around and eat them when many food alternatives exist. So they intercept these trucks. There's at least one lady who single handedly looks after the rescues. She has hundreds of cats and dogs.

You start breeding cows for pets (killing the big ones off, letting the little ones reproduce), I'll start breeding cats for food (killing off the skinny ones and letting the meaty ones breed). We'll check back in 500 years and see how it is going.


The dogs I saw in China were a lot different than the force bred ones from Europe that went to America. Never saw any cats.

lordjupiter: Freudian_slipknot: It's fine to eat some animals but not others?

Yes.


Absolutely.

No one should be eating dogs, I don't care what your farked up backwards hillbilly 'culture' says, because without dogs there is a very good chance we wouldn't even be human, for fark's sake. 100,000 years of mutually beneficial co-evolution, and you want to eat them? Fark you.

I feel less strongly about cats, but there's that whole "protecting the granaries from rodents" theory
and I guess I'm ok with that. So don't eat cats, either. Everything else is fair game (ha ha).

Except Octopuses. They don't taste anywhere near good enough to justify eating one of the coolest, smartest creatures in the ocean.

Hell, I'm starting to get on board with the idea of not eating any mammals at all. Birds, fish, fark you guys, you creepy delicious beasts. I'ma eat your dumb asses. (again, except for you Octopuses. We cool.)

ShadowkahnCRX: lordjupiter: Noticeably F.A.T.: lordjupiter: Don't try and tell me that the bonds and personalities associated with cats and dogs are the same as other animals.

Ok, I won't. Not because it isn't true, but because you have decided it isn't, so what's the farking point?

Well why waste your time posting at all? That mere act doesn't make you right, either.

Savian: People also claim to bond with cows, pigs, goats, etc. Sorry, but your animals aren't sacred.

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.

You can house train a pig. They're highly intelligent, as animals go, and very affectionate. By your standard, they should be off the dinner table.

The only reason you're OK with eating livestock animals is because you're used to the idea of eating them. And that's fine. I'm used to the idea of eating them, and do eat them, probably more often than is good for me, and I don't eat cats.

But I also don't run around trying to justify my stance with anything more than "because that's what I want to do." There is no logical argument supporting the idea that it would be any more immoral to eat a cat than a pig. There is only an emotional argument, and once you start arguing from emotion, it depends on what the individual arguer happens to be emotionally attached to. That you, yourself, have not gotten emotionally attached to a pig does not mean that no one else is allowed to. That you, yourself, have gotten emotionally attached to a cat does not mean everyone else has to.

Or, in short, the world does not revolve around you.


When did I ever say the world revolved around me? This has nothing to do with me. It's biology and evolution of man/animal interaction.

The pig is a borderline stock animal, I know. But it still lacks many of the characteristics of the cat and the dog. This is problematic for some, and not for others. I make my own choice in that matter. But the point is that it is OBVIOUS that a cat or a dog is VASTLY different from many other animals in MANY ways that make the harvesting of them as food commodities far MORE barbaric than doing the same thing with animals more prone to livestock traits.

Tolerance of consumption of a close companion to humans isn't a more enlightened perspective. It's more barbaric. It's eating your allies. It's a violation of our evolutionary covenants with those species.

Actually my wife feeds several feral colonies and they're nothing like you describe. They're better left to live on their own in their colonies, but that still doesn't make them the same as farking bobcats. That's just moronic.

When you said:

It is obvious to you. And you expect the rest of the world to find it obvious too. Or, you want the world to revolve around you and your beliefs.

Tolerance of consumption of a close companion to humans isn't a more enlightened perspective. It's more barbaric.

It's neither. Either eating animals is wrong or it is not. Making distinctions about which animals get pardoned due to some people having them as pets is no different from making distinctions over who has to be slaves based on whether or not they're black. Slavery was not less immoral because black people were different from white people. Slavery was immoral because slavery is immoral, no matter what color the slave is. Eating cows is not less immoral because cows don't look like cats. Either it is equally immoral because eating animals is immoral, or it is equally moral because eating animals is not immoral.

As for evolutionary covenants with cats - please. You might have an argument regarding dogs because humans and dogs really did evolve symbiotically, but humans and cats did not. We keep cats because we like having them around. We owe them nothing, from an evolutionary standpoint.

Again, as has already been explained to you, it is understandable that you don't want to eat cats. I don't want to eat cats either. But judging other cultures that do is simply not fair. The moral judgment in this story should be in how the cats were treated prior to slaughter. Stuffing them in bags and tiny cages is cruel and unnecessary. But eating them is no more or less cruel than eating a pig. A cat does not have any more legitimacy in its claim to life than a pig, or a human does.

Freudian_slipknot: 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.


Because cats (and dogs and horses) have been used for purposes other than food since they were first domesticated. 10,000 years ago we used horses as transportation and draught animals; dogs for herding, guarding, and war; and cats to kill vermin in the home or grain stores. And all three as companion animals. You could throw in camels, donkeys, mules, reindeer, water buffalo, and elephants in the same category as horses. Every other animal kept eventually became food for us. It's just been seeded into the human psyche over several millenia that eating those is kinda sorta messed up, seeing as how they've been essential to early human livelihood.

Plus dog meat isn't all that great. Either I got tricked into eating mediocre dogmeat or Asians eat it just to get a boner or something, I dunno. I can assume cat's not particularly good, since obligate carnivores (sans fish) aren't the tastiest of meats. No qualms about horse. Y'know how venison is like really lean beef? Horse is like really lean venison. Tasty as all get out.

lordjupiter: Freudian_slipknot: lordjupiter: Just because I believe that the differences in many animals is clear enough to make distinctions between "food" and "not food" doesn't mean I'm responsible for fixing everyone, or satisfying you.

Nope, still looking for a list of the "acceptable" animals to eat, just so we can make sure no one offends one dude on the internet who is the arbiter of correct thinking.

blah blah blah trite appeal to subjectivity blah blah blah

"Don't eat cats and dogs, they're not like cows." It's not hard. That's all you need to know when discussing the topic of eating cats and dogs. Don't do it. And again, if you can't see the difference between a cat and a cow, bring a cow into your house as a pet and live on a webcam. Put your money where your mouth is.

LOTN: Wasilla Hillbilly: the way the Chinese kill/prepare cats to be eaten is beyond cruel,

Can you follow up on this. The only thing I've ever seen related is some video that was viral ~ 8 years ago of some guy killing a smallish cat on a restaurant food preparation table. I never thought much about it. He hit it twice, the animal went unresponsive and he started in, end of video.

Is it the hacking them apart thing? No worse than poultry or slicing a cows neck to kill it ( the only way to make "kosher" meat, so entirely common ).


Perhaps I misspoke. I have no way to verify how widespread the practice actually is, but I've seen and heard of more than one account where they skin the cat alive and throw it into boiling oil still squirming and attempting to scream. This is one of the few things in my life that I honestly wish I could "unsee".

Now, the fraud is a problem, but random food fraud in China doesn't warrant a news story anywhere but China. The issue at hand is eating cats, which is, in itself, acceptable in that culture.

Is it acceptable? I lived there for years, heard lots of types of animals for eating, never heard cat. Granted its a big country and I'm not an expert on their cuisines.

If anything, its provincial (meaning some people do accept it and others absolutely do not) or this is food fraud as you mention.

I suspect most of my local coworkers and friends there would not be crazy about eating cat.

Logically there isn't a particular reason we can't, beyond the fact that we have decided (and are in a position to decide, being the dominant species) that humans have a greater claim to life than other animals, and that humans have the right not to have that life taken from them without consent. Or, in short, the top dog in the room makes the rules. Which brings us to why you're being an idiot. You are not the leader of China. You are not the cultural or moral compass for China. You are, frankly, nothing to China. So to sit on your high horse denouncing China for what China does to a cat while you yourself are doing the exact same thing to a different species, is asinine.

Logically there isn't a particular reason we can't, beyond the fact that we have decided (and are in a position to decide, being the dominant species) that humans have a greater claim to life than other animals, and that humans have the right not to have that life taken from them without consent. Or, in short, the top dog in the room makes the rules. Which brings us to why you're being an idiot. You are not the leader of China. You are not the cultural or moral compass for China. You are, frankly, nothing to China. So to sit on your high horse denouncing China for what China does to a cat while you yourself are doing the exact same thing to a different species, is asinine.



So, we should be tolerant of their morality, and they shouldn't be tolerant of ours.

Thanks for clearing that up.

ShadowkahnCRX: lordjupiter: No, that's all pseudointellectual rationalization and total bullshiat. fark cultural relativity in some cases, including this one. You don't even understand history and the human/cat relationship, so get off your high horse.

Whereas "I like kitties so people who eat them are bad!" is just a bastion of logic and reason.

And your slavery analogy is totally inapt.

Inept, would be the word you're looking for. You'd still be wrong if you used it, but at least you'd demonstrate a working knowledge of English.

Dualistic thinking and reductionist argumentation. A case can be made for anything by some form of specious logic

As you have aptly (see how that word is supposed to be used?) demonstrated in this thread.

yet some reasoning is better than other reasoning.

Brilliant deduction, Watson.

Some facts are more important than others.

Oh? And I take it you are the arbiter of fact-ranking?

You can't merely say slavery and eating animals are the same concept

I didn't.

and therefore equally black and white. They aren't.

I come from a culture that treats dogs and cats as companions to care for and love. Dogs and cats are cherished members of my family, so I am very uncomfortable seeing them treated otherwise. I see the cats in that truck and I just see other versions of the little friend who nestles in my arms while I sleep. It hurts.

Yet I am a carnivore, and by my moral beliefs it is acceptable to eat animals for food (the less intelligent/feeling the animal, the more acceptable). So, while I abhor seeing cats and dogs treated as food due to my own background and experiences, I accept that other cultures will have different opinions about the role of such animals.

(Note that many people who are offended by the practices in TFA refuse to eat animals at all, which is indeed morally consistent.)

Inchoate: I come from a culture that treats dogs and cats as companions to care for and love. Dogs and cats are cherished members of my family, so I am very uncomfortable seeing them treated otherwise. I see the cats in that truck and I just see other versions of the little friend who nestles in my arms while I sleep. It hurts.

(Note that many people who are offended by the practices in TFA refuse to eat animals at all, which is indeed morally consistent.)



It's dietetically consistent. It's not necessarily more moral than eating some meat but not others.

I do NOT accept that the mere existence of an "opinion" or a "culture" means I have to respect it. Some opinions and cultural practices are more harmful and objectionable than others. And for those who play the "who are you to judge" card, it's not about me, and I'm not the only one with these views, so that's not it. As Bill Hicks would say, "I'm me, you're you, now shut the fark up".

Too many people take the lazy shortcut of "logic" that's based on extremist "either/or" continuum thinking. You either believe this EXTREME, or you have to believe the total opposite EXTREME. Or else there's some contrived "appeal to middle ground" which is also not necessarily true, either. Reality and logic require more work than just settling on arbitrary points on the extremes, or dead center.

I own a cat. I see no problem with eating cats. I find the argument that they are "companion animals" or some such completely spurious. I may find it hard to eat my own cat, but then I would find it a little hard to eat any animal I knew. But people who keep pigs and chickens get used to that.

As a matter of fact the "companion animal" argument applied to cats is laughable as they are famously independent. Mostly they have been kept around by humans to catch mice, and the habit of keeping them as pets is only about 200 years old if that.

The question of whether eating people is wrong is a completely different one. I don't really see the relevance. But as it goes it must be pointed out that it has been done in various places and times. Far more widespread in history than people believe - common in famines. You just have to get hungry enough. Or believe it enables you to capture your enemy's soul. Obviously we don't want it to be acceptable or legal for the same reasons we don't want murder to be acceptable or legal. But there isn't anything inherently immoral with the idea of eating a person. My friend made a will asking us to eat her brain at her wake. Apparently it has been tried and found illegal, but never mind. I still have that will around here somewhere for safekeeping ... just in case ...

See how stupid that sounds?

Dude, enough. You're going into retarded pseudoscience and weird bestiality-tinged rants about how "we evolved together, so we should always be pals". Anemones and clownfish evolved together too, but anemones will eat clownfish as fast as they eat anything else if it wasn't for the mucus layer protecting the clowmfish.

And, again, not all cultures have domesticated dogs/cats or developed with either of them. You're still going "WHY CAN'T EVERYONE DO WHAT I DO?!" towards people who've NEVER done what you do. Don't be an armchair anthropologist.

Sorry that I use logic and not emotion to respond to what animals the many various people around this huge world who developed in different ways happen to eat. Unlike you, I understand that not everyone sees things the same way.

I'm well aware that cat meat is not universally eaten or accepted in China and that it is controversial or even taboo in many parts of the country. Thing is, even a relatively small portion of the Chinese population equals millions of people.

Wasilla Hillbilly: LOTN: Wasilla Hillbilly: the way the Chinese kill/prepare cats to be eaten is beyond cruel,

Can you follow up on this. The only thing I've ever seen related is some video that was viral ~ 8 years ago of some guy killing a smallish cat on a restaurant food preparation table. I never thought much about it. He hit it twice, the animal went unresponsive and he started in, end of video.

Is it the hacking them apart thing? No worse than poultry or slicing a cows neck to kill it ( the only way to make "kosher" meat, so entirely common ).

Perhaps I misspoke. I have no way to verify how widespread the practice actually is, but I've seen and heard of more than one account where they skin the cat alive and throw it into boiling oil still squirming and attempting to scream. This is one of the few things in my life that I honestly wish I could "unsee".


You made me curious, so I poked around a bit. Did you witness this yourself?

The Chinese do the same thing with rabbits, you buy one fresh on the street and they skin it alive. You take it home in a box, suffering and crying - because the twisted mind of the mainland Asian believes that suffering makes meat taste better.

This is a sick culture, from top to bottom. We will face this people as an enemy someday - a people that place little value on life of any kind.

I don't understand how Americans can be so up in arms about this when they contribute to the abuse and slaughter of cows, chickens, pigs, sheep, and numerous other domesticated animals. You think cattle and chickens are treated any better in America than they are in China? I don't see any difference between eating cats and eating chickens. The double standards are just stupid. If you eat meat you contribute to the abuse of animals, end of story. Maybe some animals are treated worse SOMETIMES in China, but from my experience it's the exception, not the rule.

KatjaMouse: Slaves2Darkness: 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.

This. I'm sure if you asked the general populace about eating cats in China they'd probably be offended. Not as offended as we would be but I bet the typical Chinese person doesn't opt for chopped kitty in the meat aisle.


Yeah, pretty much. Though they'd probably be offended that you were trying to sell them sub-par 山寨 meat. It'd be like giving you a cheap cut of pork and calling it beef steak. By the way, they totally do that here.

"Beef Extract" Additive Used To Change Pork Into "Beef"


Anyway, Your average Chinese person likely wouldn't be irate about the plight of kitties, though this is changing with the current (wealthier) generation. The kids today see dogs and cats more and more as friends and family, and just have more compassion towards animals in general.

What does that tell us? I'd say that compassion for animals is directly correlated to how easy and spoiled your life has been.

Conversely, poor people are psychopaths, lacking empathy.

You haven't had any coherent argument other than "I like cats." You posted that repeatedly.

And he's the troll?


Oh he's not alone. I'm a troll too. Apparently, lordjupiter decides you're a troll if you don't agree with him.

lordjupiter: Try to housetrain a cow, and snuggle with it. Go ahead. Start a revolution. We'll wait.

lordjupiter: machoprogrammer: Who gives a fark if they eat cats and dogs in China?

Pigs are more intelligent than cats and dogs and are just as "cuddly". Yet people have no issues eating bacon. Each culture is different and as long as they're not eating humans, who cares?


And why is it wrong to eat humans?
