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.

Forget the 'it's a cultural thing, another food source' for a moment... Live cats stuffed in burlap sacks is f'd up.

A good way to judge a nation is by how it treats it's animals. F China. F their shark fin soup harvest and their stupid 'ancient medicine'.

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.

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.

I love cats, but pretending that they're entirely domesticated is a little crazy. If they aren't socialized as kittens very few can ever be in a human home.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.)



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 know that. But that's not what I said. I said that making relative morality distinctions based on factors like color of skin or "is/is not a cute kitty" is stupid.

But if we're going to talk about people acting on other people, again, why can't we eat humans???

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.

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".

ShadowkahnCRX: lordjupiter: 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.

When you said:
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.

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 legitima ...

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Cats are useful predators.

Pigs are useful as bacon and footballs.

Let me guess, the truck was thrown by Tony Romo?

Freudian_slipknot: 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?


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),

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