cat eater !!!
i watch a video on CNN yesterday and there is a report that particularly bothers me alot...

the people in some part of china are eating cats....cats !!!!!

my question first of all...are we running out of food ????????

why CATS ??? it seemed to me they eat anything that fly (not airplane but insects, ants, birds, grasshoppers, stuff like that, things that crawl like snakes etc, and tortise, squirrels, worms etc... they even eat monkey brains, dog meats, since there is such demand out there...people capture wild cats and those that will wondering outside their homes... how sick is that ????? next time coming might be human flesh ... yucks !

Well... My best answer for you is that it is a different culture and they do not define animals as only "pets" and only "food".

It does not make them bad. Its only cultural differences.

There are a lot of people who think the same way about eating any animal... There are people in the world who think eating cows is wrong or pigs... there are people who think eating peas and brussel sprouts is wrong. That is what makes people wonderful.... so many amazing differences.

they eat dogs in korea... a friend of mine is a master dog groomer... when she had her own shop she had a few clients that wouldn't stop bringing thier dogs in that would bite.. so she asked for recipes for dog (a woman from korea responded) and she put a big sign up "If your dog bites me..." followed by the recipes.

keep in mind my friend adores dogs...

See, it's those kind of stories that gross me out so bad, I just can't go back to eating meat...(My BF and I have been veggie for past 4 years)!

When I think about eating a cow or chicken, I just can't...I guess to some people dogs and cats are just like cattle (and they're not, sorry)....

Ugh...

They have cooked guinea pigs at the open-air market in Malaysia. I saw it on Jeff Corwin.

It's all in your perspective, I guess.

Yep, dog meat is called "Gaegogi" in Hangul (Korean).

Most younger Koreans do not eat it today and only a few of the older generation still do.

For the record neither DH nor I ever ate gaegogi while he was stationed in Korea.

Bulgogi is good though! Yum! (a kind of barbecued beef strips).

My mom saw that and told me about it. Wish she hadn't. Vietnamese eat dogs, I believe.

When I was in college I worked at a Chinese restaurant. The Chinese employees were all completely disgusted by cheese.

Yeah, I would agree with the cultural differences thing, after all, us americans eat meat that comes from cows, turkeys, chickens etc.

well... i guess i will just take it as cultural differences then... as of Jan 2007 i stop consuming meat totally mainly for health issue... i eat only veggies and seafood... i hope one day will eliminate seafood too...

i read this article it said that you need at least 72 hours to digest your meat in your stomach... i was thinking the meat sitting there so long would have alot of bacteria grown over ...yeee... well ta-ta to meat !
