I realize we eat cows and lots of other species but cats and dogs just crosses a line to me, what about you?

"Part of the celebration includes La Festival Gastronomico del Gato, (The Gastronomic Festival of the Cat) a cat-eating feast commemorating the time when early settlers were forced to survive on cat meat, or so the story goes. Dozens of cats are bred specially for the feline feast, the BBC reports.
Featured dishes include spicy cat stew and grilled cat with native huacatay herbs, and the meat reportedly has a flavor similar to rabbit.

I was hoping to drop in and post a cheesy one-liner. Alas... the topic concerned felines.

At least cats don't give one cancer.

It's considered wrong in this country. They are domesticated family pets. Other countries? They're vermin or akin to livestock. To each their own.

I guess.

I'll avoid my notorious statement about eating my friends.

I'll skip dining on my feline and canine companions.....

You don't have to eat them for that to happen. They donate frequently and copiously.....

It's also not advisable to eat them while they're bleeding.

I think it has to do with emotional attackment to certain animal species. In our culture cats and dogs are pets and very dear to us. In other cultures animals like cows may be dear to them or even sacred from a spiritual standpoint. Some cultures or beliefs won't eat pigs while others may eat dogs.

Meat is meat, animal life is animal life. I love my dog and I miss my cat that passed away, unless I was starving I wouldn't eat dog or cat meat because I'm emotionally attached to those animal species. However, another culture or anyone that would eat cat or dog meat isn't wrong just like it isn't wrong for us to eat cows or things that to them are sacred.

However, if you literally eat a ***** you are a cannibal. If you eat out a ***** that is something different.

Back when there were few other options, it was not wrong. But today when food is plentiful, there is no need to kill off our closest animal friends, our pets.

But, seriously, I think it's a silly, arbitrary societal taboo that it's not ok to kill and eat animals that we commonly consider "pets" like dogs or cats. I grew up on a farm and as a kid many of our livestock were pets to me. In the end, they're still just as delicious. :mrgreen:

I could never eat *****. There would be too much hair stuck in my mouth.

Also **** the OT, I want to talk about eating *****!

If food sources continue to become more scarce in the future then why not eat human meat? I mean the ones in the US dress out 200-300 pounds often for an adult human.

As long as it is not "long Pork", then to each his/her own.

One think I learned traveling the world, if it is good, it is good, never ask what it is.
