  • Meat is meat. People around the world eat animals that western society does not consider food (snakes, insects, horse, alligator).

    Dogs and cats are the most common pets here, so our brains do not perceive them to be food. That is the only reason westerners feel squeamish when they think of eating dogs. In societies where an animal is an uncommon pet, it can and will be perceived as food.

    Take for example rabbits, ducks, pigs... very uncommon pets compared to cats/dogs. And people will eat them without a thought. So if you are strong-minded enough to not be influenced by society's preconceived notion of what animal can or cannot be eaten, a dog is just as yummy as a cow.

  • I could never do that! Chinese people eat dogs, though. That's straight from my mum's friend Qinglan. I don't know about cats. I hope not. If Justacatlady were still here, she'd be horrified!

    • @meowcow They're all bad for eating dead animals!

    • sure... lions and tigers and bears must be bad too then.

  • Gross. I rather die easier than go through severe stomach pain and who knows what from eating cats or dogs.

    • By what logic do you conclude that you would get severe stomach pain and "who knows what" from eating cats or dogs?

      Why would you get stomach pains from eating cats and dogs but not from all the other animals we eat like cows, chicken, fish, rabbit, venison (deer), moose, duck...

    • I don't "Conclude", I just don't wanna risk it because I used to have stomach problems and now I do everything I can to avoid them. Since I don't know what my reaction would be towards eating cats or dogs I am too scared of trying.

  • Already did. I went to China on a training trip for one of my college ROTC labs. Me and my buddies saw this small market where they had cats obviously cooked rotating on a pole inside glass like rotisserie chicken. They would then shave some meat of with a knife wrap it up and put it in a bag. Im not gonna lie, it was really good. But i compose myself in the US and keep cats and dogs as pets. I have a dog right now i love dearly.

    • Show All
    • @Ihav2fart nope sheep , cows , chickens , hens are made for this they r farm animals we call it soenthing in Arabic but I don't know it's translation, and dogs and cats and horses and camels got important benfits more than being a food can u tell me the benfit of the other animals I mentioned besides eating using their fur or their skin and using them in farm?

    • Actually cows can be more useful for farm work than just meat to be eaten while cats do not really have much benefit to humans. Yet, we eat beef.
      For dogs, other than hunting and herding they also technically do not serve us any other benefits.

      Also, in cultures where dog and cat is eaten those animals ARE farm raised as meat.. they do not just eat random domesticated house pets. It's just ignorant people who do not know otherwise.

      Sure, there are fucked up individuals who steal peoples "pet" and eat them as food but they are not even close to the majority and do not represent the people in the culture that does eat those certain animals.

      Just because one culture does not eat a certain thing does not mean other cultures that do is "wrong".

      Hindus do NOT eat beef... they worship the cow. Do you see them going around saying how it's disgusting that you're eating their god?

  • im veggie so personally no but i can't understand why meat eaters should get so uptight about it

  • Heck no way. The only animals meat I could bear to eat is pork, chicken and fish.. I'd eat it tho, if I have no other choices left and I need to survive.

    Anyways, there's plenty of people back in Malaysia that catches stray dogs to eat (by the people, I mean the Vietnamese that had came to stay in Msia). Many Oz eats kangaroos too. And definitely many people eat mutton and beef as well. I personally think that all animals are equal in a sense that one shouldn't just protect a kind of animal and others are being eaten. (If whatever I said made sense..)

    ... and yeah, I voted B. Cause like I said, I'd eat them in cases of survival.

  • Apparently, some ethnic cuisines use dog and cat meat in preparing some dishes... I've heard dog meat tastes like lamb, while cat meat tastes like rabbit... weird... but I wouldn't eat it anyway.

  • Yeah sure. I don't think any particular animal has more worth than another. In other cultures they worship/respect different types of animals (e. g. India with the cow) and would never eat them. The western world is the same with dogs and cats. I see no difference between pig meat and dog/cat meat.
