They already do that, when cats and dogs are put to sleep at animal shelters they are sent to feedlots to be processed for cattle food.
Got any proof of that?
Fast Food Nation although you do have to buy the book :)
Gee, that's nifty. An anti-corporite propaganda book from a hard core leftist anti-meat fanatic with a clear agenda. Got any believable proof?
Just like Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" right?

To say that everything in the book is false is ignorant, and the same goes for believing everything in the book.

No, to blindly believe a book written by someone with such a clear and biased agenda is ignorant. It cannot be used as a reference for anything, much less facts.

May I ask this? What does HE use as a reference for this, or any other fact in his book?

"Put to sleep" is a euphemism for "Poisoned," isn't it? I'd be surprised if they fed cattle poison! :Q

I've never seen cat on the menu at a Chinese restaurant before, the most "extreme" things were frog legs or pork blood.

However if you've ever eaten any All-American food like hamburgers (yum) then you've inadvertantly eaten something that was fed dog/cat/horse. Yum beef.
The only time I've seen cat or dog on the menu was in the Far East. These little shops in Hong Kong had them. Kinda wierd. Like 100 year old eggs.....
As I always say....
One man's pet is another man's lunch.

BTW, quit looking at my cat like that!!!

Uhh... I've been told that cats are tough and stringy, have a bitter taste, and that there isn't much meat on them to begin with. I may also be illegal. Not necessarily the eating part, but the slaughtering and butchering aspect may violate your local animal cruelty laws.

What's your point? This thread is about legality of eating cats. Other countries can look down at us for eating beef or eating pork. If it's normal behavior for that country, we have no right to discriminate.
