Hi my freinds, have youu seen that the government are going to draw up a law to forbid people eating the meat of cats and dogs. Do you agree with this situation?For some people they disagree with the idea so deeply. As far as I am concerned, I love the cats and dogs so much. I usually regard them as my pets. I can noy bear people who like to eat the meat of the cats and dogs.I can not think it clearly why they like the meat of cats and dogs so much. If they do not eat the meat of them,they could have nothing to eat? So maybe they need to eat vegetables more.

In the colder part of my country, people are eating the meat of dogs. They say that dogs meat keeps their body warm. I also seen people eating cats meat. But thats another case. Its because these people are so poor that they can't afford to buy the common foods for their meals. In a culture where these two animals are considered as pets, many would disagree about considering them as food. Laws maybe passed to forbid eating these meat, but still there will be people who violates the law.

Yep. When you're starving, the law really isn't on your mind.

Well well well...like cats or dogs..there are certain other living creatures like Chicken,Pig..etc etc...What about them ?? If you are a vegetarian...you have the right to speak against people who eat dogs or cats...If not its better to be quiet like me...

Well, here I go again. I just typed a long long response, and it got lost somewhere in wah wah land! I was saying, absolutely yes! I forbid eating of cats and dogs. That almost sounds cannibalistic. I mean God made them to love and release stress and all. We can't eat them. If my pets came up missing and they probably would because of the economy if people could eat them. All I'd think about is someone carving my babies. I know there are alot of them that people don't take care of and strays and all, but when there are homeless people, we don't decide to eat them.

Well if there is a law, it should be against people eating your pets. Who are we to legislate how or what people of other cultures eat. As far as I know, some people some place eat rats. I don't, but if someone thinks rat is a good gourmet food, enjoy.

I'm sorry, but I don't see any sense in singling out cats and dogs. If you are going to make a law to forbid people from eating cats and dogs, why not include all other animals as well? Just because people like cats and dogs doesn't mean that cats and dogs are higher kinds of animals than others. They're just like all other animals.

Even though I don't think people should be eating cats or dogs, I don't think there needs to be a law. If I kept pigs as pets, should there be a law to protect them as a species?

hi monkeylong oh I agree that we should make a law forbidding anyone to eat cats and dogs. to me they are our pets,and to eat my pets would be like being a cannibal,you just don't eat your family members.pets are a part of one's family. If they do not eat other forms of meat let them become vegetarians and go on their veggie way, and leave our pets along.ugh the thought makes me want to vomit.

I am vegeterian, and an animal lover, and I would never eat the meat of cats or dogs but I do not agree with this law. I think that if people are going to make laws about meat, Factory Farming must be out-lawed. It is just not right to treat animals like "meat machines." ALL animals need to be treated like living beings, because they are.

In my culture people don't eat cat and dogs. However, if I was raised in a country where this was normal, I would have no objections. The healthiest diet is vegetarian, but people just like meat. I have fish in a tank which I consider pets, but that does not stop people from eating fish.
