Does Anybody Have The Recipe For Kitten Curry

January 19, 2013 6:59pm CST
Following a my recent post on Horse burgers, it seems only natural to move on to other things we can eat. Kitten Curry sounds lovely, does it not? We are a little fussy when it comes to food we eat, I suspect we are a little sentimental when it comes to which beasties we can snack on. It is perfectly fine to eat cows, sheep and pigs... Deer, Rabbit, Chicken, Duck, Goose and turkey are readily snacked on. Other animals are also eaten. We do draw the line at some creatures - Horse, Dog and cat, to name just a few. We do seem to hold these animals up higher than other creatures - I do not understand why. They are no different and no more special than any other animal that walks these lands. I think PANDA PIES would sell like so well. I honestly do not have a problem eating any kind of animal. Some of you are fussy and a little picky, I am guessing some of you like to shop for Organic foods as well... Be warned my friends, when the Apocalypse comes - I will have no trouble finding things to eat, in fact I have dibs on the fat bloke at the end of the street. There are plenty of cats roaming around being unfaithful to their owners, eating at other people's houses - do you think anyone will miss a few if I make my curry? When I first started work as an apprentice electrician, we would be loaned out to a local slaughter house for a couple of months a year. We would repair sheep stunners. Apart from the smell and my daily vomiting, one thing I will never forget is the pigs waiting to be slaughtered. They know their fate and they cry, their crying sounds like a baby crying. Pigs are amazing creatures, yet we happily eat them. Are our pets better than them?

you start the business in the UK and I'll open a franchise out here! I'm sure we could get Tim Horton's on board

I am English and live in Italy where horsemeat is also eaten. There are chains of butchers dedicated solely to horsemeat which is good for those with low blood pressure. Anyone regularly using Chinese restaurants will probably have eaten cat and dog too, though whether it was specified on the menu is another matter They probably use sparrows too as, when I was still in UK, we had Chinese neighbours whose hobby appeared to be that of getting rid of all of the local sparrows uisng airguns

I wonder if we could get a contingent of them here to pop off the excess crow population? ......or the pigeons and Canada geese in Toronto......

I am not a fussy person but I don't think I could eat kitten. Then again I think really you eat what you were taught. In some cultures it's completely fine to eat meats that I would consider strange but they grew up thinking it was normal.

I get what you are saying. And I guess most people do hold their pets higher up then other animals. I also think people have become accustomed to thinking about cats and dogs in particular as pets. And therefore will not even consider eating them. But, are we really supposed to eat meat in the first place? Think about that a minute. I do eat meat, but I do not see the slaughter. If I saw what you saw I probably would ever eat meat again. Supposedly there is enough nutrition in vegetables to survive. I agree that is there were an apocalypse I also would eat whatever I can get my hands on. It would then become instinct.

I agree. The problem I do have with corporate farms is that they pump those animals with steroids and whatever else. Where as free range meat is far better, but more expensive. I always look for free range meat in the supermarket. I would rather pay a little more for a better cut of meat. And animals that was cared for before it was slaughtered. I saw a piece of a documentary about these corporate farms and how they treat the animals. I turned it off. I just could not watch it. My brother watched the whole thing. He said if anyone were to watch it no one would want to eat meat. So I hear what you're saying. I also enjoy a good piece of meet. Yes we are predators and we are at the top of the food chain. But we do live in a world of excess.

We had a big push in the UK against what we call factory farming. We do seem more and more willing to buy free range or organic meats. Your final point about excess is another discussion altogether, a report on the news about a fortnight ago showed that 50% of all food produced around the World is thrown away

None of our food we buy in the shops are 'pure'. There are chemicals in our fruit and veg and as inertia4 said - all the meat we enjoy are pumped with steroids. We will have to get back to what our forefathers did - get into our own garden for fresh food and keep a few chickens running around.... that's our only hope, for sure.

I was talking to this guy who is from another country. A friend of mine told me that people from that country eat cat. I thought my friend was joking. He was serious. So I asked my the guy I was talking to if he ever ate cat, and he told me he did. I never could kiss him much, but after that I didn't kiss him at all. And the cat-eating part could be why I am totally unattracted to him today.

How is eating cat any different to eating sheep or cow?

I certainly don't have sheep or cow roaming around my house, rubbing their body against my legs, purring when I rub their back. Besides, I don't eat sheep. I have eaten goat before; they sell curry goat down the street. But now that I am old enough to actually think about what I eat, I would never do that again.

I'm going vegan! This is too much to stomach. I do understand what you are saying but it is gross to me
21 Jan 13
What is gross about it? You are still killing something when you eat plants - just because something has a cute face - that does not make it better

Oh robspeakman, you are enjoying this hey!!! hahaha. Remember when I eat fruit and veggies I do not see pain in the apple's eyes when I take a bite! the banana also do not shout when I peel it! I agree with cynthiann - vegan is the way to go!

You would not see the pain in the eyes of an animal, because the butcher would have done that for you Life is life

I think someone here has read A Modest Proposal by Jonathon Swift. Did you have Bonsai Kitten Curry in mind?

If we look around the planet then I am sure that almost all creatures are eaten by some societies, yet we always have the impression that the ones traditionally eaten by our own society are the only acceptable ones to consume. This is the reason that English restaurants and caf├ęs are so popular in the tourist destinations regular visited by English people. I have eaten octopus in Spain and drunk Silver Birch juice in Siberia, which was actually a very good drink. I remember an in flight meal aboard an Aeroflot jet back in the 1980s. There were 10 of us travelling out there are I was the only one to eat the food, which was a cold selection of items that I could not identify. Amazing, 10 British tourists adventurous enough to take a holiday in Central Siberia and only one prepared to try the food.
