I'm not a cat-lover

I prefer dogs as a rule - they're more loyal, friendly and they'll actually fetch the ball when I throw it.

Having said that I'm not a cat-lover, I must admit I wouldn't mind trying a cat burger. I'll eat rabbit - an equally furry family friend - so why not eat cat?

At least it would stop them making a mess in my garden.

Now you've put the cat amongst the pigeons!

I'll eat the pigeons as well

I liked the quote, '"just think of them as very small cows. Job done.'

I read somewhere that the chinese will eat anything but the heart and the lungs of a dog, I remember where I used to live the local chinese takeaway was next door to the local vets????

"I prefer dogs as a rule - they're more loyal, friendly and they'll actually fetch the ball when I throw it."
Thats because dogs are basically simple creatures,and want to please you,their pack leader.Cats however are far more complicated,and tend to do just what they want.
Admittedly,some will chase after a small ball if thrown,but they're just honing their innate hunting skills,not to please their owners.
As for trying'cat-burgers',I hope you were kidding?If not,why not extend your diet to include dog and horse-meat?

Like the French?

Chow is Chinese for food is it not. It is also a type of Dog.

A dog thinks: My owners feed me, love me, provide me with a nice house, and take good care of me... They must be gods!

A cat thinks: My owners feed me, love me, provide me with a nice house and take good care of me...
I must be a god!

That's why you prefer dogs, you like to feel superior.

I see no reason not to eat cat if that's something which is part of a different culture's diet. Same goes for horse or dog. I'd never eat a red squirrel in the UK, but if they're plentiful elsewhere, why not?

You would not like Cat. It is said to be Sticky. I cannot however confirm this because I would not eat it if I was starving to death.

Resusitated Rat Rissoles are a different matter.

The short version is:

Dogs have owners.

Cats have staff.
