    To Chinese people, or people who work in a Chinese restaurant: Do you kill cats, cook them and sell them to your customers, stating that it is chicken? Please be honest.

    I worked in a Chinese restaurant for more than two years, and we didn’t use any cats at all. But we didn’t use chicken, either. We substituted turkey as chicken (more white meat for the buck).

    Cat (or dog) meat does not taste like chicken. Cats and dogs are very inefficient sources of protein. In other words, they are much more expensive than pork or chicken. Cats and dogs are delicacies in China. They are served only on special occasions, and not everyone in China can afford them or has a preference for them. Believe me, they are not served in Chinese restaurants in North America as chicken because of the cost. Chinese living in America also understand the taboo against eating cat or dog meat in this culture. I personally don’t know any Asian (or Chinese) American who eats their pet for dinner in North America.

    This has to be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. I’m white, but I think lots of these Chinese restaurants would be closing by the thousands. In New York City, for example, you know what meat you’re getting because the chicken is hanging by the window.

    While living in Central California during the middle ’70s when the Vietnameese people started to arrive, all the cats on the south side of town were disapearing. Come to find out they were eating them. They even went to the dog pound to buy them.
