'Gastronomical Festival of the Cat'

You know how you sometimes have likes and dislikes that you can't explain? You have no idea why you love this or dislike/hate that?

Well I dislike South America. Of course I can't just make such a statement without a valid reason. It's just that I never felt the urge to travel to South America. I don't want to see the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu and I don't want to see the carnival in Rio. I don't much care for Chile nor do I want Argentina to cry for me. I don't care for the cuisine nor the history, languages etc. and until today I had no idea why.

One could even say that among the five continents South America is my least favorite.

Until I read THIS today. Being quite possibly one of the world's biggest cat lovers I am outraged and hope they are taking the piss but I fear it is not a joke and Peruvians are not the only people to eat cats but a 'Gastronomical Festival of the Cat'???????? I MEAN PURRRLEASE! That's just one step too far.

I feel a rant coming on but for the sake of world peace I will keep quiet and instead curl up on my couch in the fetal position after I made sure that my two furry friends are alive and well.


P.S. No I am not a vegetarian, vegan or meat hater. It's just that my meat grows in neat little plastic packages in my supermarket's meat aisle.

I'm speechless. Good thing I'm already fasting today; I've re-lost my appetite. Ick.

After that picture I'm not even reading the article. People eating cats is just WRONG!

Well, I don't feel able to object to it on moral grounds, but things they need to encourage people to eat with promises of curing ailments are usually disgusting.

I just can't imagine eating food that wasn't grown in the packages at my grocery store. I saw Exiled on MTV when they sent this spoiled rich girl off to some third world family in the mountains that killed and cooked a guinea pig for her and she was supposed to be honored and eat it happily! YUCK!
