i wouldn't eat a dog or cat, but im willing to admit its because i had plenty of other choices in my culture.
my same culture has also a taste for some parts of pigs and cows that im not fond of eating, but on the other hand i eat snails, wich is a treat here,
but a disgusting animal to most cultures.
this boils down to culture, education and first and foremost, a personal choice.
i really dont have nothing against the chinese, i can say from all of eearths modern cultures, they arent petty or picky in what they choose to
a cat is much like a rabbit and some bread those as pets too, same way a dog can be seen as a lamb.
but they go as far as eating insects.
plus taking into account the number of people in china, i dont really think they can afford to be picky.
and im willing to bet they do show more respect and humane treatment to dogs and cats than what the west does for pigs, cows and chickens.
and the source is a site for pets, pretty bias in this issue.
on a deeper level of understanding, making animals into pets can be as wrong as eating them, but thats perspective for you.
