In the U.S., only 6 states ban eating cat and dog meat entirely.

It is illegal in all states for slaughterhouses to handle dogs and cats, and it's illegal for stores to sell the meat.
However, individuals in most states can kill and eat a dog or cat or sell the meat to other people.

In my state, raising cats and dogs for fur is also illegal; and selling a taxidermied cat or dog is illegal.
But, it is legal to have your own pet taxidermied, and legal to pay the taxidermist for the service.

EDIT: If I recall my research correctly, it's vague on whether you need to wait for the pet to expire of natural causes or not.

Many states consider pets to be chattel, or property. And you're free to do with your property what you wish, so land of the free is correct.

You look very ofended with a thread that's clearly a joke but I'd like to ask: what's the difference between eating a cat and a fish? I really like that you say "eating our dear pets" like there's a lot of difference between eating a pet and any other kind of animal.

What if you eat a catfish, is that only half bad? Pets are usually cared for and treated as kind of family members, so you could ask what's wrong with eating your grandma.

To begin with humans are animals too, would you eat one?
Would you eat anything just because it is not human?
Is there no limit to the voracity of humanity?
One could ask many questions like that. And i wager get nowhere. Pity.
Sure, as far as meat itself goes i guess there isn't much difference. Not that i would know anything about it. But.
Try and imagine eating a loved one, someone who did nothing but give you love and adoration all of their existence.
Someone who healed you when you were at your lowest moments.
Then you will understand the true difference.
And i sure as fuck do not wish to see people gorge themselves on lifeforms that look exactly like my lifelong friends.
Movin' on.
Likewise a simple normal rock may be just a rock to you.
But for someone that rock may hold memories they will not exchange for all the money in the universe.
Apply this kind of thinking to all that surrounds you, perhaps something cool or at least interesting will happen, then.
Hows that for a bed-time story? ^^)
And in case you were wondering, no i don't get those kinds of "jokes". They can burn.

Ultimately depends where you live, and what things you learned from your surroundings are "eadible". Circumstance alone will lead to some unusual meals.

Remove some wellbeing here & there, for instance crashing a plane in some remote place with nothing to eat, or being prisoner of war with nothing to eat, major famines .... survival of the fittest will kick in sooner than you think.

edit: And don´t worry, i understand the sentiment of not wanting to eat/lose loved ones.

Again, the idea that eating a loved one is a bad thing may be a cultural thing. Perhaps someone could see that as a tribute, idk if there are cultures like that but is not impossible. What you think is bad is what your culture showed you as bad and might be the nicest thing elsewhere. I wouldn't eat a cat but who am I to judge the person who does?

There are absolutely cultures like that. I know people who cooked their pets after their pets died, because otherwise they would just be wasting good meat.

There's a disease called Kuru that you can get from eating human meat - especially human brains (it comes from infected protein). Some tribes used to eat their dead relatives and the kids and women would usually eat the brain parts. Those were the most affected by the Kuru disease. Of course poor hygiene methods (e.g.: not cooking the meat properly) also plays some role here.

No, i'm pretty sure for one who is capable of feeling it is a universal thing, not just cultural.
Heck, do you even hear yourself? You spout such a huge load of crap.
And if nobody would judge how would we know what's fucked up and what isn't?
You can judge because there is this thing called choice, and majority of us are lucky enough to be able to choose.
Unlike all of the things we eat.

No, i'm pretty sure for one who is capable of feeling it is a universal thing, not just cultural.

It is cultural, although I think it's more a matter of which things are considered "friends" rather than it being okay to eat pets and people in most cases.

e.g. People talk about how certain places in China consider dogs food, but there are also parts of China where they keep pigs as pets and think it's horrifying that someone would eat them. Eating cows is also hugely taboo in Hindu communities, since they're considered sacred, and there have actually been pogroms of non-vegetarians in certain places in India.

Anyways, this doesn't mean you have to be personally okay with it! But I don't think that's fair to expect other people to have the same gut instincts as you, especially in other cultures where what disgusts you is a normal part of their life, and perhaps vice versa. (I wasn't totally clear from your replies whether you're vegan, in which case I think you do actually have a moral highground to stand on about not eating any animals because they're sentient.)

I'm not vegan but i am trying to limit myself as much as i can.
It is not a cakewalk to just jump ship from meat entirely. But i'm trying.
And it's not like anyone is going to stop eating meat just because i jump ship, either.
At the very least, i can pay respects to what has already been killed by making it's flesh a part of me.
Not that it makes me feel any better.

It really isn't! At some point I realized the main thing preventing me from going vegan was that I'm such a picky eater I was sure I wouldn't be able to find vegan things to eat at most restaurants or events I went to with friends and family. Plus, the idea of being open about it made me anxious because some people get weirdly aggressive about other folks' diets.

Now I've got a sort of hybrid diet where I cook and eat vegan when I'm alone (which is ~95% of my food), but eat whatever when I'm with other people. I've found it's a good compromise, and it's nice to still be able to eat my grandparents' cooking when I visit.

So, i guess the moral is, enjoy it while you still can.

That is actually the case! Someone already mentioned kuru, which was a disease unique to the South Fore. My mom used to bring it up those who contracted kuru disease as an example of "savage" tribes, but actual anthropological studies show there was a lot more nuance than that, and it was very much done out of love. (Warning: I'm about to discuss that in some detail, so maybe don't read further if cannibalism/dead bodies is upsetting to you!)

I found this article really eye-opening in terms of cultural differences and why they chose to eat their relatives.

Here are some quotes from it:

A person has five souls (auma, ama, kwela, aona and yesegi) that depart from the body on the last breath but only the auma departs immediately to the land of the dead. The auma is similar to the western concept of a soul and consists of a person's good qualities. Once the auma has been forgiven by a close male affine for any transgressions committed during the deceased's life, it travels across the land saying farewell to the bagina [world]. When it reaches the amani, it explains to the clan guardian why it has died and the amani feeds the auma and directs it on the road to kwelanandamundi. Food and water left at the sepulture by the family provide sustenance for the auma on its journey. Eventually it reaches a red river at the entrance to the land of the dead and having crossed this it is welcomed by the ancestors. The auma then has to wait for the ama (bones) and kwela (flesh) to arrive before it can be reborn as an ancestor.

So the good parts of a person's personality are automatically preserved no matter what. But you can't actually become an ancestral spirit until your body is destroyed. By eating it themselves, the Fore thought that the deceased could pass their blessings and talents onto their favourite relatives while also being sped safely along on their journey to the afterlife.

The dying person would normally express their wishes as to how their body was to be disposed of; otherwise the family would decide. In the kuru-affected region, all methods of disposal of the body involved being eaten. If the body was buried it was eaten by worms; if it was placed on a platform it was eaten by maggots; the Fore believed it was much better that the body was eaten by people who loved the deceased than by worms and insects. By eating the dead, they were able to show their love and to express their grief.

So you had a choice of whether to be eaten or not, but most people wanted to be, because it was better to feed those you loved than insects (and better to eat those you love than let them decay).

After death, the family and relatives mourned over the body of the deceased for 2–3 days and then, if it was to be eaten, it was taken on a stretcher to a bamboo, sugar cane or casuarina grove. These sites were chosen as they provided shade to the mourners and the deceased's souls, making them happy.

This was just a cute example of how they took into account the deceased's spirit and the mourners during the proceedings. There were also a lot of rules, like not allowing any food to fall on the ground because it was disrespectful to the dead.

I highly doubt our friend would understand this. Seems to believe his way of watching the world is the only "correct" one. But thanks a lot for the info! I did remember reading something about kuru but I wasn't sure and didn't have time to google when I post my comment.

I get that we have to eat something.
Plants at least don't seem intelligent or lifelike.
Creatures like cats, dogs, etc do however.
And it's not like humanity lacks food sources to need to stoop to eating literally everything.
Ideally i'd like to be able to feed off energy, like electricity, but that's wishful thinking.

Dogs aren't pets, you can have dogs or cats or pigs or anything as pets. Your pet is the one unique and special to you, not it's species, so just because people eating meat from the same kind as your pet does not mean they are eating your pet.

How is it sick to eat a cat, but okay if you eat a cow or a pig? Pig are capable of suffering just as much as a cat and they're more intelligent.

@Ketsuppikorva
I didn't mean to say that someone suffers more or less. I apologize if that is how i sounded.
It's just that getting humanity to stop eating pigs and cows is far more challenging than getting them to stop eating creatures like cats and dogs. Normally nobody has a pet like pig or a cow, but everyone has a pet dog or a cat and i would find it most unpleasant to see someone eating something that looks just like my pet.
Ideally i'd like everyone go vegan but that's.... probably asking too much.
Even though we are omnivores and can live on veggies just fine.
I doubt anyone will stop eating meat. But we have to start somewhere right?
To stop gorging and exert moderation in our consumption practices.
So, they can at least stop eating fairly intelligent creatures like cats and dogs.
There is no reason to after all, we're not starving.
And even if there was a reason it'd be best to avoid doing so anyway.

Actually, most likely I have eaten cat meat a few times... in early 1980-ties in New York, shortly after arriving in US.

There were those cheap Asian restaurants (mostly Chinese), serving exotic and quite tasty meals for just a few bucks. I still remember some names, like egg foo young, but in almost the same price they were also serving tiger steaks. I didn't think much, and for the price they were not bloody likely to have anything to do with tigers, so I've actually enjoyed them every so often... until I've learned, that in a way they most likely had something in common with tigers.

After a while I've learned, that the reason for this very cheap price was quite simple: they were made from some very small and domesticated tigers, that we usually call cats. At least according to a wide spread rumor, but I personally believe, that this was the truth.

Well, I am actually a cat lover, so I've stopped ordering the tiger steaks... but I must admit, that they were quite tasty.

I'm not sure, if those tiger steaks are still on offer, I've left US over 30 years ago, but as I read, in some places you can still eat there some real lion meat at least - National Geographic.

I grew up in an area with a significant Chinese population. Lots of stores in my area sell manapua, which is a steamed bun with meat inside (usually char siu pork.) Growing up, the rumor was that the meat inside was actually cat meat. I heard this as a young child and I kind of half believed it. As a result the idea of eating cat meat doesn't seem too crazy. Even though I love animals, if there was a famine I could see doing it out of necessity.

There is. Carnivore meat contains toxins like mercury, that's kinda why carnivores in nature generally don't hunt other carnivores for food. Risk of contracting disease is also higher.

While I'm not a vegetarian, I don't eat meat on a daily basis, so I don't understand some people's fascination with eating just about anything. XD. I had an American house mate in uni and he was going on and on about all the gross and unique things he had eaten. He was like "you have no sense of adventure." Maybe I don't. Ew. XD
