PETA ‘cat monger’ to serve up ‘dead cats’ in Cardiff in honour of World Vegan Day

A PETA ‘cat monger’ will serve up kitty fillets at Cardiff Market today in honour of World Vegan Day.

The kitten cutlets will be served up on trays of ice at two for £5 with “fresh local Siamese” for £8 a kilo and “whole boiled tabbies” for £6 each.

The campaign is being carried out on Wednesday (November 1) at 12 noon by the world’s largest animal rights organisation who say eating fish is no different to eating pets.

The “cat monger” will compete with the local fishmongers at Cardiff’s historical market in an effort to challenge ‘speciesism’ – the practice of treating one species as morally more important than members of other species.

PETA said it hopes the event will push locals to “see fish as intelligent, feeling individuals” and opt for vegan fare instead of meat.

Fur

Senior Campaigns Manager Kate Werner said: “Fish are as playful, inquisitive, and sensitive to pain as the cats we share our homes with, yet more fish are killed for food each year than all other animals combined.

“PETA is calling on everyone to ‘sea’ things differently and to leave all animals – whether they have fur or fins – off their plates.”

“Fish share knowledge and have long memories as well as cultural traditions. Yet they’re impaled, crushed, suffocated, or cut open and gutted by the billion – often while they’re completely conscious.

“In addition, 38 million tonnes of other aquatic animals are unintentionally caught annually as the fishing industry aims to increase profits. Every person who goes vegan spares the lives of nearly 200 animals (including aquatic ones) each year.”

This is Veganism carried to the level of stupidity. Anyway we should eat cats. 1/3 of the world is starving. Read Jonathan Swift’s essay, “A Modest Proposal.”

An elderly Polish guy living in Wales once told me how his family had been forced to eat their pet cat during WWII.

If you are hungry enough you will eat anything, it’s only privileged westerners that are able to chose to be vegan.

I’m not a vegan but, in terms of land use, there’d be more room for growing enough food for everyone if there were more of them. Eating less meat is therefore important for combating world hunger. Europeans consume twice as much meat as the global average.

More meat goes into pet food in the the USA than is consumed by humans in the UK.

People in general like to kill the weak which is animal, slaughtering them, make them suffer, it would be fair to eat people for a change.

Ah they’re competing with the local fishmongers, I expect they’ll be asking all the fish about their “cultural traditions” in their downtime.

A sensible idea might be to zero VAT rate plant based foods for Cats and Dogs..
That might reduce meat consumption more than another pro Vegan campaign

I still don’t understand what it is that they’re selling

Like….. Can I actually buy a cat burger or is this just more of the shaped and coloured mush that they insist is the same as eating meat? 🤔

I have an ambition to sample as many different meats as possible before I die, so if I can do this 30miles away from home instead of 3000miles away then my wallet would thank PETA very much 🤷🏻‍♂️

Urgh. Why are trading standards and food health and sanitation organisations not stopping them? You can only sell meat that has passed quality checks. Exotic or in this case domestic semi-wild carnivorous animals aren’t safe for human consumption. They carry diseases and parasites that humans (who have evolved to eat herbivorous animals and plants) cannot process and are potentially extremely harmful. I get that they’re showing off and think they’re being very clever serving up domestic pets, but who cares? Do we really want some new disease sweeping the land. It’s not legal and with very good reason. Plus, humans… Read more »

Isn’t PETA a acronym for “People eat tasty animals” ?
