Vietnam: Cat Meat Cats In Da Nang
Today in Da Nang, central Vietnam, 60 cats were being held in a cat holding area, on their way to a cat slaughterhouse. Vietnam Cat Welfare (VCW), took the photographs and said “the cats are stolen and taken off the streets.” They confirmed the cats were stacked on top of each other, causing them to be highly stressed and overheating, in Vietnam’s searing temperatures.
Because the cats are so scared, they are too frightened to even drink water. VCW said it was heartbreaking to see the cats, knowing what their fate would be. Cat meat is consumed to stifle superstition. Known as “Little Tiger”, local superstition says eating cat meat at the start of each month wards off bad luck.
In a face to face conversation with a dog /cat butcher in Vietnam, a couple of years ago, I was told many local people believe that eating a cat’s spine once a month will impart the agility of the cat, to the consumer. Many local people dislike cats and even see them as evil; however, the same people still believe in the power of consuming cat meat, for traditional medicinal reasons.
There is no scientific evidence supporting claims of cat or dog meat having or imparting medicinal powers. To support Vietnam Cat Welfare, please visit their Facebook page: Vietnam Cat Welfare and their website: www.VietnamCatWelfare.org.
