Cats are for petting, not for plating.
Cats are fine pets. But a fine meal? No, sir. No.
The alleged eating practices of a Bakersfield man has run him afoul of the law, after he was found with the headless carcass of a feline friend in his kitchen sink, according to reports.
Jason Wilmert, 35, lives in the Bakersfield suburb of Oildale, where neighbors told police of hearing the sound of screaming cats coming from Wilmert's backyard. One neighbor reported seeing Wilmert decapitate a cat in his yard, police said.
Deputies arrived on-scene and saw a cat's head in Wilmet's backyard. Once they went inside, they found a carcass prepared "as if for cooking," according to reports.
Possessing a pet for food is illegal in California, as well as plain twisted. Wilmert was arrested on misdemeanor animal cruelty charges and possession of a pet for food.
Bettern TV lol!
Yes, and when I get tired of watching, I can switch to one of the other two available channels...
They are *gorgeous*! How did you happen to become a family?
Moogie crawled—couldn't walk—up a construction ramp to our front door 16 years ago, at 4 months old, and basically collapsed from near starvation.
The demon cat, was an 8 or 9 week old Spring kitten that claimed us as hers 6 years ago. She climbed on our legs; then when that didn't work, went up a fence post & jumped onto my shoulders, and would not be denied. We were visiting neighbors who were moving out, and she was part of a litter from a mooching feral cat, and knew she wanted regular meals & a warm bed at night.
Pixel, at 4-6 months old, followed the late Mister Fang Feral home from who knows where; we checked with neighbors, and she wasn't any of theirs. That was Fall of the same year that Demoness moved in; and that Summer is also when Fang—a misnomer of ever there was one—showed up. He & Pixel were nearly inseparable.
Fang died of a fast growing brain tumor a little over a year ago.
My sucker sign is tattooed across my forehead. Aren’t stray animals supposed to run away from strangers? They bark, yowl, scratch at the door, etc. to get into our house. They don’t even know if they’d like it in here. My husband thinks that the indoor pets rat us out to the outdoor critters. There’s no other explanation.
Taste like chicken. :P
Well that’s one way to deal with rising food prices.
“You’re doin’ it wrong.”
