Kitty Beef

We’ve been getting a lot of calls from people asking what we’re going to do about some new websites that are being passed around, called KittyBeef.com and PuppyBeef.com, which are purporting to sell prime cuts from kittens and puppies at discount prices. Well, the simple answer is … we’re not really going to do all that much about it at all. In fact, I kind of wish we’d thought of the idea ourselves. For anyone who’s horrified by the concept of having puppy chops or kitten nuggets for dinner, I hope they’ll go just one tiny step further in their outrage and ask themselves how that’s any different from chowing down on pork chops or chicken.

At the risk of getting a little rhetorical here, animals killed for our kitchens are just as capable of suffering as the animals we keep in our homes. They’re just as smart, just as loving, and the prospect of the horrors that are inflicted on them by the meat industry keeps me up at night and fills me with the same anguish as reports of people who chain their dogs or torture their cats.

If these websites weren’t clearly hoaxes, PETA would do something about it—but we wouldn’t make any ethical distinction between addressing that issue and getting KFC to stop abusing chickens—or asking people to go vegetarian. Just for a week, or a day, if you find it hard to get out of the old routine at first. And especially if the idea of having your kitten or puppy bled out and turned into prime cuts gives you the cold sweats. ‘Cause it’s happening right now to billions of other animals who are just as entitled to kindness, but never experience anything even remotely like it.

    I agree 100% with PETA on this one. Killing and eating cats and dogs is no different than doing the same to pigs and cows. With that being said I think I’ll go collie hunting because I’m in the mood for some barbecue!
