1300 Cats rescued!

In China, there is an existing practice at one of their festivals where 10,000 cats or more get slaughtered and feasted on by festival-goers. This is violently opposed by many animal-lovers in China and the world over. This is a shocking story of a cat rescue undertaken in China to avert this practice.

More than 1300 cats in dozens of metal cages were waiting by the roadside on Xiangyang Road in Tianjin Citys Nankai District.

They are all the victims of cat trafficking and about to be shipped to meat dealers in China’s southern Guangdong Province. That is, until about 100 pet lovers and animal rights activists came to their rescue.

In this post on Chinasmack.com, dated last Monday, we can see one of the first calls rallying support to rescue these cats.

    I think what’s really messed up is ASSHOLES OVERBREEDING WHICH MEANS THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And yet they continue even if some people get banished from it…That’s why we have so many…That’s the most stupid reason ever…Maybe china knows that there’s way to many animals and people who overbreed are sick so that’s probably why….It’s not the shelter’s fault or anyone else..it’s the assholes who overbreed in the first place and having all these animals travel everywhere

    That bad cruel bastard china

  12. The sad thing is there are so many animals that are so smart and we abuse them for our own needs. Pigs are smarter than dogs and chickens are lovely. Cows will come when you call them and they are the sweetest creatures. We think it’s so awful that other cultures eat cats and dogs because we have them for pets. But they are all amazing.

    Unbelievably cruel! So glad these we’re rescued. I hope they all survive and get adopted! Sickening to think people actually kill them for meat. It’s barbaric! But it’s China! They kill everything!

    This is beyond reproach. Just because it’s in a culture, it doesn’t mean it’s right. Just look at fox hunting and dog fighting in the UK.

    China needs to wake up. If the police in a police state are useless, I think it’s time for a power shift.

      Oh, by the way. Theft would be prosecuted, surely. What of the slaughterhouses doing it? Why haven’t they been shut/burnt down?

      Cats are food for the mind, NOT the body.
