Chow Now in Carnivorousness

Animal rights groups are up in arms over an annual festival in Peru that serves up hundreds of fried cats to locals.
The ‘Gastronomical Festival of the Cat‘—dubbed the ‘Massacre of the Moggies’ [Eds. note: “Moggie” is British for “Fluffy”]—sees townsfolk in Canete, near Lima, feast on the fluffy pets for two days.
They believe that eating cat burgers—and fried cat legs and tails—can cure bronchial disease.
It is also believed that feline meat serves as an aphrodisiac.
