I fear for my life!

A wonderful be back in Dubai. A new the city. Great view from the top. A swimming pool and a gym at the!..but now i fear for my life! Thus, I have decided to put on a mask to avoid being killed while roaming the streets around the old souk. You don't dig it? the following:

DUBAI: Dubai divided over cooking cats report

"There has been a huge response to our report on stray cats being cooked and eaten in Dubai’s labour camps with scores of readers writing in to show their disgust and others registering their approval of the practice. While seven-year-old Coral said she was “very mad and sad,” other readers suggested different recipes and claimed eating the stray cats helped rid the streets of the “vermin.” Municipality officials said yesterday that while cat meat cannot be served at restaurants, there is no way of controlling what people eat in private. “We are not aware of incidents such as this, but it may well be happening. We make sure that such food is not served in hotels but what individuals do inside their own homes really cannot be monitored,” said Abdullah Rafeeu, the Assistant Director General for Environment and Public Health Affairs. Monday’s report detailed how labourers were now banned from bringing cats into their labour camps and eating them."


Anyway, this afternoon I managed to sneak out of the house and was actually at the Fortune project site where a fire broke out recently, killing at least 2 workers during their break. Very sad....if only all these blood sucking employers would spend some money to ensure fire safety on site. A friend working in another project next to it...actually saw the entire episode. He was deeply this day.

shhhhhhhhhhhhh....don't blow my not a feline ok?

Oh.. stick to seafood and veggies!!! I was offered some suspect meat in a Mexican border town. I suspected it was dog or cat. I politely declined and munched on the lard-fried corn chips and sipped tequila.

Ack! But one should never judge other people if we don't know what it's like to be REALLY hungry!

I read that in Korea, doctors prescribe dog soup for patients who recently were very sick. Dog has alot of protein, supposedly, but most Westerners find the thought of eating their pet sickening. Funny how some animals end up on the wrong side of the food chain and others are protected even more so than most American children.

Cats have the same taste than rabbits

In same countries (USA for instance) it's unimaginable to eat rabbits
In France we can imagine, we have a great imagination (I must say however that I'm not a meat eater, I prefer vegetable or fish)

Take care, black feline
