A Letter to PWEETA
(People Who Enjoy Eating Tasty Animals)

Question: What's the best way to cook a cat? I was thinking of slow cooking one.
A letter from Jose-in Miami

PWEETA fully supports your right to eat cat (felis domesticus), or any other game meat in the privacy of your own home. On a "libertarian" medium like the Internet, there is no end of sites dedicated to the construction of homemade bombs and weapons of mass destruction. However, a quick check on any search engine will uncover a striking lack of quality cat eating advice available in English.

PREPARING YOUR CAT FOR CONSUMPTION

First, get a large cutting board and lay out your cat. Lop off the head, the tail and the feet with a sharp butcher's knife. These parts of the cat contain little usable meat, so toss them aside.

Next, make a longitudinal incision on the cat's abdomen. Reach your hand (wear gloves!) into the body cavity, and remove all of the internal organs. Discard them- especially the liver. It may look tasty, but the liver of a felis domesticus is frequently too toxic for human consumption.

SKINNING YOUR CAT
There’s more than one way to skin a cat- our exhaustive research uncovered two. On this site, two High School students meticulously guide you step-by-step through skinning a cat - complete with diagrams. To summarize, use a sharp knife to trim off the skin, and pull it back, snipping away at the muscle tissue.

Gourmands like to skin their cats differently. They hate shun using a skining knife, calling it crude. They reccomend you grab the loose skin around the head stump, and using a pair of pliers, peel it back off the carcass like a banana, rolling it off the body. The final step before cooking is to wash the meat of stray gristle and hairs. Nobody likes cat hair in their food.

COOKING YOUR CAT
Now you are ready to cook! One USENET account recommends placing a cat in a very high powered magnetron microwave. This device supposedly can cook a cat in approximately 10 minutes- the proteins are denatured (cooked), and sugars caramelized by microwave heating. The cat may be "cooked" but will it taste good? If you've ever tried to microwave a raw hamburger, you'll know the answer is "no." For the best taste, our reader inquired about possibly slow cooking a feline. That's exactly what we at PWEETA recommend- a slow cooked Beer Roasted Cat. Other cat recipes you may enjoy are classic Cat Tamales, Cat in Spicy Ginger Sauce, and Cat Au Gratin.

BEER ROASTED CAT
1 cat cut into roast
1 can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup
1 cube of beef bouillon
1 clove of garlic
1 Fine Irish Stout, a lot like a popular dark Irish Beer®, butNOT that brand at their lawyers' request. They alledge this article, educating others in the legal eating habits of over 100 million people world-wide, and specifically in rising East Asian markets, is "highly offensive."

Cover and soak cat roast in salt water for 24 hours. Drain water and then cover and soak in beer for 6 hours. Drain and place in crock pot with your cans of soup. Add a clove of garlic, and a cube of beef bouillon. If you start to slow cook your cat in the morning with your George Foreman Cooker (or it's ilk), you'll have finely cooked feline in time for supper.

If a slow cooker is not available, a cat can be baked at 350 degrees for 2-3 hours in a conventional oven and still come out pretty good. Beer Roasted Cat is fantastic served with mashed potatoes, collard greens, and fresh, homemade egg rolls. When planning a full meal just remember- cat is a course best served hot!

Cat may not be the most glamorous, or tastiest of game meats, but with a little thought and preparation, Baked Cat can make the belly of the persnicketiest diner glow with home baked goodness.

Understandable, after all castro's an evil ruthless murdering monster! A jew reacts the same way with hitler, and a mojon runs in the opposite direction when he sees a toilet.....the latter you do understand, don't you caquitas? After all you are a fecal entity, you are terrified of being flushed!

Fast food
The main chain is the state-run El Rapido restaurants serving chicken, chips, sandwiches and other fast-food - there are a few similar establishments which only take dollars and are considered a treat by many Cubans. The food is, however, greasy and grim. Spare a thought for the salivating mutts which congregate around these establishments at night - they have usually skived off from their homes and their stomachs are well adapted to chicken bones and anything else you might care to throw their way.

Don't expect to see cats in Cuba - most of them have been eaten, and not always by the dogs.

Cono chico parece que ustedes si comen gato en Cuba...sera por eso que hay tantas ratas como tu balsero?

PONCE, Puerto Rico - Cuba's economic crisis is so severe that people are eating cats, the leader of a Cuban animal protection agency said.

"You won't see cats in gardens, and it is very hard to find stray cats roaming the streets, because people are hunting them for human consumption," Nora Garcia, head of the private Cuban Association for the Protection of Animals, said.

"The few cats that are left must be placed in cages or locked up inside homes."

The cat shortage has led to proliferation of rats in Havana, causing health problems, Garcia added.

Garcia traveled from Cuba to attend the 14th Symposium of the Animal Protection Federation held in Ponce, on Puerto Rico's south coast.

YOU WON'T see many cats prowling the twisting, unlit streets of old Havana these days. Strays or pets, most have fallen victim to a people living on the edge of starvation.

Under ever-tighter rationing since the collapse of the Soviet bloc, the poorest of Cubans began devouring the cat population last year. Even the tiny allowance of meat in their ration books is rarely available after they queue for hours at state warehouses.

'Cats were among the first to go since they're said to taste okay. I had my three robbed from my house in January,' said Sylvia, a 32-year- old unmarried mother who lives in the Playa district and works as an administrator in a state hospital.

'I've heard of people eating dogs, those little ones that have no fur, but I think that's the exception. They say dog meat tastes bad and you still see plenty of stray dogs. Most people have drawn the line there. So far.'
