When you think about eating cats, the first race of men that comes to mind are of course those legendary gormandizers of animals small and tall, the Chinese. However, it seems Peruvians have gone a step further than their trans-Pacific brethren by hosting a yearly, two-day Cat Eating Festival:
The ‘Gastronomical Festival of the Cat’ sees townsfolk in Canete, near Lima, feast on the fluffy pets for two days. They believe that eating cat burgers â€“ and fried cat legs and tails â€“ can cure bronchial disease. It is also believed that feline meat serves as an aphrodisiac. The cats are bred especially for this festival â€“ which takes place at the end of September on the Day of Santa Ifigenia.
If you speak Spanish, watch this video and translate it in the replies so we can all drink in the lulz of Peruvians housing Cat leg burgers.
