According to the L.A. Times, China's Guangzhou, formerly known as Canton, is currently the scene of protest and outrage among the Chinese over the use of cats as food.
“Cat meat is good for women. You can eat it in the summer or winter. It is very light. Men usually prefer dog. It is like yin and yang. Cat is yin and dog is yang,” said customer Jiang Changlin, who works for the local government.
He recommended that visitors try one of Guangdong's most famous recipes, “dragon fighting tiger,” a dish made with both snake and cat, its distinctiveness coming from the competing power of the ingredients.
