Sad Beijing Cats — 4 Comments

  1. The slide show works very well on my computer so it must be good as it’s only temperamental!
    Yes the cats look well fed but some are very dirty, as if they’ve been through muddy puddles maybe? The black and white with his eyes shut looks very bedraggled and sad.
    I couldn’t bear to live in a country where so many cats are abused, like you Marc I’d get into trouble for taking the law into my own hands and I’d be heartbroken even more than I am now just by seeing pictures of them.

    • You’d probably be arrested for something 😉 Feeding the cats and rescuing them or fighting with the people who picked them up to kill them. I am the same. It would drive me nuts to live in China just because of the cats never mind anything else.

  2. Well they look to be pretty well fed. There must be some huge differences of opinion in China if you consider that some eat them (and torture them before killing them because it tastes better) whereas others love them just as we do. The images of the truck with crates of cats was most disturbing. Not even our livestock are treated as such – not that we can talk but it is a simple measurement of gross animal abuse and cruelty. I feel sorry for cat lovers in China and the US and other places where cats are tortured or killed on a regular basis and where there are huge amounts of cats roaming around. It must be very hard as a cat lover in these countries – I for one would lose my mind and probably get myself into terrible trouble taking the law into my own hands or something stupid like that.

    • I think you’re right. There are huge differences in attitude with respect to the cat, which be partly due to the size of the country. In America, people in California are more enlightened than people in the south. That is the impression I get. China is slightly larger than the USA in land mass so I would expect there to be differences in culture throughout the country.

      However, overall something is wrong with cat welfare. For a start is seems that no one neuters their cats and there are lots of stray whole cats. Someone is feeding them though 😉

      The slideshow looks good on my Mac. The image quality is high. Does it work OK for you? Just making sure it works.
