Would you welcome cat food made with vat-grown meat? — 7 Comments

  1. I am unsure of how I feel about this. Part of me is all for it because it is way less cruel, but until I know if there is anything about it that could harm my cats….I just don’t know…

  2. I’m always suspicious of “improvements” on our food. I have doubts that it’s ever done for our benefit. However, if it was done surreptitiously, like many of our processed meats are (think hot dogs, fast foods, etc) and we got samples in the store that tasted pretty good, it could become a hit with people who are opposed to animal cruelty but still eat meat. I’m one of those, although I’ve cut back quite a bit, mostly eating fish, chicken, and lamb once in awhile.

    I’ve actually experienced “fear” around eating, because of reports of illness from bacteria in all kinds of food, including fresh produce. I’ve never been fearful of anything, but food is essential. Since I’m unable to grow my own or pay higher prices at farmer’s markets, I shop at regular markets. We have 6 to choose from, in a 2 mile radius, but sometimes I drive 7 miles to a store like Trader Joes, or Sprout’s Farmer’s Market. I still have some fear, but am not at the paranoid stage. I try to handle food carefully, and wash produce before eating.

    I got very ill from food I consumed at a pot luck this month, and felt the effects for a week. The concept of pot lucks is great, but not everyone is aware of the need for proper food handling and storage. Here I am, off the topic again….

  3. If it’s PETA endorsed, it’s a negative for me.
    Besides, artificial is artificial.
    I understand that it’s akin to our vegetarian “fake meat”, but I don’t divulge in that myself, just as I don’t divulge in fake sugar.
    I don’t like the feeling of being “tricked” by whomever into action. That’s why I so hate daylight savings time. I don’t want to be treated like an idiot.
