It is wrong. They are pets.

Dogs and cats are emotionally closer to humans so we see them as a part of ourselves.

I have 3 dogs and 2 cats, I also have a snake, and a toucan but I don't bond with them as I do with my dogs and cats. My grandma lives in the country and she has chickens, cows, pigs etc. I don't bond emotionally with the chickens, cows and pigs because they don't understand what I want, they don't care if I give them a kiss or not whereas my dogs and cats are like children, they love to give me kisses, they are happy when I hug them and they understand my commands...dogs and cats are similar to humans in that aspect.

I don't think you should eat dogs or cats because they're kinda on a equal level with people. I mean, they're our pets or friends or whatever. Same goes with horses. These animals help us humans out, so why eat them? Cows, chickens, pigs.. nobody really keeps those animals as pets or friends, and they don't do an awful lot to benefit humans, so I understand why people eat them, they're bred to be eaten. Plus they taste good.



I completely agree!! dogs and cats become our friends because we bond with them and that's what I was trying to say before. We don't eat our friends...

Well since we are so attached to dogs and cats and view them as pets, we think it's wrong to eat them. In many cultures, they eat dogs/cat because they don't have the same perspective as us, so they believe it's ok. I would never eat a dog/cat because it sounds gross, but I don't care if people eat them.

dont really see why not.
we eat pretty much everything else.
and intelligence is not really a reason either. lots of sea animals are just as high as dogs and cat.

Think of it this way. If you were a pet/companion/whatever to another species, would you like it if your owners ate other humans? I think it is due to this that I would feel guilty if I ate a dog, as I have a pet dog. Though I don't condemn others for eating cats or dogs.

no I suppose it isn't wrong but it'd be too sad to do that (yh I know people do eat dogs and cats)

Meat is meat and the only line I draw is cannibalism. That being said I've eaten dog once. Not bad but not worth it. Meh.

Personally, I wouldn't eat a dog or a cat bc I've had them as pets before. But I'm not gonna say anything about people who actually do, lol. Because I eat moose meat. and I guess that's no different, so by all means. Just don't eat my cat or dog xD

To me, yes.
Dogs and cats are my pets.

I'd feel the same way about cows, chickens, etc if I kept them as pets.

Edit: woah, OP finally got banned.
