Shocking and horrible , yes. And it has to stop.
But what about the rest of the world ? In Italy - on the countryside - they take a cat for fermentation of the wine , just like the Chinese did ( or do?) with the rice wine. And I think that a lot more people on countrysides in the world , also do this. In the US there are centers from where a Asian breeder distribute on-line purchased cat meat. That means that selling and distribute cat and dog meat is not forbidden in some US states. Ect , ect. It's a nightmare.

Signed,thanks. I'm not even sure how to begin my rant as i sit on my sofa wih 3 of my wonderfull cats beside me. Everyday i think of those cats$&dogs that are being killed for dinner in countries such as China,Korea,Bali,and the Phillipines but Switzerland??? I'm shocked. How can a wealthy,educated and progressive country allow this??? Which country is next for us to worry about????''i'm mortified as this is developing into an epidemic. How can this beautiful earth breed such a pathetic species called man...

Even though this is in German, if you have ever signed a petition for Avaaz just enter your email in the first line and press "senden" and if you never have just put you name. email and country.

Noted and signed...thanks Nicole. Lenicka R., respectfully, I'm not sure who you know that uses cats that way, but in Italy, they cats are like royalty. Even the Pope, for one, is a huge cat lover. Anecdotal evidence is highly unreliable. Because something happens, that doesn't mean that it is accepted. Please don't condemn entire countries (e.g., US, Italy) where some would kill or die for their companion animals because of the alleged actions of a few, as it is offensive and irresponsible to the gross majority of the people of those countries. Moreover, the site that you site in your comment is thankfully a hoax and was uncovered as such some time ago.

The human race is surely sinking ever-deeper into the cess-pit of depravity and brutality. We are becoming a species of mindless, soul-less and heartless monsters. We are losing our compassion, our empathy and we certainly have already lost all moral ethics worldwide. We are decimating this wonderful earth of ours, we are destroying all other species through our own greediness, what will WE do when they have all gone and its too late?.
