Thank you for accepting this debate. This is a debate in which I feel very strongly. When I mean cat I mean the domesticated and stray cats.

Intelligence is not a way to defend cats not being consumed. Pigs are in fact smarter than Cats. They're shown to be as smart as dogs and chimps. Since they're at least as smart as Dogs that means they're smarter due to dogs being smarter than cats. If we can kill 115 million pigs each year than we can surely eat a cat.

Overpopulation of cats is a big time problem. 860 thousand cats are euthanized each year. We're wasting meat that can be used to eat. There is about 70 million cats homeless in the streets that are feral. Feral cats are attacking people and killing about a billion birds. Instead of letting these homeless,feral cats attacking and killing birds we should eat them. By doing that we're saving birds and reducing the feral cats.

Eating cats is a quick easy efficient way to produce meat. Female cats can achieve their first heat as early as 4 1/2 month. This allow a fast quick easy way to produce cats that will make it easier to mate,reproduce and eat. Cats take little space compared to pigs,and cows. Cows eat 24 pounds a day compared to a average 8 pound cat needing 240 calories a day. Eating cats is easier and quicker way to produce meat.

It doesn't matter if a cat is a household pet. We don't have a single care in the world if we eat a cow unless you're a vegan or vegetarian. But look there are people who can't consume different kinds of meat for religious purposes. Jews can't eat pork, Muslims can't pork and Hindu's can't eat cows. Yet we still consume them without any care in the world. They're in the minority and we can't a cow because of the majority deems it wrong and unnatural?

You bring strong points, it'll be hard to counter them but I'll try. We do not know if cat meat is delectable let alone safe for human consumption. While it is highly rumored that Asians eat cats and dogs, we would have to convince the rest of the world to. As for the meat wasted, it can be just as well given to dogs. I'm not sure how to respond to the religions
