What's New ' PUSSY CAT' ? Cooking feral pussies (That means Cats) Not going downstairs for dinner..

An Australian has come up with a novel solution to the millions of feral cats roaming the Outback: eat them.

A feral cat will eat almost anything that moves, including lizards, small mammals and spiders

Wild cats - the escaped descendants of domestic cats - kill millions of small native animals each year. Now the tables have turned and they find themselves on the menu.

A bush tucker competition held at the weekend in Alice Springs, in the Red Centre of the continent, featured something new: wild cat casserole.

"It's a white meat," said Kay Kessing, who came up with the recipe. "They vary a lot. The first cat I cooked didn't have a strong flavour. I put a lot of ingredients with it and made a beautiful stew.

"This cat that I've cooked is slightly larger. It has a slightly stronger flavour, but not as strong as rabbit."

A children's book author and illustrator, Mrs Kessing campaigns to save wild-life from the depredations of cats and other introduced animals, including camels, donkeys and wild horses.

Feral cats, which arrived with the British in 1788, now occupy most of the continent. Studies of their stomach contents show they eat almost anything that moves, including lizards, small mammals and spiders, as well as 180 species of Australian native birds.

Mrs Kessing said she would never dream of cooking a domestic cat. "It should always be wild," she told ABC radio. "And we should be eating donkeys and horse meat, like the French do."

But health authorities in the Northern Territory warned that eating cats could be risky. "It is not illegal to eat feral cat for your own consumption, or your family's," said the director of the health department.

Vest Say's, feral cats should be culled but not necessarily eaten, although we could export them to China where they are a delicacy, like deep fried rat and Bow Wow Chow.

"But there is no guarantee that any feral animal that hasn't been subject to post-mortem examination is safe."

While kangaroo and camel appear on Outback restaurant menus, feral cat has yet to capture the nation's taste.

To get the pot boiling we need a few bizarre recipes, allow your imagination to run wild, so get moving on those 69 different ways on how to make a pussy edible.

We could start off with pureed pussy paws in cream, followed with a ginger spiced tom puddy or a black Catsserole with boiled neutered nuts.

Get licking those lips, Vest.

Lol! There is a colony of feral cats in a park not far from where I live. I can assure you most of them are horrendously diseased ... you won't be finding those potential poison puddins on my table anytime soon. YuK!

The French have a good recipe for cooking 'Rat' and genuine Hungarian sausage/salami contains donkey meat, (which gives it a good flavor) Humans are like cats in many ways, in that if it moves humans will eat it. Actually humans are much worse, because they will eat things that cats would not. It's the humans who exploit and destroy the planet on a much grander scale than all the cats put together. So let us exteminate each other first. The war has already started, and will finish when we are all dead, only cats, lizards and roaches will survive. Despite their varying level of intelligence, they will survive longer than the human race.
More wildlife has been lost or brougt to extinction as a result of human intervention than caused by any quadraped. And that is absolute truth. No pussy-pie for me. (certainly not any that meows'!)
