What animal looks like a cat
It’s a cat!!!”
But the animal rights group says its point is not to harm pets, but rather to end the breeding of an animal that is often kept in cramped, unsanitary conditions.
“They are living in these tiny cages, and they are treated terribly,” said Schenberg. “They are not like dogs and cats.”
While the act of eating dogs and cats is not illegal in Taiwan, the group’s campaign aims to raise awareness of the animals’ plight and the need to change the way they are treated.
“Generally, you can’t see any dog or cat in Taiwan to be slaughtered, but it is happening,” said a group member who took part in the protest.
“Some of them are being eaten in restaurants, and some are dying a terrifying death in the market,” she said. “We want to stop this practice.”
Chen said it is not a problem that the animals are consumed by people.
“I think it is OK that people like dog meat,” Chen said. “I think it is OK that there are people who want to eat dog meat.”
But he said that the consumption of dog and cat meat should be regulated and monitored by the government.
“I think the government should be involved in this industry,” said Chen. “We need to make sure the dogs and cats are not being treated badly.”
The group has also started to push for the government to pass a law that would restrict the sale of dogs and cats.

The group has also started a petition to push for the government to pass a law that would restrict the sale of dogs and cats.
But Chen said that the consumption of dog and cat meat should be regulated and monitored by the government.
“I think the government should be involved in this industry,” he said. “We need to make sure the dogs and cats are not being treated badly.
“I’ve witnessed a lot of cats purring when they’re dying, and when they’re being put to sleep. The vet will say something like ‘They were purring right up until the end’, and people assume they’re happy when they’re purring. That’s just not always the case.” Read more
In cats — as in infants and dogs — researchers still do not know all of the factors that shape the caretaker relationship, but it’s likely a complex mix of genetics, personality and experience. It is possible that even more cats are securely bonded to their owners than the new study found, said Mikel Delgado, an animal behavior researcher at the University of California, Davis, who was not...

Yet another theory is possible: Scientific American believes cats purr to stimulate bones and muscles without exerting a lot of energy. Since cats have very little bone abnormalities or illnesses compared to other animals, this theory seems plausible too. Read more
The population of this animal has been rated to decline by 60% since 1950 and it is estimated their population will fall by addition of 22% in eight years time. The main challenge faced by these animals is the people clearing forests they live in for human habitation as well as illegal hunting. Read more
