Just had to be done. A lovely page showing the disection of cats in glorious
color. The cat lovers will adore seeing them put to this worthy use.

The local SPCA kills thousands of cats each month here in my city. I wish
it weren't so; but if their carcasses can be used to make the lives of
humans better it is a good thing.

Human beings are infinitely more valuable than felines.

Well said.

Mind you, I like cats but I'm not a nutter about them but I wasn't too happy
reading about the way they actually destroy them. A hypobaric chamber sounds
an evil way to die. Essentially, they suck out all of the oxygen and the
poor sods suffocate. Not a nice way to go. Bit of the website below...

THE ETHICS OF USING CATS FOR MEDICAL SCIENCE DISSECTIONS
The question of the ethics of using cats for medical science dissection
and learning can and should be raised. The ethical argument against the use
of cats would be stronger if cats were bred specifically to be killed for
dissection. However, the cats we use are the product of uncontrolled
reproduction of pets. The surplus wind up at the animal shelter. At the
animal shelter, the majority of cats are "euthenized" in a hypobaric
chamber. In this chamber, the air is pumped out until the animal first
passes out, and eventually dies of oxygen starvation. In the great majority
of cases, the carcasses are then either cremated or buried. It is clear
that using these animals which have already been euthenized yields at least
one positive outcome of their sad deaths, one of advancing the teaching of
medical science. Until the pet population explosion is under control and
there is no surplus of euthenized cats, it would seem that a constructive
use of a social tragedy is to be encouraged.

Well, it's obvious that 'someone' made a poor attempt at
trolling. But since you made the comment about the animals being
put to good use...

Years ago in my youth, I worked for a vet. They'd put
down animals and the ASPCA would show up once a week and collect
the carcasses. We'd just put them in plastic garbage bags, tie
them shut and put them outside the backdoor.

On day I became curious and asked what the ASPCA did with
carcasses. Well, they sold them to the knackers. Yes, that's right,
we're talking *soap* and other fine products.

I've often thought that the soap manufacturers should have
given their products better names, just to 'honor' the ingredients.
Instead of Ivory, Fluffy. Instead of Zest, Fido. You get the idea.

I know that the ASPCA probably claims that they cremate
the carcasses, but I'll bet they still sell them to the knackers
when they can. Think about that the next time you climg into the
shower.

Bathing with soap made from feline doesn't bother me any more than that I
eat the outsides of many other animals. And some of them, I eat the
insides, too. Tripe, for example is a delicious--but very stringy--meal.
And liver is a healthy treat.

I have never knowingly eaten a cat, and I can't imagine that I would enjoy
it either way.

But I have eaten other kinds of animals that people keep for pets. Lamb,
veal, chicken, duck, rabbit and squirrel. I've never eaten a raccoon.
