I can only repeat myself: Unless you pay a significant amount of money for your food will it never be something unusual in China. These days does nobody eat "exotic" animals for nutrition - farming chicken is the cheapest way by a mile to grow meat all over the world. (Fun fact: It's also the most climate friendly one...)

Yep. If it was cat, you'd know and have paid extra.

Shhh, don't spoil the mystery...it is so much more exciting to imagine you ate a cat...
OMG, I visited China and I survived!

No, but I prefer whale raw!

Raw whale tastes like liver. I had it in Iceland. I liked it

The difference between a cat and rabbit is minimal, taste, flavour and texture are the same. The difference is in the rib bones, one has round bones, the other flat bones.

Get out of thd tourist areas and cities, plenty of places where chicken is more expensive than kitty.....

Less liver taste raw than when cooked.

I've had it both ways (in Norway);

That's a normal dinner plate... given the size and the eight legs does this only leave tarantulas as option. I went for "lime and black pepper"...
