The Pusao, Siopao with Cat Meat (Karne ng Pusa))

I refrained from eating siopao before. Why? There was a rumor that siopao filling was made of cat meat. We all know that cats are raised as pets, not for its meat. Cat meat is not common in trade so eating such is a yuck! Besides eating such is not unethical. Imagine eating your pet!

Now, siopao is one of my favorite buy. I never believed that its filling is made of cat meat. Who could resist the yummy taste of popular asado and bola bola.

Is the rumor about pusa siopao true?

I asked my favorite siopao store about the rumor. They said the issue is vague. According to them, it came from Chinese people – the pioneer siopao maker.

My better half said: It might be true. There was a television news. A group of people are catching wild cats. Those cats are being sold to siopao maker. Hmmm…..

I also searched about it on web. Never found a clear answer. Do you know about this? Please tell me!
