Chili Pepper Cat

An interesting story out of Buffalo, NY surfaced today.  Apparently a guy was pulled over by police for some traffic violation or another.  Upon questioning, the officer heard a noise from the trunk and asked the man to open his truck.  It was then revealed that there was a cat in the trunk soaking in a pot of marinade.  When asked why the cat was marinating in a crushed red pepper, chili pepper, salt and oil marinade the man contested that the cat had been “mean” to him earlier in the day.  I don’t think the guy ever admitted to it but authorities assumed he was going to cook the cat up as a meal.  Surely, this guy’s form of punishment for cats isn’t just to marinade them and give them a bath after they’ve learned their lesson. 

This is one of the most outrageous stories I’ve heard in a while.  I’m not a chef by any means but I’m pretty sure you can’t marinade a living animal that still has its fur.  I feel as though the marinade just wouldn’t take.  Also, I don’t think cats are good eatin’.  The marinade does sound tasty though so I might give that a whirl in the future. 

I couldn’t decide which category to place this article in so let the record show that marinating cats really grinds my gears.
