Enter Cat Market Where Cat Meat Is Sold For N25,000

'Recently dog meat has drawn a lot of attention, but cats get almost none. This frustrated me, so I decided to capture one of the street markets.
'The tradition is wrapped in superstition. The meat is eaten at the start of every month to ward off bad luck, boost libido, and even to gain the agility of the cat.

'But it's a dreadful situation. The butchers want tough meat so they terrorize the cats in the belief it will flood them with adrenaline.

'Cats are space sensitive, so they throw them all in the death cages and kill them outside then lay the carcasses on top.'

Ms Brown said some of these cats are house pets taken from the streets by snatchers, adding: 'You can hear how terrified they are.'

Specialty restaurants that serve cat meat - a delicacy in the south east Asian country - are booming, with dishes fetching between £43 and £57 (1.36 to 1.82 million Vietnamese Dong).
Some of the cats are wearing collars, suggesting they could have been snatched from loving homes and are now awaiting their fate of being killed, cooked and sold

Reports suggest Vietnam banned cat restaurants in 1997 during a rat plague but Ms Brown says the industry has thrived despite the law.

She claimed 'little tiger' meat is so popular, many of the cats are smuggled in tightly-packed trucks from neighbouring China and Laos to fuel the demand.

But there are health risks involved with consuming the meat, she said, as it is sometimes sourced from stray cats.

However, she says said this is not enough to stop opportunistic tourists from trying the meat in search of an exotic traveller's tale.
'People have died from eating this in Vietnam, there are significant health risks as many of the cats are stay and carry infections,' she said.

'Despite this, I am still coming across foreigners with a 'when in Rome attitude' to trying it out.

'This is all the more reason to help the animal rescue teams and raise awareness.'
