What to choose from? I knew a lot of things that you didn't: I knew about physics and biochemistry and the problems with our political system. Your knowledge revolved around the film industry, dirk biking, and sales.
I look(more)ed at you, with your amazing brown eyes and curly hair, and realized I didn't want to tell you anything about science or politics. I just wanted to tell you that I loved you.
People who have never tasted the succulent even sweet-tasting meat of the common housecat, properly prepared, just won't understand.
Housecat was a specialty of my mothers. She called it roof-rabbit as a euphemism, but even as children we knew exactly what she meant. She learned to cook it du(more)ring the occupation of Poland, a time when her family, though not Jewish, struggled to survive. Meat of any kind being scarce, common sources for it then included mice, horses, pigeons, and, yes, occasionally, cats. For reasons probably having to do with hygiene or cultural taboo, neither dogs nor rats were ever on the menu.
The best way to prepare cat is to slow roast in the oven it within a brine of potatoes and leeks. Cat meat does not barbecue well, however, and gets stringy easily when overcooked. I've often heard people compare cat meat to rabbit, but I think cat meat is discernibly gamier. When served on the bone, it is an absolute must to remove both the head and the tail from the carcass prior to bringing it to the table. Etiquette dictates that there should always be some doubt in the minds of those about to consume it whether it is cat or rabbit being served.
The tenderest meat on the cat is found in the toes and the toe pads. The flesh here, when properly filleted from the rest of the foot and chewed delicately, bursts between the teeth like grapes.
As with all betes de la cuisine, young specimens are preferred over old and females are considered tastier than males. The key to preparing cat meat successfully is to marinate, marinate, marinate, and preferably overnight. This will make the flesh taste less gamey, and make the presentation of the roof-rabbit all the more convincing. Meow!(less)
