Koreans do not eat cats.
Not to be argumentative, but cat was on the Korean menus back in the day and a quick check with Wikipedia seems to indicate they continue serving such to this day. I can't say they eat cat, but they certainly sell and serve it to those so inclined! BTW, if you ever have a hankering to try guinea pig, next time you are in Peru, it's pretty good! LOL. ;)

I don't want to challenge Wikipedia, but I worked for a year in Korea in the late 1970s, spent a good deal of time travelling around the country and never heard or saw anything that would suggest that they ate cats. Dogs, yes, best served as keh tong with lots of gotchu.

I know that in south east China they eat cats.
Also, when I was a boy in England, there was a rumor that the local Chinese takeaway served cat instead of chicken. Our pet cat disappeared. Put me off sweet and sour chicken for years.

I can't help but form a mental image of a group of Korean waitstaff peeking around a corner and pointing while choking back guffaws, "Look at the dumb American, he's eating the cat!!! :D

And a similar group of Korean waitstaff elsewhere pointing and saying, "Look at the dumb American, he doesn't know he's eating cat!!! :D

Makes one realize why some elect vegetarianism.

But is it really vegetable!?!?
