Poverty ?

Our son was in court last week (as a witness ) he had to stay the night in an hotel in Bradford. He decided to take a walk after dinner and spotted a man eating cat food out of the can with his hands. I was so shocked I can't get it out of my mind.

Re: Poverty ?

In the 50's catfood was called Jamaican salmon where I lived in the Midlands. black pudding sausages had a ruder name, it was known as Smethwick d!ck.

I am appalled, people should sit down as a family and use a knife and fork! Where are standards going?

Re: Poverty ?

By law dog & cat food must be fit for human consumption. I guess that's because most pet food is eaten on the floor & easy for young children to try it !

Re: Poverty ?

It is a shocker when you see itinerant folk bin dipping for an immediate something to eat , saw it repeatedly when working the streets as a London based motorcycle courier . Some food emporiums left food out for free , hygenically wrapped , after closing for the day , but the Law stopped it by ticketing them for littering , a charitable act kiboshed by officialdom . How sad .

Re: Poverty ?

I had a freind who used to regularly eat dog food and swore by it. Sadly he lost his life one day when he ran out after a car and a bus hit him.

I remember a made up song ,back in the 60s sang to the tune of Belafontes island in the sun .I know all the verses ,but one of them was .
White man why you look so sad ,we got plenty of room in Trinidad,every day you will grow fat eating tin after tin of kit e Kat .
My black friends I worked with on the car assembly line were always getting me to sing the whole song and they laughed .
Prob not the done thing these days.PS that verse is the chorus.

Re: Poverty ?

Seeing someone eating pet food may look disgusting but more in our imagination, as actually nutritious.

Seeing it though seems indicative of this Governments lack of any real compassion and welfare for its citizens .... as seen by the flourish and need for food banks and charities help , in the worlds 6th richest country.

Sometimes we care more for the welfare of our animals than our fellow humans. I am surprised though this homeless person chose to eat pet food as some pet foods cost more than regular food ,he would have been better off eating a cheaper product like a tin of beans..

Pet food Companies knowing we want only the best for our pets and want to see their Pet's food to be nutritious..... so actually use Human tasters on new products

Re: Poverty ?

The baked beans suggestion reminds me of my biker days. Before setting off for Spain we used to pack three tins of Heinz and a spoon in our tank bags. The bikes tool kit was used to get at the beans.
Hmmm happy days.
