So, when a cat dies in the U.S., we usually dig a hole, bury it, and more often than not, perform a small ceremony for the cat.
Here in Haiti though, it's a little bit different... Today one of our cats died from eating a chicken bone sadly enough. At first I thought we were just going to put it in the bag that our neighbor gave to us, and then bury it somewhere. However, I soon realized I shouldn't have assumed such a thing...our neighbor was going to eat our cat for his meal tonight.
Cat is a delicacy for Haitians, especially on Christmas, so we will definitely be keeping a close eye on our cats at the orphanage as Christmas approaches, because we wouldn't want to see any of our cats in a main food dish on Christmas day!
