57. BINGO!!! Fact is that people don't eat useful animals unless they have no choice.

People in India don't eat cows because cows are their tractors and plow fields.
People in the USA don't eat horses and mules for the same reason.

The same goes for cats. Cats protect food from vermin and as tempting as a cat might be for a hungry but not starving person, the logical mind says to not to eat the cat becasue it is the only thing protecting your grain from rats, mice and other vermin who would steal the food from you.
