Bit macabre but cats in curry?

Has anyone heard of this?

Just been told of a person who got what they thought was a seed stuck in their teeth at a curry house, when they went to the dentists as it was hurting them and they couldn't remove it; they were told it was a microchip from a dog or cat!

I found similar complaints online for other curry houses...

My cat used to follow me everywhere and wait outside shops etc for me. The girls behind the counter at the chinese thought tis was hilarious and would invite him in so they could feed him prawns. Dh told me it was so he would go back alone and they could eat him Shock

He first started going there 3 years ago and he still has not been eaten. It's an urban myth.

That is gross.

Not for this individual i've been told about, they are sueing the restaurant!

I work in a chinese. I see what they are cooking. I see their deliveries. My boss knows most of the chinese restaraunt owners in our town.

It is an urban myth. Or at least in my town it is.

fluffy91 · 08/02/2011 16:52

Well, I don't know what area you live in but this restaurant is in the black country?

I'm in Teesside.

fluffy91 · 08/02/2011 16:55

Aaaah your miles away.
I'm glad it is a myth over there.

The restaurant concerned in my area doesn't really have a leg to stand on given the microchip MUST have come from a dog or cat.

No because this is a curry one. I can't remember the name but it is in Lye in Stourbridge.

Wing Wah better not be serving dog or cat, i've eaten there before.. :(

Microchips are quite big, I'd be surprised if it was capable of getting lodged in someone's teeth. Sounds like bs to me.

when I was at school teachers wife bought and cooked a rabbit from the butchers

gave the bones to a friend who was a vet - to be told it was actually a cat

i have no reason not to believe this

also mum grew up in the 50/60s in a very well known sea side resort - chinese take away was shut down when remains of rats were found in the bins

enjoy your teas everyone LOL!

What if it got lodged part way in a gum but you didn't realise?
Possible but I don't think the person i heard from would lie to be honest. They are apparently sueing the restaurant concerned.

It's an urban myth.

You'll fInd this by word of mouth and on-line, but not in any official reports, court proceedings, or local newspapers.

Anyhow, cat is a delicacy: they wouldn't waste it on an ignorant gweilo.

peggotty · 08/02/2011 17:01

I thought they were bigger than that? Still just sounds like one of those stupid stories that people make up though, it really does.

fluffy91 · 08/02/2011 17:02

I'm afraid i can't remember the name kormachameleon
Its a curry house in Lye, stourbridge. Will mention if the name comes to me.

Fluffy91: don't mean to impugn your source, but would be interested to know when they have an actual date in an identifiable court.

fluffy91 · 08/02/2011 17:03

Like i said before, you never know so its possible, but i don't think the person i heard it off would lie.

fluffy91 · 08/02/2011 17:04

onimolap I will post if i find out.

OP posts:
peggotty · 08/02/2011 17:04

What are they sueing them for? Is it their cat? Why is it any different to getting a bone lodged in your gum? If it's really a microchip they will be able to trace an owner. They might have a reason to sue. Assuming all this crap is true of course Hmm

They are suing them because they weren't told that they were eating dog or cat.
They only found out when the dentist told them what the object was.
I would imagine they should be able to trace the owner yeah.
