One of my friends from the province of Thai Binh told me that it is famous for cat meat. They kill thousands of cats every day and there are heaps of restaurants along the main streets there. Cats from everywhere, other cities, from the mountains, and cats also control and kill thousands of rats in the fields. I was attending my colleague's wedding and I was shocked that he served cat meat. It's hard to tell the difference between cat meat and chicken if you are not from Thai Binh . Residents of Thai Binh say that cat meat can release your bad luck and they eat it early in the month.
