Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.


Chinese Will Eat Anything

We used to joke about ketchup sounding like cat soup.

It’s not funny in China because they eat cat soup there.

A truck filled with 800 live cats (the meat is fresher that way) was stopped by a veteran Shanghai cat rescuer.

The cats were on their way to a market to be slaughtered fresh for customers and then put in hot pots….yum!

After a standoff of several hours, cat lovers raised $1,320 to buy the whole lot.

Now they are looking for homes for the critters…and if

that doesn’t work, maybe breed them and sell them for a profit.

The frightened cats bit people, hid out in corners of the truck and tried to run away.

In southern China, cat meat is a delicacy.

If you dip their bodies in hot oil and deep fry them, leaving their heads out…animal lovers will get angry at that, too.

Yup…the Chinese will eat anything…including Whole Roasted Camel!

What’s the strangest thing you have ever eaten?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
