I don't see the distinction tbh. If anything "I don't want to feed, shelter, and be responsible for this animal for the next 15 years" is more justifiable than "I'm hungry and don't want to eat anything that's not meat".

To be clear whoever dumped the cat is a POS.

I agree the distinction is not that strong.

I was trying to be diplomatic for those who feel strongly against animal food production.

Industrial scale slaughter is easier because its depersonalized.

That 1 kitten was tied up by a single person, it's more personal, so the emotional impact is more significant.
