Did you lose your appetite because they did something?
Said something?
Showed you something?

Is a harmful characteristic of a certain kind of food relevant?
Animal protection / slaughterhouses relevant?
Bad manners relevant?

Do we need to figure out the meal?

Was your loss of appetite due to...something said by one of the people? An action by one or more of them? An ingredient in the food? The way the food was prepared? The appearance of the food? The taste of the food? Your knowledge about something related to the kind of food that was being prepared?

Did you lose your appetite because they did something? yope, indirectly
Said something? noish, not directly because of anything they said
Showed you something? yope, once again: not directly

Is a harmful characteristic of a certain kind of food relevant?
Animal protection / slaughterhouses relevant?
Bad manners relevant? no to all

Do we need to figure out the meal? no, except for one tiny aspect of it

So you gathered at someone's house for a meal?
And everyone was going to help prepare it?
Was cooking involved?
Did the meal include meat? Vegetables? Fruit? Bread? Cheese? Condiments? Spices? Drinks?
Would you say that any of these, if included, were connected with your loss of appetite?

So you gathered at someone's house for a meal? correct
And everyone was going to help prepare it? yes
Was cooking involved? yes
Did the meal include meat? yes Vegetables? yes Fruit? no Bread? possibly Cheese? don't think so Condiments? possibly Spices? probably Drinks? we were probably planning to drink something along with the meal, yes, but I don't remember what, and it's of no relevance
Would you say that any of these, if included, were connected with your loss of appetite? no, as stated earlier, the exact ingriedients aren't really all that relevant

did you find out they hadn't washed their hands? no

or that the meat you were eating had been their pet lamb? haha, that's creative, but no. :p

Was it a food item? Or something that you wouldn't think was edible but they were passing off as a food item? Was it part of the decor? Was it a body part (animal or human)?

Did you see someone doing something? Or was it an actual item?

and kaylee kitteh would haz a sad foar forevur...=( I really hope this puzzle won't create any lasting scars - though the actual experience has stuck with me for quite a long time.

So, someone brought a dead cat in the house, right?
Were they trying to find the owner? prepare it for burial? make some kind of an art piece out of it (taxidermy, or some such)? Was the cat recently dead? Had its body been altered in some way (skinned, stuffed, etc.)? Is the location within the house relevant? Please tell me it wasn't actually in the kitchen. Location within the room relevant?

On a chair? On (oh, please no...)a place typically reserved for food, such as a plate, tray, or serving platter?

Was it in the dining room? no, and the room search is probably only going to confuse you, you're looking for someplace more specific (and keep in mind the title of the puzzle - it really applies!
On a chair? no On (oh, please no...)a place typically reserved for food YES, such as a plate, tray, or serving platter? but nothing like this

Altered- by an animal? a person? some kind of equipment? a vehicle? you know what, forget about the "altered" thing, it isn't really a good word - suffice to say, the "alteration" was a result of where I found it...

Were they going to try to get the cat identified? yes Stuffed? no Keep it in, um, "shape" for burial? YES! For cremation? well, possibly, but I don't believe that was what they had in mind...

I think that's enough to call this solved. Good job!



*****SPOILER*****

Back when I was in high school I was invited to one of my classmates and her flatmate for dinner. The latter had just gotten her driving licence, and had been unfortunate enough to run over a cat, killing it.

Thinking the cat's owner would probably like to bury the cat properly, they decided to bring it home and put an ad in the newspaper that if anyone were missing their cat, they could come and collect it for burial. In order to preserve the cat, they thought it a good idea to store it in their freezer (I'm sure this all made perfect sense to them, somehow).

Evidently, they had forgotten about this when I came to visit, and while we were preparing the meal, they asked me to go to the freezer to collect something needed for the dinner. Upon opening the freezer, the sight that met me was that of a dead cat's face glaring up at me.

Needless to say (I would think), I didn't stay for dinner, and in fact, did not eat anything else that day.


Thanks to everyone who stuck with this puzzle! Sorry about the macabre nature of the solution, I can guarantee you it was worse in real life. And hey, we just passed Halloween, didn't we?

Oh, and thanks to Doriana, whose cat-in-a-box-puzzle brought this mamory back to me - I guess it had finally been repressed.
