Back when I was a graduate student (about half a century ago) I 
accidently ran over a raccoon.  In a spirit of "waste not want not" I 
made raccoon stroganoff for myself and two roommates.  It was rather 
tasty, although a bit gamey.  I can't imagine doing that with a cat 
though, or even with a carnivorous wild animal.
