I made some cider a few days ago and just noticed today that there is a cat hair floating in one of my carboys. Am I screwed?

Probably fine. I'd just leave it in there(likely to do more damage trying to get than what the hair will do by itself). Nobody but you and the 1000s of HBT members will ever know.

Another prime example that shows the only good cat is a cat in a very tasty Chinese dish..............

This is absolute nonsense. I'm sure other countries make fine dishes with cats.

I've got two cats myself. Seems to me it is rather inevitable to have this happen, and rather impossible to void the kitchen of the random floating cat hairs that wisp around on a daily basis - so I am with you in your worries.

You could do like that Simpson's episode where they let the dogs swim around in the beer at the factory... but with your cats. What sort of flavor would this impart? Let us know how it comes out!
