I wouldn't think of eating a pet as it would seem like cannibalism, but strays will be fair game for the roasting spit or stew pot, dogs or cats. The Lewis & Clark expedition ate a fair amount of dog meat as well as horse, donkey and mule in addition to wild game. Some of the men preferred dog meat to any other, others did not but ate it just the same.
If you're hungry enough you'll eat just about anything that doesn't kill and eat you first.
