    Default Where can I get cow's blood?

    I am a hybrid vampire.

    Most of the feeding I've done in my life is in the psi manner --- even back when I was in denial of (running away from) the fact that I'm a vampire. However, since I've accepted that I'm a vampire, I've more-or-less verified that I'm capable of feeding on cow's blood too.

    This probably means that I could feed off human blood too --- but there are reasons why I'd rather stick to cow's blood. First of all, I'm a bit of a hypocondriac, and therefore can't handle the thought of the blood-born illnesses I could get from human blood (like HIV/AIDS). But there's also the issue that the whole reason I'd rather use blood than energy-feeding in the first place is so that I don't want to be in a position of having to feed off of a human source at all. There's tons of reasons why, in my life, I really really really need independence from having to feed on human sources.

    Thing is ---- cow's blood is difficult to come by. (The verifying I did with regard to my feeding ability was on very small quantities.) around here (East Tennessee) you can't just walk into a supermarket and buy cow's blood.

    It's also not so easy finding a butcher who will be willing to save for you the blood when he cuts up his meat.

    And as for ordering it online ---- well, Google isn't being much help there. Maybe I just haven't found the right search-string, but I'm having no luck finding where to order cow's blood. I've found tons of hits about cow's blood in fiction, how to make cow's blood soup (like I'd want to wast the little bit of cow's blood I *can* get on making soup) -- but no luck on finding any place where I can order cow's blood ---- let alone ultra-clean cow's blood. (After all -- I'm, once again, a hypocondriac.)

    And no --- I don't have resources to have a cow in my backyard for feeding purposes. Even if I did, I have religious nozy neighbors who would give me trouble if I was feeding on backyard cattle. Not to mention --- I probably would have to puncture or cut the cow every time I needed to feed -- and how would I explain *that* to the vet? (And I'd have to go to the vet, coz this hypocondriac would need to keep her cow in the best of health.)

    So, in short, I can't have my own cow to feed off of -- nor do I know any place to order cow's blood from.

    So does anyone have any help? Any advice? (Any web-links?)

    I was told that if you walk into a butcher and say that you're making black pudding they'll understand. If you tell them about how it's your favourite food (maybe on the second visit) and how you like to make it they might make sure to keep some in reserve for you.
    This isn't from first hand experience though.

    Thanks. I tried mentioning Black Pudding to a butcher I had spoken to a few times before. Didn't really work -- he still was very spooked. But thanks for the suggestion anyway.

    Ah, I'm sorry I was of no help. You'd think that would be fine....

    You could call around to the butcher's in your area. Just ask "Do you sell beef's blood for food?" If he does ask, you could always say your grandparents are coming in from Poland or Russia and what to make blood rice (or whatever you'd like to say) for dinner and you're getting supplies. Most people won't ask, especially in areas with a lot of ethnic people around.

    Well ---- I finally found something in an Asian grocery store in the area ---- it's called "Beef Blood" instead of "Cow's Blood".

    I tried cows blood before it didn't taste as good as human but it did the job, for a will. I got it from a relative my Aunt she's been a butcher for many years I told her that I believed I was a vampire she didn't even look at me weird she had a friend that was a vampire, it was quite a surprise to me because my family could be the most closed minded people in the world.
    My moments are just moments with out you but with you they become memories of a life time.
