I am an abolitionist vegan who loves all animals, and who adores rabbits. Rabbits have been my non-human life companions for the past 15 years. I rescued them from different kinds of predicaments and have spent my time, energy and money caring for them. They are at the center of my life and I cannot to this day imagine waking up to anything but little persons with antennas hopping across the house. However, I am not more shocked or distressed when I see a rabbit in someone’s plate anymore than when I see a pig, a lamb, a chicken, a duck, a cow, an egg, a yogurt or any other animal or animal product. Not all animals have the good fortune of being rescued, but all deserve not to be used for our pleasure and convenience. So to all the people I know, and don’t know, who open their hearts and homes to animals in need, please consider all the other animals used for food, clothing and entertainment, and become vegan.
