We’re going out of town this weekend. Well… more like staying in a hotel in Anaheim. Still it’s out of our house. And we’re going to celebrate Yvonne’s 30th birthday. Yup. My wife is old.
I was looking up restaurants to eat near our hotel. I looked up Google maps to see close restaurants, and it pointed to this one review for Catal Restaurant & Uva Bar. The first line caught my attention.
** I will be AVOIDING this restaurant until they remove RABBIT from the menu. What an antiquated idea for dinner. Rabbits are intelligent, affectionate, trainable (yes, litter pans etc.) creatures if given the chance by responsible pet owners. They are as much of a part of the family for many as a cat or a dog. Would you eat your cat/dog? Think about it! *
Yes, I would eat my cat or dog if that was acceptable in our culture. Cats and dogs are delicacies in other countries. And eating rabbit is, as far as I know, is acceptable in America. Chickens are pets to some families. Should we stop eating chicken? Pigs are part of the family too. Have you seen Babe? Should I stop eating bacon?
The premise of avoiding a restaurant because they rabbit on the menu is ridiculous. You might as well avoid all meat eating places, cause someone somewhere has that animal you’re eating for a pet.
Now please stop eating pets! Please! Think of the children!
