Hi, my name is Kay and I'm new to both this forum and veg*nism, so I'll just introduce myself here. I'm 19 years old and a student. I am currently on a vegetarian diet and working towards being a vegan(phasing out cheese and eggs, and would prefer to achieve this asap!).

oh, one big thing about me; I REALLY love rabbits, I adore them so much,(ok this might sound crazy) I'm one of them!

and there was this guy whom I was friends with, and this was before I became veg, and well...since he really fancied me, I thought ok I'm going to tell him something that I feel is important to me(yes, I love rabbits THAT much), and I would tell him how much I love rabbits, and EVERY TIME he would respond something along the line of 'Yeah, I love them too, they taste good' or 'Yah I love eating them!' or its variants. it might be just a joke to him, but I find his callous attitude really offensive and unfunny,and after the second time I started to become visibly irritated. I did tell him to refrain from making this kind of 'jokes', but it seemed to only spur him on. One day I said something and he said somethign to me like 'ARGH!!! in your perfect world it would be full of rabbits or something!'.. SERIOUSLY, the gall of him. Needless to say I stopped having anything to do with him shortly after.

Does this kind of thing ever happen to you??

Now you're asking why I'm telling you this; because it might sound like a really weird reason, but other than the conventional reasons(economical, health, etc.), I am becoming a vegan because rabbits are vegans! I love them so much, I want to eat like(ok,not TOTALLY like) them too, and I feel stopping eating meat/animal-by products will help me get closer to them, if that even makes sense?

ta!

Welcome to VB! U've never met someone who liked rabbits so much, but I'm a crazy cat lady at heart so who am I to judge?


(although I wouldn't eat meat to be like a cat. yuck.)

congratulations on going veg*n!

Welcome! I like rabbits - didn't know there was a thread for them! I used to have a dwarf lop, marmalade coloured, and psycho. And there are loads that live in the grounds of my Hall of Residence.

Good to meet you!

Welcome! (And nose wiggles from my rabbits, Hans the Rex and Franz the Dutch!)

I've become more fond of rabbits since I adopted a few from the local shelter. But my favorite animals are probably manatees and dugongs (for personality) and elk (for looks). My town zoning board would have a serious problem if I were to adopt a bull elk....
