I've been adopted!

Hi. My name is Stew. Yes, Stew, as in "rabbit stew." No, it's not some macabre joke, the truth is that I was being raised as a meat rabbit for someone's dinner.

I am a truly gorgeous and handsome BIG boy at about 9+ pounds. My "breed" of rabbit is called a "New Zealand Black." I am a very sweet, quiet boy with big paws and a chubby fat face. I just want you to pet me and be nice to me.

Perhaps this is a bit direct, but when you see rabbit on a restaurant menu, it's important to know that the rabbit that is being eaten is someone just like me---a loving, sentient boy or girl, mother or father, who knows how to love and feels pain and sadness.

I am such a wonderful boy with so much love to share.
Won't you please adopt me and remind me that people can be nice to animals?
