Rabbit Lovers Hopping Mad Over Catty Remarks

(Letter to the Editor - August 8, 2007; Page A11)

As someone who rescues rabbits, fosters rabbits for the House Rabbit Society and enjoys them as indoor pets along with my three dogs, I was horrified to read your article about Tracy Murphy's cat-food business ("How Do Cats Like Rabbits? Very Much, And Preferably Raw," Page One, July 30). As the third-most popular pet in the U.S., rabbits have unique personalities and are intelligent, gentle creatures. They suffer in agony, being bred and massacred on this factory farm, where Mrs. Murphy lines her pockets from her malevolent business.

What next? An article about how feral kittens are ground up to feed pampered pooches? Or perhaps you'd like to turn my dogs into Labrador lasagna and Rottweiler ratatouille as they do in Korea? I hope your newspaper will focus on publishing articles about people who run compassionate businesses, not horrific rabbit mills.

We look forward to hearing from you
