I don't get this, but maybe because I'm closer to a lot of farmers than most. Pigs make great pets too, and they're quite intelligent. No complaints about eating those?
Rabbits are Pets
Rabbits are dinner

My Origin friends list is full but hit me up by PM if you want to build a city with me.
Pet rabbits are adorable.
Rabbit meat however is a bit bland.
"What do you seek within the mountain?"
Chicken and fish I don't have any issues eating, and I'm a selfish ass who couldn't give up steak if her life depended on it, so I eat beef too :P
I chalk it up to social norms/bias regarding an animal's appearance. If pigs were smaller, cuter and fluffier, I doubt they would be eaten as much in the US as they are currently, and would likely be considered cherished family pets.
I have neither had a rabbit as a pet nor ate any. So I see them as both sort of... xD
Don't like rabbit myself, but Im sure people enjoy it. I'll enjoy having rabbits as a pet instead, well my sisters will...:P
So voted both.
One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
Btw, have you ever wondered why in cartoons, films, stories rabbits are always described as being clever? While cat's are kind of dumbish?

I don't eat rabbits on purpose. If I'm being served, ok, but I won't order it specifically.
That being said, I don't really care what their purpose is.
I say it's a pet until it piddles in my spats. After that, lunch.
But seriously, I've known a few people that have pet rabbits. And all I could do was look at those cute big eyes little innocent creatures and think "That's a waste of some good meat."
I always got a chuckle out of thinking of someones pet as a possible dinner. It makes me appreciate certain cultures ability to eat dog.
In the end, dinner is in the eye of the menu-holder.

I had rabbit in a little town in Germany called Bacharach. It was delicious. Home cooked in a savory gravy. Oh . . . if only I could go back and eat it again.
