Vodka usually makes it a point to not eat animals that she has had as pets (Ginger, having only had a gerbil as a pet, does not share this problem). Thankfully, this policy has only ruled out cats, dogs, and rabbits from her personal menu.
To be fair, Vodka did not love her childhood bunnies – Kerrigan and Zayak (she was an obsessive figure skating fan in her youth) – nearly as much as she did her beloved cat and does her toy poodle. So if she had to break her own no-eating-pets rule for any of them, the rabbits had to be the ones to go.

Our bowls of pasta arrive, brimming with bright red tomato sauce and small chunks of rabbit meat. The pasta is al dente and shaped like miniature bowls, the perfect holders for the rabbit ragu. There is just one problem.
The dish has bones in it.
Not big bones. Not eating off of a chicken bone or a rib bone or any kind of bone that we understand.

Needless to say, we inform the waiter, of what we, apparently mistakenly, believe is a misstep.
And we are told, “Oh yes, that happens with gamey meat.”
Clearly, we don't have game.
