On friday morning we were treated to a very special gift by our red cat. Normally the and his buddy bring home mice, voles or an occasional bird, but not on friday.....
He dragged home one complete young rabbit! Don't know how he did it, but he dragged the animal through the catdoor into the hall. He barely fits through there himself! It looked like he had bitten through the animals throat and suffocated it, since there was the only wound I could find. And, like with the jay a while back, I took the opportunity to teach myself a lessen; how to slaughter a rabbit. Never did it before. Heck, never even witnessed it being done before!
All I had was a handfull of book- and internetwisdom. Time to get a bit of fieldpractice..... Unfortunately I could not get to it right away, due to some pressing "domestic tasks", so I hung the carcass in the (relatively) cool cellar untill the afternoon.
|the black one, Eddy, was with me the entire time........|

To them the spoils of "war"....
Ohh and a small word of advice; do not wear sandals on bare feet. It is a very uncomfortable feeling having blood dripping between your toes... Or at least I thought so.
