first rabbit and burning bowls

one of the cats we're cat-sitting for a friend is just six months old. he had not been outside before coming here (had just gotten neutered and healed up enough to go outside when he got here), and has not been Inside since his arrival. he's been slowly picking up on the notion that the other cats seem to go away, kill things, and come back with full bellies. so he finally caught and killed a rabbit, with only a minimum of torture in between. he was very protective of it. here, see.

also, one lovely spring evening while jon roasted some wild boar over our fire pit, i started the slow and fascinating process of burning bowls out of chunks of wood using coals. i worked on it for about two and a half hours that evening, and will continue during future fires.
