Pet Karma-The Wild Rabbit in my Closet

I was about 9 years old out playing in my backyard (right around Easter time) and I came across a wild baby rabbit.  I was home sick from school enjoying the April sun while my mother gardened.  I know now that keeping wild animals as pets is very wrong but at the time I did not.  I caught the little bunny and brought him into the house, into my closet specifically, with my mother's permission.  We must have bought rabbit food....I know I brought lettuce up to my closet to feed her.  The details escape my recollection. The rabbit was a pet for a few months.

We brought her down to the lake cottage and let her go free.  The cottage was surrounded by thickets and forest but this was an ill thought out release.  The Siamese cats were free and wild and the little rabbit (which was not very little anymore) was free and semi-tame.  After we set the rabbit free a few hours went by and we heard that awful heart wrenching scream of an injured rabbit.  We never saw direct evidence but I believe it was safe to assume that the cats murdered the rabbit.

I was a little girl, did not think ahead and was distressed over the outcome......so I would think it is a neutral Karma for me...those Siamese cats were just being cats....where is the Karmic debt?  Perhaps my parents!
