boopingsnoot tells us more.
So, the second half of the story: Cousin got the bunny away from the cats before it was completely dead, and when I couldn’t fix her “new pet” she wanted to sit and watch it die. And take it to another relative’s house and bury it in *their* yard. Took a while to convince her to leave it in a “safe place” (bushes where my cats like to hang out, so they could finish the job). Hey, saves me money on cat food.

Your cousin has probably seen worse. There are all sorts of things on nature documentaries. And what kind of 12-year-old hasn't tried to watch a horror movie by that age?
Not to mention, the distinct differences between wild animals hunting for food and domestic animals hunting for sport. Housecats play with their prey - not food because they don’t usually have any intention of eating their prey. Watching a lioness take down a gazelle is nothing like watching a housecat slowly kill a mouse or bird.
This is an FML? Be happy you have cats that are actually motivated to hunt. That kid has been too sheltered if a baby bunny being killed is too violent for them.
