Pwescorr

I was shocked by the ritual at first, but once a feline told me the story behind it, it was quite the sombre but heartwarming rite to be invited to. I have to say, I never thought about eating my friend, but after she died on a hunt i needed to get her corpse to her home village. There I stayed and mourned the loss with her family. This was the moment i was invited to join the pwescorr. I already mentioned my first impression but now that i was part of it, i still feel as if her spirit never left me and supports me on my journey.
  Whenever a feline dies his body is stored in a building specifically made for the dead. This is usually a cold place, if not frozen by water signum so that the corpses wont decompose before the end of the month.   At the end of each month, all felines gather at the uppermost Sowa to mourn their loss together and say their last goodbyes to the dead.   After everyone bid their farewells the corpses get sliced up and a big fire is made. Every part of the body of the deceased is grillend and handed out to every attendant.   What might seem strange to other cultures is a huge festivity for the felines, for the departed wouldn't want to end on a sad note. The thought behind this all is, that every living being is connected with each other and while most of the soul returns to the elder ones, the consumption of the flesh causes some of the deceased to live on in everyone.

Components and tools

A huge fireplace is needed as well as utensils to cut the body of the dead.

Participants

Every feline of the village participates, normally outsiders are asked to leave for that time.

Whoop, Necro-cannibalism. Is there any superstition attached to a corpse not getting this treatment? What kinda building is it? :)

Good ol' necrocannibalism. Could potentially use more detail on the mourning ritual - are there special ceremonial utensils and particular rituals, or is it more utilitarian? Is prion disease a risk?

Hmm. Some questions that pop up in my mind are as follows. Is there any special positions in the ritual? Is it an honor to be the cook? What do they do with the bones? Do they have any traditional drink to go with it? Outside of eating the deceased how do they celebrate? Like do they dance, or sing, or something else?   It is a very interesting idea. It could use a bit of puncuation help here and there but is otherwise well written. Good job.

Oh forgot one thing. A name attached to the quote would be nice as well.
