My sons picked up Miss Chicken ashes today and I have made a little shrine for her in one of my bookcases.

That looks very nice. I'm so sorry for your loss.

That's beautiful. She was obviously very loved.

Lucky cat.

When she died, my family buried our cat in the garden. Now flowers grow over her place of rest, unmarked but unforgotten. Circle of life and all that.
I'm curious: What happens when you move? Disinter the cat? Leave it there for the new owners?

Re: Miss Chicken (the cat) is ill again.

Well, it's my parents' house: they have been living there for 25 years and they have no plan of moving. In any case, it was more than 10 years ago, and with no casket/box, I doubt there is much left now.

Re: Miss Chicken (the cat) is ill again.

We buried two dogs at our old house, and told the new owners exactly where we buried them. Both dogs had rose bushes planted over their burial sites, which the new owners promptly ripped out, along with the rest of the garden we spent years cultivating. If they come across Copper's or Rufus' remains that's entirely their own fault.

Both that house and our current house were built in the 1930s, so there's a chance that either or both gardens have previous owners' pets buried in the gardens as well. Our current garden has one of our cats buried in it (we've also buried four pet rats, but I doubt there's much of them left by now). At my parents' old house in Toronto, however, we weren't allowed to bury our dog. She had to be cremated.

Re: Miss Chicken (the cat) is ill again.

In our former home, where we lived for almost 30 years, we buried 3 dogs (Wookie, Barney and Punky) and one cat named Onslow - Miss Chicken's brother - who was killed when the dog next door broke down the fence and got into our yard. Miss Chicken and Onslow were 5 months old at the time and she managed to cimb a tree out of the dog's reach.

We also dug up the remains of a cat not long after moving into the house.

I still remember exactly were my very first cat is buried. Her name was Sam and she was a kitten when she died. I was 7 years old at the time and my Dad buried her at the side of the house and myself and my two sisters attended the funeral. We fashioned a cross out of two small planks of wood and painted her name on it. That cross stood for years.

Was Onslow named in honor of Hyacinthe's brother in law, Onslow, played by Geoffrey Hughes in 'Keeping Up Appearances'?

Re: Miss Chicken (the cat) is ill again.

Did you notice Orac Zen's changed location and signature? Another loved pet lost

Miss Kitten, that urn looks very pretty! I haven't seen anything like that yet here in Germany. But perhaps that's because I live in the country where everyone has a garden to bury their pets in.
Most of my former pet rats and hamsters are buried in my huge (15 gallon) flower pots on the terrace under sage, thyme, rosemary and clematis. One of my hamsters suffered a stroke while eating and still had his cheek pouches full. 2 years later, sunflowers, sesame and oats suddenly started to sprout
My last hamster got buried in my parents' garden between a rose bush and the rhubarb, next to three of our Alsatians. I expect some exotic grasses and strawberries to grow there soon.

In my family, we buried hamsters or buried them at sea, depending on their size.
