Re: NPR Diane Rehm today about end of life choices for our pets
- All of my kitties have been buried in our backyard, there are three and one was a neighborhood stray killed by a car outside of our house. We didnt want his body to be thrown in the trash like so much garbage so we gave him a name and a final resting place with our other boys.
Ironically he died the day before our dear Happy passed away. We dug two holes in two days, it was heartbreaking with every turn of the shovel.
But I am comforted that they are out there, I can see their memorial stones when I look out of the windows. Our boys were all buried with something that was special to them.
I also have several birds buried in the garden, some were pets, others I found dead. There is also a shrew buried who died behind my house.
I am always worried that something will happen in the winter when the ground is frozen, I have kept several pet birds who died in my freezer until the spring thaw and buried them then. I will not have my cats cremated, that is just my own personal preference. Note, I didnt say anything about those who choose that route.
