Wanna know what happened with the girl...well she died as well because i threw her out my window...i really didnt love her, she only had one day living with me.
  • I don't remember what my parents did with the pets when we were kids. As for now, haven't had a pet die yet but I don't think I want to bury them in the yard. Just too sad to go by the spot where they lay every day and know that they are there. Would probably find a pet cemetery or have it cremated.
  • throw it in the garbage.
  • When my big male cat had to be put to sleep, I had him cremated, then later scattered his ashes in this little patch of woods near my house. He had escaped once, and spent a week on 'vacation' in those woods. It soothed me to think his spirit might still be romping and playing there, eating pine needles like he liked to do. :)
  • Ive cremated mine.

All of these animals were born with us there and actually had to help our momma cat, Pepper deliver brownie. He was stuck in her and a vet told us to help her. Very sad!

We built a pire, about two truck loads of wood, about 15 feet high, in the middle of the back pasture, and burned the body 'till there was nothing left but ash.

  • You know. I have read some of these answers and think they are full of crap. Some people live in cities. Where the F are you gonna bury it! Even living in the country you'd be worried about some critter diggin' it up. Do as you please but for me it would be down to the local SPCA crematorium. And I'm talking about dogs, cats and horses. Not hamsters.
  • I give everything back to the Earth from where it came ... As is with food and vegie waste, I compost back to the soil ... Do humans really imagine that other life species have not a spirit? ... Something which has given me so much pleasure from unconditional love and happiness deserves the same if not more respect in death as ones enemies would get ... I bury my pets. Peace.
