Since I have adopted mostly seniors I was burying them in the garden until I realized I had 8 buried and it was becoming a regular gravesite so I started cremating them and scattering the ashes. I take the name tag and glue it to a rock and place the rock where the ashes were scattered (usually a very small area). Bubbe will be buried in the urn and the tag will be glued to a rock in the garden somewhere. I don't want the urn in the house (for no particular reason). He LOVED looking out the screened porch (as do most of the cats) so a nice place near the porch will be selected and a nice rock to bear his tag will be placed close by.

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

There is no right or wrong way, to honor a beloved pet, so whatever gives you, the most peace of mind, and heart, is the right way...

An everyday family name; A particular name;
And the name but the Cat Himself Knows, and will never confess." T.S. Eliot

Oh no Marcia! I'm just seeing this now and can't believe it.

No words - just sending lots of hugs and good thoughts, plus plenty of loving for Polly.
