Help with pet burial

Local Conversations in Streatham Park

Can anyone come to help dig a hole to help bury our cat today? We had to put him to sleep last night and want to bury him safely in the garden but need help with digging a deep enough hole. Hope someone can help. Thank you.

It is not necessary to dig too deep a hole as long as you put something over the place so foxes don't dig it up. I used a lot of bricks and after about 4 weeks no disturbance I'm glad to say.

Elizabeth and Robin - thank you for your messages. We put stone slabs all around him, soil over him and then another stone slab to keep his body safe. Until this experience, I had no idea that foxes would do such a thing - a terrible thought. We have ... [ more ]
