Oh no! I'm so sorry. Are you going to bury him in your yard? How is your DD doing with this?

My landlord said we could bury him in the backyard and that's probably where he'll go, she's bringing me a shovel tomorrow. DD is out of town and doesn't seem to feel it. I just can't let town come by and throw him out like old nothing. It's paralyzing to not know what to do with him.

Oh Callisto - I am so sorry that happened. I am glad you are going to bury him and honor is memory. Poor kitty.

Sorry about your cat Callisto. However it's good to see you, no matter the reason.

Very sorry for your loss Calisto. I have a cat outside that I worry about. He is the father of my kittens and when I move houses, I shall see about bringing him into the new house - much to the absolute disgust of my cats that he used to beat up, I'm sure!

In the past, when I have found a dead cat in the street, I have taken it to the local vet and asked them to dispose of it. They have not charged me, being an established client. My cats and strays that I have fed though, I have always had cremated and now have an urn collection.

My thoughts are with you.

I picked him up off the side of the road, which is a really weird sensation, and I don't know what to do now. I've never had to deal with this. He was a pain when he was in the house but he was sweet whenever I went outside which was several times a day to say hi to him.
I've just read this...I am so sorry, I know how you must be feeling. We had 2 kitties...Bubble & Squeak, Bubble was blind & got mauled by a stray dog, but Squeak lived till she was 18...we still miss them.

oh callisto, I am so so sorry. I can't imagine having to bury your own pet, but if it has to be done I know your baby would want you there to say goodbye. If you need to vent I am always here. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
