Heya guys...well...ma pet "passed" away (big suprise...). Natural causes. I normally bury mine in the backyard.

Just curious....what do you all do with yours?

My creepiest story was this....my old dog (had a dream about it first...) and then in real life...died. I buried it out in a field. One day...I heard the rustling of his dog collar in my room. I looked up and saw nothing. I got up and walked around and found fresh dog fur on my carpet. Just from the interest.....I went to the burial site where he was laid to rest. All over the top of the grave was more dog fur (looked shedded), but the grave was untouched.

Same color of fur mine had.

How's that for creepy?

I posted this earlier in another thread, and thought it might apply here as well.

I hate animals, and frankly I think they're only fit for eating and wearing. Oh, what's that? Nobody asked me, you say? Well I'll be damned.

So yeah, skin them out for fur (great for keeping warm in the harsh winters). And eat the meat. Oh, what's that? Nobody asked me, you say? Well I'll be damned.

[edit] Sorry to hear about the loss of your pet.

Well, we've had a few pets die over the years, just a couple of them since we had kids.

- Our beloved cat, bought the same year as the most difficult of our miscarriages, we had cremated and spent the money for a 'pet cemetary' plot.

- Fish ... we flushed.

- Our older son had a 'Silkworm City', and two of the worms died when trying to start cocoons, and a third died in cocoon. We had to bury those.

I threw my hamsters away in a shoebox. I know, It's horrible.


As for your dog fur incident........

I think you've been watching too much Beyond Belief. ;)

well, if you ever come across an evil lookin goat carcass, they look hella cool as backdrop in a satanic sex ritual, along with circle of red candles.....

*I am not speaking from experience* well, sorta not :p

re - animal burial ...

depends what animal it is...
*I had a pet cockatoo(aussie parrot!), when it died, we buried it in the backyard where its cage used to be and planted a rose on it :) R.I.P 'chicky' :D

I'd probably do the same for a cat. I love cats :D MEOW !

I only had to bury one bird and flushed three fish. That´s about it.

As for experiences: none.

The dog fur thing was probably another dog sniffing around the grave. As for my pets. I just flush fish, or ask the vet about what to do with the cat.

Not that I've ever tried it... <.<

Oh yeah, I've never had any animals, but cats can be cool :)

I would have burned them after I had drained them of all their blood... mmm, nothing refreshes as fresh goat blood :)

Burial in the backyard, side by side.

Y'know its illegal to do that? Stupid laws.

We have, like, five dead cats in our backyard. I believe it's not illegal around here. I wonder what Archeologists will think when they come sniffing in our fossilized backyard in thousand years...

I've had my dog Oscar for 8 years now and if he died, it would only seem right to bury him. He's always been apart of the family, and I would treat him like a family member.

I sold my dead cats body to the local Chinese restaraunt...no questions asked.

<_<


>_>


Okay so I was lying, I have no idea what we did with his body, but we didn't bury it in our yard anywhere, I think since we put him down we had the Vets take care of it.

The only pets I've had (up until age 11 when I got tired of pets all together) are mice, and when they died I used to put them in old Altoids tins I collected, cover them in cotton, and bury them next to a tree. I later learned to put a rock on top of the grave, because my first mouse was dug up and eaten by a cat :barf:

I even did a funeral service when I was younger :D

I had a fish for like 3 years, it had some gold fish problem were the air bladder or something go stuck full, so it was always at the top of the tank, and we feed it special food that nearly killed it, so we put it in a wet paper towel and put it in the freezer. And we buired it in the side yard in a little jewelry box.
My sisters first hamster got buried in a little card board box, the second one got a tumor and started loosing hair, and we set him free in a near-by orchard.

PS, this is the internet and not only does not everyone in here know your life story, we aren't going to cater our threads to be as gentle as possible. :dozey:

Yes, you are the only person in the world to ever experience something that terrible. :indif:


Edit - For the record, yes that is a sad story, and I am truly sorry you had to experience that.

Well, we did have a cat die when we were living out of town, and all we did was bring it to the back of our land and bury it.

I bury my pets. I have a pet cemetery. There's a dog (Ben, impaled on my rod iron fence:( ) a parrot named George (he was cool), a turtle named Etnyer, a few hamsters, and a possum my dad killed one night cause it was in my grandma's house.
