What the hell is wrong with you people? You bury dogs, cats, ferrets, ect in the backyard. You put them in something metal and you bury them. Or you get them cremated. But, you don't get a headstone; people will think that you are tots cray cray.

Right, because there's certainly nothing stupid or crazy about storing all the dead people in one part of town.  That's definitely not religious medieval superstitious bullshiat, nor is it a complete waste of perfectly good land.

I'm no expert either, but would the dog even eat it? He's a chihuahua, not a labrador retriever. He might a picky eater, and ashes probably don't taste very good.

Actually, there are some pretty good reasons to do it that way. Before the Roman Catholic Church got started; the vast majority of people were cremated.

When they started saving bodies, because Jesus, there was an uptick in deaths related to disease. So they had to come up with a way to safely dispose of bodies, without burning them. That was the origin of the churchyard. Before then, graves were on the road into town and the graves were used by generations of the same family; they kept the ashes of family members in urns. It's very similar to the concept of the mausoleum.

/ I do agree that the practice is silly; I figure we'd be better off if we cremated everyone

I'm an atheist and I think when we die that's it. So there's really nothing about dead bodies and funeral bullshiat other than essentially taking advantage of the grieving loved ones in the instances of most of these biz.

But when one of my cats was hit by a car, and I held his still warm body...I certainly didn't want to bag him and trash him. We wrapped him in a towel, drove him to our vet and paid for single cremation where we got back the ashes. And this was not a cuddly kitten I should point out. He was an asshole cat. He really was. But we loved him, and it is very hard to separate how you feel for someone and their physical being, even when they are dead. Even when you have no belief that they are somehow still tied to that form or still exist in some meaningful way.

So I get it. And I don't hold it against anyone who in grief pays for headstones and such. I do hold it against the biz that is predatory on a person's grief, upselling lavish things that no one needs on the back of grief agony. fark those assholes.

Ever looked at the back of a dog food can an notice the words "ash content?"  Just saying.

actually what that test refers to is what would be left if you burned it.  Why this particular test means anything meaningful to the consumer is beyond me, but it does for some odd reason.  Hell, it don't even tell you what is in the ash.  It could be lead or it could be carbon from compressed fish bones.

The more, and hopefully obvious, amusing question is why a 33 year old is planning anything with her ashes and pets.  I hope she does not have children(pets are not children). Are we really sure this isn't a big joke?

What of the legal loop holes?  Pet cemeteries aren't exactly a "hallowed ground" and the land can be purchased and used just like other land.  Adding human remains could present some legal challenges.  Part of our high school, the track and stadium, was built on a pet cemetery.  It was used as such for at least 75 years prior by local farmers and families.  Lots of horses, cows, dogs and other farm animal skeletons were found when they built the track.  No human remains as far as I know, but they did find a mastodon tooth.

Burial is not for the dead, it's for the living. It makes no difference what you think happens after the body dies, or where it went--why do you think so many cultures have such elaborate mourning rituals despite such wildly different beliefs in heaven, hell, reincarnation, etc.? It's to provide a sense of separation and closure for the ones left behind. The idea that someone or something you loved and cared for is now just a hunk of meat to be tossed on a trash heap is, quite frankly, the mark of a sociopath. One marker of self-awareness in higher animals (chimpanzees, dolphins and elephants) is an ability to recognize their own dead as distinct from other dead, and treat them differently from creatures they killed or found dead.

As far as the idea of your pet caring whether you are interred with it or not, however, that's just plain ridiculous.

I plan to have my cat's ashes made into a synthetic diamond when he eventually dies. Less creepy to me than having a box of ashes around (also, more compact... I expect to be living in a fairly small apartment at that point, which is also why yard burial is out). More sensible and keeps him closer than burial in some pet cemetery somewhere.

I actually DO think my cat would want to stay with me *somehow*, if he understood the concept. He always wants to be close to me, he gets upset if he sees me mess with a suitcase, and when I come back from a weekend away he cuddles lots extra. The idea of being apart from me forever would break his fuzzy little heart. I suspect that's true for most dogs, and at least some cats (yes, my cat totally acts like a dog).

iheartscotch: Before the Roman Catholic Church got started; the vast majority of people were cremated.


This isn't totally correct.  We've (archaeologists) found ancient Etruscans buried in northern Italy and they pre-date the ancient Romans and the Catholic Church.  I helped excavate an ancient Roman cemetery that dated to Emperor Augustus.  There were many burials, including Libation burials.  Again, this was before Christianity became popular.   That being said, it is true that the ancient Romans also did cremation.  I once did a paper on burials vs cremation and my conclusion was that the Romans did not prefer one method over the other.   It really depended on your economic and social status.

High dietary ash content can lead to kidney stones, at least in cats, and owners of cats with kidney problems are advised to feed them a low-ash diet.

Eh, whatever makes people happy. My sister's ashes were scattered at her favorite wetland preserve (probably illegally but who cares). I'd like something similar. My dog, I don't like to think about her passing and hope she lives a very long time, but we'll probably take her remains to one of our favorite camping spots. To me that's more meaningful than a cemetery.

a diamond isn't a bad idea. I was going to have mine stuffed in some sort of heroic mouse killing pose so I can always cuddle him after he passes. That or the dumpster. I have not decided yet
