Comment on Coping with pet loss guilt by Melanie.
My Boyfriend and I buried my Cat of 15 years out in the Country by his house(near a red shed). He was put down @ my home because of a terminal illness.I did everything I could to help him.He had the best medical care possible.The day before his time had come I had told my friend who is like a Mother to me that I wanted my Cat cremated so his ashes could be with me and later the urn would be buried with me.On the day of my Cat being euthanized I was in shock.The DVM my Boyfriend all helped to administer his medications for his permanent loss of life.Everything happened so fast yesterday that I didn’t even have time to think?! I was sad and crying holding my poor cat as the Dr. administered his three shots.Today my Boyfriend and I got into a disagreement about me the Cat’s owner letting him know what I wanted in the first place.He said I will not dig him up again?! It isn’t right!! I said to him his body is just a shell. I believe when his breath left his body that his soul went to Heaven.My Son said to leave his Childhood car at my Boyfriend’s house. The problem is we break up frequently and then get back together.My concern is he won’t let my Son and I visit our Cat. The main reason is I want my Cat to be with me*his cremated ashes in a small urn.It is upsetting to me that he is buried in the ground in an open wooden box wrapped in a large soft towel.I’m worried about a Fox a Badger or a Dog digging my Cat up.My Boyfriend said I purposely dug his grave very deep so that won’t happen.I was there so I believe him but I still feel it’s a possibility?
