08:25 pm: In Which I Attempt To Dispose of A Dead Cat….

I will not give you the whole sordid story. I will merely say that in the future, I would like to arrange with all my pets that they pass on during warm weather when the earth is not frozen. Burying your dear pet is so much nicer than keeping it on your porch in a bag for five days and then arriving at the animal shelter to find out that they are closed Mondays.

On the other hand, my warmest thanks to the nameless shelter volunteer who convinced the shelter to open the door and help me.

Thanks. She was a wonderful good kitty. She was almost 15 years old.

Luckily, I don't think of her body as having much to do with her once she's left it...or the above story would have been a whole lot more upsetting to me. As it was, I could appreciate the humor, despite my discomfort.

Best way to think of it, really.
BTW, I am personally not a fan of open casket funerals.

Neither am I. Though I don't think I've ever actually seen a real dead body (of a person.)

Sady, our friend who died at the turn of the year had one. The body looks nothing like the person, and I'm afraid it was very hard on some children in attendance who knew him well in life.

That is a shame. I do not quite understand why anyone would do that.

That's such terrible news. I'm so sorry for your loss and the horrible events that proceeded it. *hugs*

When I had to say goodbye to a cat I had since childhood a few years ago, I was crushed. But now we have two great kitties (the bf said we needed two to fill the void our former one left).

Hoping for better days for you. :)

That makes a sad situation harder.
