Aw, sorry about the little guy. Memories will be fond to visit you. I still think about my Button and Puff making all sorts of heck up on the Bridge for my only ever female Cuddles. They're all waiting now.
**It's illegal to bury animals here too but Button lies under the tree in my old backyard. All my pets have been buried in some illegal sptt. We've been doing it forever. My cat Dusti is buried next to a graveyard in a small community in NL. And a lot of our old mice and rats are buried in an old field where we can trek anytime we like
Trick is finding a good place and the right time when no tattle tales are about. Then it will remain yours and George's secret place. Bless.
