Aireen Jellen Palao, who lost shy but sweet Claude, wanted to bury him where she lived. She wanted him close by—he was, af­ter all, a cer­ti­fied Me­owmy’s boy—but her home didn’t have a yard.

Un­fazed, she asked a friend for help. “[Claude] was buried in my close friend’s yard since we didn’t have a yard in our house,” Aireen said.

If you don’t want to lay your cats to rest in your back­yard, bury their fa­vorite bowl or toy in­stead. Bury­ing any­thing they cher­ished while they were alive gives you a chance to visit them in a con­ve­nient place any time of the day… es­pe­cially when you’re miss­ing them a lit­tle more than usual.
