Unfortunately, I have to agree with this. This may sound ghoulish, and I truly don't mean to upset you by suggesting this: since it's only been 2 weeks, is there any way you could possibly re-bury your kitty? If her resting place was deeper, you might not worry about it so much. I'm only suggesting this because of a bad experience with my Mimi's grave. I guess I didn't dig deep enough, and when my Dad tilled the garden the next spring. ....... If you know just where your kitty is buried, you could dig right next to her, make the hole much deeper, and sort of manuever her so you wouldn't actually be taking her out of the ground.
That sounds so awful, and I'm so sorry for suggesting it, but it seems as if this is really weighing on your mind. I hope you can come up with a good solution. I'm so very sorry about your baby.

It's only been 8 days, i dont know if i could do it and i dont want to suggest it to mum or dad and upset them. The whole flower bed is hard and you cant go far down. Dad started digging in the backyard where it was soft but mum wanted her closer and not just in the yard where she could be walked over so we had no choice. I could not bear to look. Ill have to settle for something heavy or a marker

My mom's cat, Duchess, I buried in a flower bed area which is undernearth some weed fabric, I did dig it quite deep. Then I put dirt on top of that and planted some fall asters. That way there is always something to remind me of her. My mom had gotten a statue cat that looks almost like her and has that out there to mark the spot. That way no one will ever be able to disturb her.

Since she isn't deep in the ground, maybe you can use some weed plastic to place over her grave........ and then put some potting soil and some pretty flowers over top of the plastic.That way no one would walk over her and everyone would know not to dig there because of the flowers.Maybe a rose bush!

That is so sweet...what a nice idea

Awww, I would love to see a pic of your Belle
I'll see if I can figure out how to post one for you (I've only done that once before, so I'll have to see if I can do it again!) Unfortunately, most pics of her don't capture her amazing blue eyes.

I also like the tree idea - plant it near her final resting place and then it shouldn't be disturbed.
