Lucy passed away.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 


I went to my mother's house on Friday.

I came back Sunday.

This happened Saturday // Sunday morning.

Lucy lives in the garage. I should have never kept her. She could be alive in another home had I taken her to a shelter. But I didn't, and now she's gone.

She was always really good about keeping away from the car. Not this time. Lucy was run over by my grandma's car on Saturday, and wasn't found until Sunday morning. It's not my grandma's fault. She's 80 years old.

We have a problem though. Because it's December, the ground is frozen. So we can't bury her right away. I will NOT throw her body away. Is there a such thing as a pet crematory? Or would she be fine in the cold garage where animals can't touch her, until the ground thaws?

I also feel bad because I haven't cried. It's no one's fault, and maybe she's better off. I hope it wasn't painful.

I am sorry about what happened to your cat. Any crematoria will usually also do animals. I know the vet that I go to uses a local funeral home when someone wants them to take care of it for them. You could call a local vet and find out who they use. I wouldn't leave her in the garage even though it is cold now.

I'm so sorry about the unexpected death of your little cat.

I don't know about where you live, but here in L.A. where it's against the law to bury a cat or to throw the body in the garbage, vets will take care of having them cremated for us. I have had to pay $10 on occasion though.

Good luck and I am sending my sympathies for you and your family.

Im so sorry of the loss of your kitty, Lucy! This could have happened anywhere! Anyone could have done it on accident so dont blame yourself for keeping her in the garage! (although its not an ideal place for kitty)
I almost rolled my car with my husband in it one day to miss one. Thats as far as Ill go with the story though!

Sorry for your loss!

RIP LUCY

I send love and hugs.

This happened a few years ago with someone I knew. He built a fire on the ground til it had thawed enoguh to bury the animal.


My prayers are with you.

R.I.P. Lucy.

FYI, My vet actually has their own crematorium inside and animals can be cremated individually or as a group.
