I've had all my pets cremated and they are in urns or other lovely containers in a china chest in my bedroom. I was there when all were put to sleep except for one ferret. I regret that I wasn't there for him but I also think it depends on how 'out of it' the pet is when it's done. I cry at the thought of all this and reading these posts. I personally don't like burrying animals or ashes because if I move I don't like leaving them behind.
