A grave in the garden-much needed advice
Last night my beloved cat Baghera died in the night. He has been our family for 15 years and we want to keep him close. So I have decided to bury him under the old lilac bush, he liked it there. Now I find myself with practical questions and thought to seek advice here. The lilac is along the privacy fence with a flower bed around it. I plan to put a large rock over the grave. It's heavily shaded and nothing is growing there now. My question is, how deep do I need to dig to be sure of a safe grave? The lilac is unlikely to be disturbed even if we were to move hopefully. It is the best bush in the yard. Any advice is appreciated, I don't quite know what to do for him as I have never actually buried anything larger than a hamster myself.
