I have a question.
A friend has a very old cat which is now sick and will probably need 'putting down' very soon.
Her question is Does the vet take care of disposal of the body and does anyone know what they do with it?

The vet will dispose of the body Brownie.  It used to be $25 disposal fee ontop of the vet bill.    As far as I know the animals are bagged and taken by the council.   I do not know where but can only assume.     Perhaps your local vet could be more specific.       A sad time for your friend.

you can always collect the bag bury it in the back yard and pland a fruit or nut tree on it....

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body.

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...

WOW, What a Ride!"

Please note: IMHO and e&oe apply to all my posts.

I was talking to my daughter and she seemed to think the bags are picked up by the council but they do not go into landfill sites they go to a particular spot for this type of disposal.

I have had recent experiences with PTS beloved cats. My boy Sam was cremated and returned to me in a lovely wee Rimu Casket with a plaque with his name on it. My parents had the same for Jasmine their much loved cat too. That gives a litle more freedom of choice. Some people bury the wee casket, others - like me - keep the wee box.

My vet asked us about it but we had already decided to bury Smudge at home near Minnie. We now have six pets, other than goldfish buried in the gardens.

The best bet would be for your friend to ring the vet and ask. The vet's nurse will know all the options availible.

Sam is in the china cabinet where I can go and look at him if I need to. If I have a really really bad shift, it is Sam I need - even 2 years since he died.

Taj and Heidi (my first 2 Siamese Furbabies) died in the 1990's. I still have them here in their Rimu Caskets. I never could bring myself to take them to Hastings to bury in my parents garden.

Our pets are truly honest and uncomplicated. The love they give us is unconditional. We live in a sick world that is getting sicker. In spite of this - our pets remain the same.

I just hope we aren't going to shift house anytime soon. I am missing Minnie badly. Sally has been cuddlier than she has ever been but she just isn't a cuddly cat or much of a lap cat for that matter. Cry

I expect you always will Sweetpea.  They own a piece of our hearts.

Have you got a marker for their graves sweet?  Not something sad and depressing, but something that will lift your spirits and make you smile.  We have a rock painted by the kids for Maggie's site (our 'tiel), and am going to do the same for Gypsy's (my special rat), though she is under the weeping cherrry tree, so isn't so much in need of a marker as it is a lovely spot in it's own right.

Pixie and Mystic (the other rats) are 'over there somewhere' (waves hand in vague direction of cherry tree) - in a nice spot, but not prime real estate like Gypsy.  They are more to the back and near the fence.

How sad, I hate to read of pets dying even though I realise they can't live forever as much as we would want them to. I can't add any more to the answers already provided, so I'll just sit and have a wee snivel here.  Cry

I marked Minnie and Smudge's graves with a cat sized rock each and cyclamin, freesias, mondo grass and baby tears. Ginger has got a rose call Iced Ginger. The rabbits have spring bulbs and more mondo grass and Cheeky the cocateil got a kowhai that didn't survive so has a rather large succulant.
