Rosanne, I would have all my animals cremated but that would put us in the poor house. Boo died of renal failure (kidneys) about 15 years ago. He was a beautiful tuxedo cat and was only 11 yrs. old. I have a picture of me holding him in my profile album. He was my all time best buddy of all.
I'm so sorry you lost your little buddy too but he'll stay with you.
