A decent burial by country folk

Pet cemeteries are a relatively new phenomenon in the world, if you overlook the ancient Egyptians’ habit of mummifying their deceased pets. While most Americans and Europeans choose not to bury their cats in pet cemeteries, there is a long tradition among rural folk of burying a departed cat or dog on the family property, perhaps first wrapping the body in a towel or blanket and then digging a fairly deep grave. People invest a great deal of time and emotion in their pets, so tossing the body along a roadside or (even worse) depositing it in the garbage hardly seems appropriate.
