We have a designated "Pet Cemetery" in our backyard near a really cool vintage boat trailer.... Each animal is buried there and we find a rock to put on top of it. Only 2 animals have their initials carved onto the rocks, but the others we mostly remember who's buried where. I mean, some we've forgotten, but now they're part of the Earth and they are literally part of the grasses and wildflowers that grow there. It's really nice to be able to go to the yard and just look at and remember the memories you had.
The only animal who is buried in our house was my baby Fantail named Jellybean. He lived with my giant Comet for a week until we went on vacation. When we came back Jellybean was dead and stuck to the filter (no sign of aggression from the Comet) so we buried him in a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig potted plant we have near where the tank was. It's a palm tree and since the pot is so big we have room for several more fish...but hopefully we can worry about that in 25 years or so.
7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats
