How Deep Should You Bury a Cat?

If you decide to bury your deceased cat, make sure you bury him at least 3 feet deep. This prevents any scavengers from digging up the carcass.

Once you dig a 3-foot hole, wrap your cat in a sheet or towel before placing its body in a small cardboard box. Time is of the essence after an animal dies because decomposition quickly follows. Once you place the box in the hole, fill the hole with dirt. Place a large stone on top of the burial area to prevent any scavengers from digging. Decorate the cat's grave with flowers or some of the cat's favorite treats, such as catnip.
