dig hole

Help me please; my kitty died this morning and I want to bury her in my back yard; I am unable to dig deep enough due to frost? I guess? How can I do this as soon as possible? thank you

Sorry about your loss. :(

Have had to do a similar chore in the past that required using a pick axe to get past the frost line and then a shovel after that. Its not easy digging that's for sure. I have seen instances where a small charcoal fire was started and covered with a metal trash can to melt the frost line for digging. I don't have personal experience with that, but it may make it easier for you.

Re: dig hole

Sorry for your loss. You could ceremoniously encrypt the kitty in the freezer until such time that you can dig a sufficient grave for it. Other than that it's coming up with a way to defrost the ground enough to take care of it now. I like BP's recommendation, however hot water will probably do the trick as well.

Again, sorry for your loss.
