    Default 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.

    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.
