What exactly happens to animals when they die?
My snake died, and I would like to believe he is in heaven.
I have no idea. I've heard some say that animals have no souls. I find that hard to believe when Moxie is so much a part of mine. I plan on having her cremated and putting part of her ashes on a necklace when she dies.
Physically, the flesh of the animal decomposes and eventually "returns to the earth". There is no way of knowing if anything happens metaphysically. However, pet owners may feel a strong personal conviction that their pet remains present in some way, shape or form, due to their deep connection while still together physically.
Sure ... believe anything you like ... even if it makes no sense - that's what religion is all about!
Yes, Daffy, of course animals have souls. I love your idea of putting part of your cremated Moxie into a necklace when she dies, keeping her close to you. The following link expresses beautifully what will happen to her after she 'dies'.

I've sent this link to a couple other related questions, such as do animals go to heaven when they die, and what do you say to someone who has lost a beloved pet.
This piece addresses all these questions and I want to share the beauty, comfort, and encouragement it has to offer, whenever it is appropriate.
