    I need to make a fire that burns very hot but is safe and legal and doesn't involve a lot of chemicals. Also it would be ideal if there wasn't a lot of ashes left over. Any ideas? My pet chinchilla passed away and I cannot see burying her for a coyote snack, and slippers are out since I'd only get one... ( THAT is a JOKE don't go all PETA on me) I want to cremate her but I'm worried I can't get a hot enough burning fire to do the job properly. Please any ideas would help. Even jokes provided they're funny, but no nastiness please I've enough of that presently. Thank you.

    Did she sign a will demanding cremation?

    If you did the hole deep enough no smell will emanate to attract predators so just dig down about 3 feet or so then fill and compact the soil.

    Thanks for your kind words. I know logically she is gone, however, I can't bring myself to relegate her to a hole in the ground. (Nor shall I be for that matter.) The cycle of life thing is fine, until you have an emotional attachment to the recycle-ee, as it were. I 'm presently in a campground, in a resort, on a reservation to make it complicated. It's my gift. I lived in a city back east and services were provided. I want to do as I've always done. And quickly, before what I remember as a bright and lovable pet goes the way of all dead things. I'm a bit OCD (not helpful) and had her for nearly a decade my only child, lol. Staying by her side till she passed has already gained me some personal space I've wanted for quite some time. ⚠️��⚾️ And yes there was a last will and testament but I doubt it will stand up in court. Unless it's a 72 hr hold they're trying for against my indisputable rationale.

    A traditional Hindu funeral pyre just burns wood in open air. It takes about 6 hours. I would think you could burn up your chinchilla over the campfire in a couple of hours or so.

    People are buried so why can't she be given the same type of burial?

    First she's not people, secondly, I am but have no desire to take up extra real estate with the junk left after I'm gone, i e bones, boxes of wood, and grave markers. Unless it was in a composting pile and would provide some benefit. Or maybe the Body Farm. I did some research about temperatures and such and built a funeral pyre on the beach last night and sent my baby off to be particles we all get to breathe, that's reincarnation. Thanks for the information on funeral pyres btw your guesstimate proved accurate. Not much chinchilla mostly just fur. The method of building the fire was also important and effective. I think I will either build a parabolic mirror death ray or move to a town in Colorado where they do Viking style funeral pyres for human beings. Apparently the only town in the US where it's legal to do so. The whole process helped a bit with grieving and I learned a bunch of new things, can never go wrong there. ��

    I was glad as well. Truly. She was redistributed in style. As it were.
