You don't have to be Stephen King to know pet cemeteries can be disturbing places. Don't blame the pets; blame those who honor their dearly departed animal friends with maudlin memorial markers and over-the-top tombstones.

 

Weird, Creepy & Disturbing Pet Cemetery Tombstones

Here Lies Skippy, Destroyer of Worlds
Looking like the cursed spawn of a toad and a baboon, this pet cemetery grave statue supposedly represents someone's beloved pet dog... named Skippy. I dunno, we've seen some Skippys in our time and none of them remotely resembled this, er, thing. Check out the punk rock studded harness and merciless thousand-yard stare – yeah, pretty sure whoever commissioned this tomb is sleeping a LOT better at night.

Hail Satan
Hey, we thought Muhammad Ali was The Greatest. Anyway, you'll find the tomb of “Satan” in Huntington Beach, California, a fact that won't surprise many residents. Another BING-worthy fact: the notorious devil-dog lived for thirteen years. Thirteen! (pet tombstone image via The Week – REUTERS, Lucy Nicholson)    

 

 

Sir Buster de Latte pet cemetery headstone

Latte & Lamented
Don't let the grandiose name and drippingly sweet subtext fool ya, "Sir Buster" was obviously a much-cherished pet who no doubt earned much respect from those fortunate enough to have known him. We'll drink a decaf to that! (pet tombstone image via Scott Moore)

Wonder No More
TIL... Oakleigh Pet Cemetery in Baltimore features this rather plain gravestone dedicated to BOBBY The Wonder Monkey. Who the what, you ask?? Well, it seems the primate in question was one half of a traveling entertainment act in the post-war era, the other partner being a Captain Shaw. (pet tombstone image via Baltimore Or Less)

BiBi Gone
The Paris Dog Cemetery opened in 1899 and to date around 40,000 pets of all kinds have been laid to rest there, often memorialized with elaborate and tasteful tombstones. This is not one of them. (pet tombstone image via I Prefer PARIS)

Spice of Afterlife
You'll find the grave of Cinnamon Hippo Shar Pei at the Los Angeles Pet Memorial Park in Calabasas, CA. Just follow your nose. (pet tombstone image via This Fairy Tale Life)

 

 

Ratilla pet cemetery headstone

Nice Mousie...
This simple yet evocative headstone from Presidio National Park near San Francisco offers no clue as to what type of pet was interned at this spot. Judging by the lovely scripted name "Ratilla", however, one might guess the dearly departed is an enormous rodent awakened from its prehistoric slumber by atomic testing.

Scum of the Earth
One would think only the most beloved and treasured pets get to spend eternity in London's Hyde Park pet cemetery but one would be wrong: even Scum rates his (or her) own marked grave and inscribed headstone, though information on the latter is rather lacking. Guess the name says it all. (pet tombstone image via TripAdvisor)

Dressed to Kill
Here lies Frosty, the world's best dressed cat. Disregarding the thought of a cat that walked erect and wore formal attire for the moment, how does a tombstone's color image look as good as new after over 70 years outdoors? (pet tombstone image via Lucent Moments)

It's Pronounced “Fook”
Ah sure it is, and an infamous Transylvanian doktor's name is pronounced “Fronkenstein”. Seriously, though, “Ah Fuk” is a popular name for pets belonging to persons of Chinese heritage: it means “L'il Fortune”. You'll find this tomb at the Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in New York. If you visit, try not to stub your toe on the tombstone but if you should do so at least you'll know just what to say. (pet tombstone image via Flickr - Supremecourtjester)
