The practice of honoring cats when they pass on goes far back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. Cats, often seen as guardians in the afterlife, are mummified along with their departed masters and are placed in urns for cats. These urns are then placed in a sacred spot in their masters’ tomb, serving as companions to them in the afterlife as much as they had when they were still alive.
Today, this practice of honoring feline friends who have passed on continues. More and more cat owners are opting to have their departed cats cremated and their ashes stored in cremation urns for cats. Thus, if you are the owner of a cat who has passed on and you want to show how much you cherish your cat, you are in good company when you choose to have your pet cremated.
If you decide to buy an cat memorial, you would not have problems with finding the perfect urn. There are so many custom choices available for you out there. You just need to take your time to shop for the urn that you think is most suitable for your pet.
Urns for cats are made from many different materials – wood, ceramic, marble, metal, stone, and even plastic and cloth. They also come in many different styles, ranging from the most simple to the most ornate.
When you decide on which urn to buy, it will help you to consider where you will put the urn in the long run. If it is going to be placed inside the house, you may want an urn that fits the décor of your house. You will also not need something that is specifically for enduring the elements, like rain, wind, etc. So if the urn is to be put in a spot outdoors, like in your garden, you would need an urn that can withstand last.
Considering Your Budget
There are so many wonderful pet urns available today. And many are not expensive at all. Consider this brass urn. You can have your pet’s name and dates of living engraved on the urn for under $50. On the other hand you can purchase this Cobalt Amphora Pet Urn for $250.
