Large Cat Urns and Memorials

Losing a cat that has been a part of the family for years is hard to say the least.  Large cat urns are a fitting way to pay tribute to your beloved pet; you want to do something that is special, and demonstrates the love and respect you have for your cat.  You may choose to simply burying a cat in the backyard, but pet urns are no longer simple wood or metal boxes.  Large cat urns are available today in a wide array of designs and materials, so you can memorialize your cat in a way that best represents their unique personality and life. One exquisite example of the large cat urns available today is the Traditional Onyx Marbled Urn.  This urn is perfect for displaying on a shelf or anywhere you like; the swirled, colorful pattern consisting of burnt sienna, cream, soft green and black makes a beautiful addition to any room.  Since it is crafted of marble, it would also be suitable for outdoor use. When your pet was a kitten, you likely had no idea how big it would be as an adult cat.  Some kittens grow up to be of average size, while others grow up to be a magnificent and almost regal looking because of their large size.  If your pet was bigger than the average size cat, you may be in search of large cat urns that are capable of holding the ashes of your beloved pet.  The Came, Purred, Conquered Rock Cat Urn is a suitable urn if you prefer to place your memorial outdoors, perhaps in a rock or flower...

How To Explain Losing a Pet to Children

Explaining the death of a loved one or even the concept of dying to a child is one of the toughest things you will ever do.  When it comes to pet loss, children often perceive in their mind that a pet will be around for as long as the child is.  How can you comfort them, and explain in a way that they understand?  This may in fact be the first encounter with death of any kind for a child, so it should be handled in the right manner. There are many considerations; in dealing with losing a pet, children of different age groups should be handled differently.  Honesty is always the best policy; you never want to make the child believe that your family pet simply wandered off, or that they “went to sleep” and didn’t wake up.  If a child is 10 or 11 years old, they often already understand that every living thing dies at some point.  Children of different ages also perceive the death of a pet differently.  For example: A very young child, perhaps 3 or 4 years old, knows that the pet is a playmate.  When the pet dies, she will most likely miss it for a time, but may not experience much sadness or trauma like an older child would.  Children who are old enough to take care of feeding or walking a pet may experience guilt feelings.  In their mind, they may believe that they did something that caused the animal to become sick or die.  This is particularly true if the child ever had thoughts such as wishing they didn’t...

The Loss of a Pet Can Be Difficult

To many people, this is very similar to the feelings experienced in losing a human friend or family member. People may say unkind things such as “Get over it – it was just a pet!” This is very cold and indifferent, but that is how some people feel. Pet loss can be extremely devastating. Their unwavering love and affection is something you don’t get often in this life from humans. People often think you are silly if you mourn the passing of a friend, that they are somehow not as important as humans. The truth is, sometimes our pets treat us better than friends and family do – and they are loyal to a fault. This is why the loss of a pet can upset you every bit as much as the death of a friend. Feelings of sadness, despair and depression are natural for many people when a beloved pet dies. Often, remembering certain things can help you cope with losing a dog or cat. Think back about how your pet came to be with you, where you got him from. What were some of the activities that you enjoyed together? Did you play catch in the backyard, or go for walks every day? Think of some of the rough times in your life, or times that you were deliriously happy. How did your pet fit in the picture at those times? Sometimes, thinking back gives you positive feelings that enable you to cope better. Dealing with grief takes time. Gradually, you will start feeling better and realize that you still have the memories of the great times...
