Cat Urn Selection Tips

Moving on after losing a cat is incredibly difficult. You are accustomed to interacting with your cat on a daily basis, and now there are voids in all of their favorite spots. One way to keep the cat’s presence in your home despite this loss is to bring them home in a cat urn. You can create a new favorite spot for them to rest while you grieve and continue on with your life.

Cat urns for ashes are designed to hold the ashes of your cat after cremation. It may be easier to bury your cat, but then you have to leave them alone. You pass up the opportunity to bring them home with you and continue feeling their presence in your home. They will always have a presence in your heart, but it is much easier to grieve when you have a physical representation of your cat in your home.

If you like the idea of using cat urns for ashes, here are some selection tips to ensure you pick the urn that is best suited to your home and your cat’s personality:

1. Cats are more compact than most dogs and humans, but you still need to make sure your chosen cat urn has enough room to comfortably hold all of the ashes. You do not want it to be much larger than necessary, either. Take the weight of your cat at the time of cremation and find an urn with that number of cubic inches. This does not need to be exact, and it is always better to err on the side of too much room than not enough room.

2. Consider decorative cat urns for ashes. Look for urns that allow you to insert pictures of your cat along the sides, or light a candle at the top. These extra features allow you to create a memorial to your cat in your home, so they are never forgotten.

3. Take the time to craft the perfect message to be engraved on your cat urn. Many urns allow for the cat’s name and a short message to be displayed on one side of the urn. This is no different than selecting the message to be displayed on a headstone at a grave. Leave a special message that shows what your cat meant to you.

Cat urns can become an integral part of your grieving process. They allow you to celebrate the life of your cat while moving on to the rest of your own life. Select your urn with care, as it will be with you for many years to come.

This is some really good information about pet urn. My grandmother’s cat isn’t doing too well at the moment. I know that he would want to have you can get a decorative cat urn. That does seem like a good thing to be aware of when her cat does pass away.
