Here at Urns For Angels, we understand that your cat is a valued member of the family, deserving of an honourable send off. We understand this may be a difficult time for you and we want to help you through the process by making some decisions easier for you. We hope we can help you find some closure and happiness by choosing a tribute that is fitting for your cat. In this article we will be suggesting some heartfelt ideas for what to do with your cat's ashes.
The right pet urn for you
If you are looking to keep your cat's ashes in a pet urn to keep within your home or garden, it is important that you find the right one for you. This may be one that blends well with your home décor or one that you think resonates with your beloved cat the most.
There are many skilled artisans all over the world coming up with new and creative designs for urns every day that the idea of keeping your pet's ashes in a simple wooden box doesn't have to be the norm anymore. Here at Urns For Angels, we have an array of pet urns for pet ashes available that come in all kinds of colours, shapes and materials.
For example, we have our Cat Cremation Urn for Pet's Ashes which has been created to resemble a generic cat shape so that it is suitable for every breed of cat. This is one of our ceramic urns that is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and it is available in 12 different colours to choose from.
Alternatively, you may wish to opt for a more generic pet urn which is the suitable size for pet ashes. For example, our Sapphire Pet Ashes Urn. This is one of our beautiful crystalline glaze urns which is completely unique in it's appearance as it can never truly be replicated due to the natural reactions that occur on the surface of the glaze during production.
You may not fancy keeping your cat in a pet urn in your home or garden and that's completely your decision. You may instead decide for a burial urn. There are two types of burial urns: land burial and water burial.
A land burial is where a biodegradable urn is used to store a loved one's ashes and then this urn is buried within the ground, usually at least a 3 foot deep hole. Over time, the natural materials of the urn will slowly biodegrade to release the ashes and allow them to become integrated into the environment.
One of our land burial urns for pets is our SandSphere Biodegradable Urn for Pets Ashes, available in small or large. The biodegradable urn is made from natural, organic materials, making it a great choice for land burial. As the ashes are released into the soil alongside plant nutrients that contain phosphorus and nitrogen, the burial urn revitalises the environment it's buried in.
The biodegradable urn will remain solid at home when it's in a dry environment, but as soon as it is buried or comes into contact with a moist environment, it will slowly begin dispersing the contents and natural minerals throughout, naturally melding with, and fertilising the environment.
An example of one of our pet urns for water burial is our Embark Biodegradable Water Urn for Pet Ashes which is made from soluble salt. This pet urn for ashes is hard and resistant in dry environments, but as soon as it is immersed in the water, it will begin to dissolve and the ashes will disperse.
It is a beautiful and symbolic way of saying goodbye to your pet and giving them a special final resting place. Your pet which you have shared so many fond memories with can embark on its final journey, as it becomes one with nature with this pet ashes urn.
Our memorial jewellery allows you to keep your cat close wherever you go, taking them on all of your journeys. This may be in the form of a necklace, ring, bracelet, keyring or even cufflinks.
We have a range of designs of jewellery available including self-fill ashes jewellery. For example, we have our Corded Ashes Bracelet which is made from high-quality woven cord using naval rope, originating from the nautical industry.
Our ashes bracelet is equipped with a 11mm ash container on the band made from 316 stainless-steel which can hold a small portion of your loved ones ashes. There is also a clasp closure which keeps the memorial bracelet secure on your wrist. The bracelet is available in 7 different colours.
Scattering ashes has the ability to be an extremely sentimental and meaningful experience for you, your family and your cat's memory. You have the opportunity to turn the scattering of ashes act into a ceremony where your family may gather to celebrate the memories you cherish with your beloved cat.
