Dealing with the death of a beloved friend like your pet is a difficult experience – not only did you lose someone you love, you also have to make critical decisions while still under a lot of emotional and mental distress. It is never easy for anyone who cherishes their pet dearly. To make things easier for you even just a little bit, here are three important factors that should be considered when you choose a suitable urn to cherish the memory of your pet:
- Have you thought about where you will keep the pet urn? Make sure you choose a place where it will be safe from getting knocked over. Select a room and a place where everyone in the house can honor your pet’s memory.
- Feel free to contact us if you need help deciding what size and dimension of urn will accommodate the ashes (cremains) of your pet. This will help you decide on the size and shape of the pet urn you need.
- If you plan on burying your pet in the future, you will want to choose a biodegradable material for the urn. Ceramic urns are one of the best options when it comes to biodegradable urns; it gives you the freedom and flexibility to relocate the cremains of your pet in case you change your mind. An unglazed ceramic pet urn that has been baked provides a biodegradable option for your beloved pet. While the urn is more fragile because it has not been kiln fired, it will biodegrade more quickly when buried in soil and dissolve when placed in water. Please let us know if you would like a baked, unglazed ceramic pet urn as opposed to our kiln fired urns.
Keeping these three factors in mind, you can better select a fitting pet urn to store the ashes of your pet.
