A cat urn, encasing your beloved cat's remains, can be a wonderful way to honor and memorialize your departed pet. While some cat owners choose to bury their cat's remains, many cat owners prefer to have their cat's remains cremated. In these cases, a cat urn is used to hold the ashes of the cremated pet. There is wide variety of companies that produce cat urns, and an equally wide variety of options, from practical and simple to very ornate or unique. Choosing a cat urn is mainly a matter of your own taste and a reflection of your cat's personality.
If your cat's cremated remains are being buried in a pet cemetery or being interred privately, you may be more likely to keep your selection of cat urn limited to the simpler and more utilitarian variety. There may be some restrictions that the cemetery places on the size or shape of cat urn you can select. Check with the cemetery for details about whether there are companies they recommend, or if there may even be a particular company from whom you are required to order your cat urn. If you wish to bury your cat's ashes privately, be sure to check with your local municipality. Some places have strict laws regarding the burial of pets, even those cremated and interred in a cat urn.
A classic and simple choice of cat urn is some form of a plain wooden box with an engraved nameplate affixed to the front. A slightly more elaborate version of this may include a photograph or etching of the cat. Another popular choice of cat urn is a metal or pottery vase. Some cat owners opt for a cat urn made to resemble their cat, sometimes in a favorite pose such as curled up napping or leaping for a toy; these can often be either miniature or life-sized versions.
The size of your cat as well as your own personal preference will dictate the size cat urn you will need. Some cat owners may choose to have their cat memorialized with an urn that is a life-sized replica of the animal, while others opt for a smaller cat urn. As a general rule, each pound of the cat's weight should equal one cubic inch of the size of the cat urn. In other words, the cremated remains of a 9-pound cat will require a cat urn that is around 9 cubic inches in size. In most cases, the cremated remains will be returned to you in a plastic bag that is placed within another container, such as a simple box. Most cat urns have easily-removed access panels to place the bagged remains inside the urn.
With a variety of options available, your personal preference can guide you to the best cat urn to memorialize your pet. Whether simple or ornate, mantel-sized or as large as life, there is a cat urn appropriate for every beloved cat and the human companions they leave behind.
