Did you just say wearable pet urns?
You heard, or should I say read, correctly. I recently wrote about pet urns, and I know what a tough topic it is to think about. For those of us who like to keep our pets with us, we don’t have much choice I’m afraid.
Wearable pet urns
I wanted to highlight another way to keep your pet close and that’s with wearable pet urns – necklaces with space for a small amount of your pets’ ashes.
Have you heard of this before? Not sure what to think? It may take a bit of time to wrap your head around this concept, so keep reading and see how you feel.
From ashes to diamonds
When I got back the cremains of my first cat I received a leaflet, offering me the chance to turn some of her ashes into a diamond. I was so stunned I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Not only did I have no idea it could be done, I was still grief stricken and thought it a bit cold. Anyway, after seeing that, a wearable pet urn didn’t surprise me. In fact, I can understand the appeal.
A lovely keepsake
When my cat Calypso died, I was beyond devastated. I couldn’t go to work for three days, I just stayed in bed and cried. The only thing that got me up was a trip we had booked, that I had to go on. When we got to our destination, everywhere I turned I saw the name Calypso, and it’s not a common name or word is it?
Because I didn’t know what to do with my grief, I thought I would engrave her name on a heart charm I had found. The mere thought of it was a comfort, and surprisingly (or not!) wearing it made me feel better, and I continued to wear it for quite some time. That’s why I can see how keeping a small amount of ashes with you can bring you comfort, and if it helps then by all means.
Enough talk, it’s time for show
