What to do with your cats ashes. Welcome to My Pet’s Ashes. We are an award-winning pet advice website that has helped people cope with losing their pet for over 10 years. If you have just said goodbye to your cat or they are nearing the end of their life then we can help you to navigate this journey.
You may have been thinking about what you should do with the ashes for a little while or you vet might have just asked you. We have lots of helpful things that you can do to celebrate the life of your cat by doing something memorable with your cat’s ashes.
Coping with the loss of your cat
When you have to say goodbye to your cat it can be really tough. The unique bond you have created between yourselves is so special. You never owned them, no self-respecting cat is ever owned, but you lived together in harmony. Each snuggle on the sofa, each leg caress as you filled their food bowl, the purrs whilst you typed away at your keyboard. Every interaction strengthened your relationship with them. And that bond can never be broken. I have put together a 12 Step Pet Bereavement Guide with practical advice and tips for coping with the shock, the day-to-day loss and dealing with other people, vets included. You might find it helpful and you can find it here.
Scattering or burying your cat’s ashes.
If you choose cremation, see our advice about different types of pet cremation, the next step to think about is what to do with your cat’s ashes. Many people decide to scatter or bury all of their cat’s ashes somewhere that is special to their cat or where they can visit easily, in the garden say. A few things to consider if you decide to do this – what if I have to move house or change my mind? Scattering all of your cat’s ashes is a very final choice, it cannot be undone.
Keeping your cats ashes
You can decide to scatter/bury some of your cat’s ashes and keep some. It is totally up to you. Even keeping a couple of teaspoons will mean that if you decide to do something memorable later on you will be able to do that.
