Small Wooden Pet Urn: The Wistman
This small wooden pet urn is designed to hold a set of small pet ashes, say a terrier, or a cat, or you may just want to keep a small amount of a larger pet dog’s ashes at home whilst scattering the remainder on a favourite walk or spot in the garden.
You can choose to have a plaque with your own personal message engraved upon it. There is a traditional brass plaque or a more contemporary stainless steel one. We can affix this either on the lid or inside the lid if you prefer the urn to be discreet.

Keeping the ashes
Many people keep their beloved pets ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the home. Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. But only you will know how you feel with the loss of your beloved pet and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something else with the ashes. Until then these urns can keep the ashes safely at home without you having to explain your reasons to anyone, if someone admires the urn it is up to you whether you tell them or not.
