Pets really do become a huge part of your family. However, time passes by so quickly, and they leave us too soon. Some dogs, cats, and other pets live beyond their expected years, but even then, their lives are shorter than we would like and we end up heartbroken. It can be tough to mend the hole left by your beloved pet, but there are things you can do to remember them forever. Below, you’ll find some advice:
- Have A Cuddly Toy Made To Look Like Them
If you miss snuggling up to your pet, consider having a cuddly toy made to look like them. This isn’t just any old cuddly toy – there are places out there that will make special toys to look just like a picture of your pet that you send over to them. You may have one handmade and crocheted, or made like a really teddy bear in the image of your pet. Have a look and see what you can find.
- Print Their Picture On A Cushion
Show off your pet on your bed or sofa by having their picture printed on a cushion. Make them part of your decor.
- Make A Memory Box
A memory box is a great way to remember all of the good times with your pet and look back on them and smile. Put pictures in there, little tokens and mementos, and well as written memories that you don’t want to forget. Ask people to contribute to the box so that you have lots of memories and things to smil
- Display Their Picture Around The Home
Print out your favorite pictures and display them around the home. See if you can buy a nice frame and put it on the wall or your desk.
- Buy A Nice Urn
You could look at cremation urns for cats by Memorials.com to display and feel close to them. Perhaps you could put this somewhere with their other keepsakes so you have somewhere you feel like you are near them.
- Have Some Jewelry Made
Having jewelry made to commemorate your pet can ensure you are close to your lost pet at all times. It could be a simple engraved ring, bracelet, or necklace, or you could even have some jewelry made out of their ashes so they really are close to you.
- Create An Outdoor Memorial
An outdoor memorial could be a bench near their burial place so you can sit and remember all of the great times you had with them.
- Plant a Tree In Their Memory
Plant a tree in their memory and take good care of it. It’s good for the environment and it can be a part of their outdoor memorial.
