Informing a child that their pet has passed away is one of the hardest things you will have to do as a parent. As children do not understand the reasons why pets die, especially if the death of the pet was unexpected, the news can have a shattering effect on them emotionally. There are however, some ways in which you can soften the impact of the news of a pet bereavement, and one of those ways is to intern the pet’s ashes into a cremation urn.
Softening The Emotional Impact
Aside from the loss of a family member or close friend, losing a pet can be one of the most harrowing emotionally draining experiences that a child can face growing up. However, having a lasting memento of the pet around the home can go some way to softening the stress that comes with a sudden and unexpected loss. As soon as the pet has been cremated, you can choose to have the ashes put into a container that you can display in a variety of locations around the home. These days, pet cremation urns are growing more and more popular year on year, as more people strive to overcome the emotional turmoil of the loss of their pet.
The Choice of Pet Cremation Urns
When the time comes to select a pet cremation urn, then there are many factors to consider, and these include such things as the type of pet, and where you want to display the urn once you get it home.
If you are planning to display the urn outside, then you are going to need to select an urn that is made from a more durable material, one that can stand the change in the elements, after all it is going to have to withstand wind and rain and hot sunshine for example. Urns made from durable materials such as brass, bronze, stainless steel and marble are much better suited to being displayed outside.
Adding Personal Touches
Most pet owners say that their pet had a personality all their own, and so there are certain things you can add to the urn that would fit in with the pets personality. Such extras include; having a photograph of them incorporated into the design, or even having their paw print featured on the urn.
