How does it feel to lose one’s pet? For a pet owner who is very much attached to his departed pet, the loss could cause so much anxiety and grief to him. The feeling could be similar to losing a family member, a close friend, or a relative. Pets provide its owners with entertainment, fun, and with a companion to share wonderful moments.
With these things in mind, some pet owners believe that pets deserve a decent final resting place. Like human beings, the options of whether to bury the body of the deceased pet traditionally, or to have it cremated is faced by the pet owners.
Pet cremation?? Yes, indeed cremation can now be applied to pets as well. We may find it unbelievable but its true. Cremation is now being done to animals, wherein the remains of the pet would undergo the usual cremation process, with the ashes given to its owners in the end, to keep or preserve in their desired urn.
Cremation on pets, as that of humans, is an issue where there are contradicting views. Many individuals would frown on this practice, considering the cost of cremation, to think that they wont be using this to a human’s remains but to that of an animal’s. However, for pet owners who have the money to spend, the procedure would be worth it, since they will be able to keep the memories of moments spent with their pet longer. These pet owners would usually put the urn containing their pet’s ashes somewhere inside the house where it can be easily seen. This would remind them of how their pets would greet them every time they arrive from work, and bid them goodbye when they leave home.
Pet cremation has slowly become popular in some countries, and, though some would find it quite “extravagant” for pet owners to engage in it, others find it worthy of its cause, believing that the money spent to pay for the cremation process is too small a price to pay for the memories spent with their beloved pets.
Whether we find it suitable or not to have our pets cremated, what is important is, we shall have our pets delivered to its final resting place with dignity, and not just leave them anywhere to rot. With this we can be assured that our departed pets are happy and contented where they may be, and for this, we, the pet owners, will find satisfaction as well.
