Pets hold a special place in your life, offering you unwavering companionship and loyalty. At the time of their demise, it is natural that you would want to honor their memory in the best way possible. Over the course of the article, we shall shed light on the various facets of pet urns for cats.

Cat Urns - Essential Features To Opt For

Today, there exists a wide variety of pet cat urns in the market, which may make it confusing, especially when you are grieving. To simplify your decision-making process, here are some essential features to look for in cat pet urns:

  • Make sure that the pet cat urn you choose has the ability to keep the contents of the urn airtight and waterproof to avoid moisture from entering.
  • If, for some reason, you cannot arrange for a rubber seal, make sure the urn is sealed with glue.
  • Based on where you plan to place the urn, choose the material accordingly. Marble is the most durable material if you plan to place your pet cat urn outside. If you plan to place your pet cat urns inside, you can use any material of your choice.
  • Keeping in mind the $100 - $200 cremation fee, set a budget for your pet cat urn.

Types Of Cat Urns

Listed below are some of the most popular and affordable pet urns for cats:

  • Egyptian Bastet: Having Bastet, the Egyptian Cat Goddess engraved on your pet cat’s urn can offer protection to your beloved pet cat in the afterlife. Or even the depictions of Horus (the Falcon God) or Isis (the God of Healing) will offer your pet cat a safe journey to the afterlife. Egyptian-themed urns are popular owing to their symbolism.
  • Custom 3D Portrait: Another great option for a pet cat urn is a hand-sculpted and meticulously painted portrait of your cat. Sculpted on a ceramic urn, this urn will come equipped with an ergonomic lid and a rubber seal.
  • Hand-Carved Wood: If you opt for a hand-carved wooden urn, you will receive a small wooden urn with an engraved plaque attached to it. You can use this plaque to engrave your pet cat’s name or important dates.
  • Keepsake: Made using soft clay, these urns are kiln-dried and glazed using wood ash. Owing to the end-product translucent with subtle contrasts, a keepsake will remind you of glacial melt.
  • Cat Resin: For certain breeds of cats with long hair (such as Siberian, Ragamuffin, Persian, Maine Coon, and Balinese cats, to name a few), cat resin urns will make for a fitting and stylish tribute.
  • Urn Necklace: Usually made from 316L stainless steel, urn necklaces will not be susceptible to wear and tear of daily use. The front bears a silhouette of a cat, while the back can be used to engrave a name or dates.
  • Bronze Urn: Bronze urns are the largest pet cat urns in the market, supporting as much as 225 cubic inches. Often the most expensive because of their stately features, bronze urns do not allow you the option to engrave anything on the cast.
  • Marble Urn: Measuring just 14 cubic inches, marble urns are advantageous owing to their durability, thus making it perfect to keep outside.
  • Bio-Degradable Urn: With a focus on ensuring that your pet cat’s spirit continues living on in the form of a tree, bio-degradable urns have gained immense popularity.

Cost Of Cat Urns

Pet urns for cats start at $20 and extend to a few hundred dollars. If you opt for urns at the lower end of the cost spectrum, you can choose between bio-degradable urns, polymer urns, and cheap wooden urns. On the other hand, if you have the budget to pay for a more expensive urn, you can benefit from artisan painting, intricate woodwork, and other such personalization options.
