Cuddly Pet Memorials
What do you think of the new craze sweeping the pet world – soft and cuddly pet urns?
With up to 70% of all pets being cremated many people are looking for better ways of interring their beloved pet. After all, having your pet in cold hard metal monument seems a little removed.
Patricia Moore lost Samatha the dog and decided to recreate the way we view pet urns.
No longer are they cold, hard, and often ugly urns. Now they are cute, soft and practical.
The idea proved so popular with Patricia’s friends that they managed to persuade her to put her “Soft-Hearted” pillows into production.And now you too have the option of keeping your pets close to your heart with the huggable urns.
Sleeping with your pets ashes has taken off with the “Soft-Hearted” brand of pillow. The pillows are made from soft microfibre which are guaranteed to keep the ashes locked safely inside.
The pillows are able to accommodate the ashes of a pet of up to 150 pounds. However, with larger animals some pet-lovers opt to just keep a portion of the pets remains in the pillow in order to minimize the Soft-Hearted pillow’s weight.
You can expect the pillow to feel soft, although it will have a firm “heart” that you may or may not feel depending on the size of your pet. The pillow itself is about 4 inches thick and 14 inches square.
So what do you think of the cuddly pet urns?
Are you in favour of keeping your pet much closer to your heart after it passes, or do you think this is just another crazy fad (one that the majority of pet lovers seem to be opting for) ?
