      I got Twizzler’s remains yesterday – I had her privately cremated.  My vet said that the place they work with “All Paws Go To Heaven” (love that name), is very respectful to the animals and they did a good job – I’m glad that my clinic really checked them out because it’s as important that my pet get the same respect even in death.

      They put her remains in a beautiful cedar box with an engraved name plate on top.  They also included a nice letter, a certificate, the Rainbow Bridge Poem and a nice candle – it was in a pretty white bag with paw prints on it.

      Sad thing though is that I have about 6 of these boxes and I need to find an appropriate burial place one day.

      That sounds really nice, Sarita.
      Maybe you could find a lovely cabinet, like those smaller lacquered ones that are from China, and store all the boxes in it.

      Aw… Hugs. That is amazing that they take so much care with the beloved pets.

      This is the tragic thing about loving animals… we outlive them.

      I kept all my boxes for a few years until I was ready to “let go” of their cremains- I planted planted our dogs cremains under a lilac tree (one each) and one my my cats- Shadow and my bunny Penny under a rose bush.

      It took time for me to be ready to even be ready for that step- but eventually whatever feels right might just come to you!

      Oh, that sounds like such a caring way to handle the loss – a poem, candle, certificate added. Wow. That is nice. My vet started the tradition for me of tying a little bow around the piece of fur, and so I keep those in a separate little keepsake box.   I too, haven’t figured out what to do with the urns yet. I keep thinking once I feel I am at a definite permanent place of residence – I would do something similar to what Katnip has done. Just haven’t found the right spot, the right place yet. I’m sure it will be like what Katnip said, eventually something will feel right.

      I have heard of jewelry being made out of the ashes. I can’t remember the site exactly, I’d have to go searching.

      A local place here makes keepsake jewelry for people, they also have local hand made urns that are beautiful.

      wow, Sarita, that sounds like a wonderful place, to handle a beloved pet so respectfully and do so many thoughtful things for you in rememberance.

      It would be hard to decide what to do with the ashes. I’ve been thinking about what to do when I lose my very aged Katie (cat) and Floppie (dog) and need to look and see if we have a place like that down here in Waco. The cemetery where I have plots and my husband is buried is the most beautiful spot on earth, huge live oaks, squirrels, rabbits everywhere and I think I would scatter their ashes about our plots.

      Again, I’ve been thinking about you and am so sorry about Ms Twizzler

      Yeah, the sympathy card and fur with the bow totally floored me and my girlfriend when her bun passed. And the fact that the Dr. actually got teary eyed as we said our goodbyes was fantastic.

      As for myself, I never keep the ashes – I just turn the body over to be disposed of (which I’m told they still do respectfully). My bun is gone and I never believed in having a place where people would go to ‘visit’ the remains of someone.  IMO, they’re not there, they’re all around and there’s no reason to put one place above the others.

      I agree Mark, they aren’t here any longer and they do dispose of the ashes respectfully which is important to me too…I never really visit any of the remains of my pets really, I just have these sad reminder of boxes. I suppose I could eventually turn them over to the pet cemetery to be buried. I wouldn’t visit them but I would know then they are also disposed of respectfully.

      When Keiran died we had him privately cremated and were given a small urn with his cremains. Apparently bunny ashes don’t take up a lot of room because there’s plenty of space in there still, so when Reno died we had her cremains put in the same urn. We’ve written both their names on there, and we’re told that there’s still plenty of room in there yet. It may sound a little odd but I kinda like the idea of them being together like that. Plus it takes up a lot less space.

      When my first bunny died, we had her privately cremated as well, and the place that did it – they’re actually a human crematorium and they started up a pet sector! – they also gave us a sympathy card and a copy of the rainbow bridge story and a tuft of her fur and a foot print (which, with bunnies’ furry feet, looks more like an ink smudge on the paper than anything, but I liked it anyway!) They gave me her ashes in a cute little carved wooden box with a name plate. I just have her box sitting on a shelf in my bedroom with a framed picture of her and a candle that I burned for her while I was grieving. My boyfriend thinks it’s creepy that I have her ashes still, but to me it’s comforting. You know, this is one of those things that you really need to do what’s best for you and what makes you comfortable. I like the idea of the cabinet

      I had both my Bridge bunnies privately cremated as well. The company that my vet uses “Forget me Not Pet After Care” sounds similar to yours. They gave me the little cedar boxes with the poem and certificate all in a sweet little bag.

      I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to let them go..I guess I like to still have them with me. They are on a shelf in my rabbit room in the little cedar boxes with some little angel statues and their favorite toys. To some people this might seem morbid but I find it comforting.

      I think the downside of getting a pet privately cremated is that most places take a week or two to return the remains and it is hard to go “pick up the pet”. I found it re-opened healing wounds. But it’s still my method of choice.

      Sarita that sounds wonderful

      TBH I wish I had done something different with Kokanee rather then burial-if you do let them to ground-well you just cant part with the property right? Whereas if you have them with you-you can move so I think/wish that would be our case
