How Do I Choose a Cat Memorial

Contented Cat Urn

Cats can be an important member of any family, so it’s no surprise that losing them can be devastating. Cats can live for many years and play a key role in our lives. You may find, when the time comes, you’d like to memorialise your special feline friend, but it can be daunting to know where to start. At Petributes, we’re here to offer you support and guidance. 

When your cat dies 

When your cat dies you can arrange for them to be collected from your home, or you can take them to your local vet or pet crematorium.  

You’ll then need to decide if you’d like your pet to be buried or cremated. If you choose cremation, you’ll also need to decide if you’d like to keep their ashes. If you’d like to have them close by then choosing how to store them will be important too. With this stage, it’s helpful to remember that there is no rush, and you’ll have time to decide when you feel ready and able to do so.  

Remembering your cat 

When it comes to remembering your cat, you’ll be the best judge on what reflects their personality in the right way. You may find that some options resonate with you more than others. Here are a few examples of ways in which you can remember and celebrate your cat’s life: 

  • Lighting a candle when you want to reflect on special memories. 
  • Posting on our online memorial wall. 
  • Donating to an animal charity in their name. 
  • Naming a star after them. 
  • Planting or laying flowers in your cat’s favourite outdoor spot. 

Cat memorial options 

At Petributes it’s important to us that you’re able to find a memorial which reminds you of your best friend. With a range of styles to choose from, there’s an option for every cat. 

Indoor Urns 

When it comes to indoor urns, there are many styles to choose from. Our figurine and sculpted urns beautifully capture the different personalities of cats while our decorative urns are suited to those looking for a more discreet option.  

Outdoor Urns 

If your cat’s favourite place was outside, then you may want to keep their urn outdoors. If this is the case, our HighDown Urn may be a suitable option. If the urn is buried, it can easily be removed and relocated when moving home. 


For those wishing to share ashes among family or only keep a small amount, our keepsakes may be an ideal choice. With different sizes and styles to choose from, there is a keepsake to suit every pet. Our Tribute Hearts are a popular choice and the perfect size to hold in the palm of your hand, while our Agate Memory Stones are discreet and easy to carry around. For when you want to light a candle and reflect on special memories that you shared, our Eternity Candle is a wonderful option. And for cats who lived with children, The Memory Bear is a comforting and huggable choice to help them feel close again. 

Photo Urns 

One of the most obvious choices for a memorial is a photograph. Our Tribute Frames and FramePods are cleverly designed with a discreet ashes container behind a frame and can be wall mounted or free-standing. These are the perfect choice if you want to keep your much-loved pet close by without others knowing it’s an urn. 

Whichever option you choose, we understand that your cat played an important role in your life. We’re here to help you remember them in the best way possible. We take great care in our products and service to provide you with the perfect memorial and support at such a difficult time.
