Question about cremation

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My 15 y/o baby-girl tabby passed away yesterday morning. I was just wondering what my options were. I would like to cremate her but I'm not sure where to get this done. Right now her body is being stored in a Kitty morgue. Would a veterinarion be able to refer me to someone?

I'm very sorry for your loss. Yes, my veterinarian referred me to a local pet cemetery and crematorium.

I'm sorry about your loss.

My future mom-in-law had their vet take care of it for her. I guess they knew a local place that would do it, took the cat their and brought it back for her. I think that if you ask your vet they would know someone, or maybe even do it themselves.

Here is my baby girl at 13 years. She was beautiful every day of her life.

when i lost my baby Grace my vet took care of it, all i had to do was take her body to the office and they handled the rest- they sent her to a crematorium-they called me when it was done and i picked her up at the vets office. they even made a donation in her name to an animal care sanctuary.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss...she was a beauty!!! Our local shelter does cremations as does a local vet hospital. Perhaps checking these sources in your area might help you locate a place to cremate her....

Good Luck and Hugs!

I guess it's probably different in Ireland, but there's only one place in the country where they cremate pets and all the vets arrange the delivery and pick up there and back. I had my 12 year old cat cremated when she died last January, there are different options depending on wether you want the ashes back or a fancy urn etc.

Your cat was lovely and I'm very sorry for your loss...

My deepest condolences to you for the loss of your beautiful girl. What was her name?
Yes, her vet would be able to advise you on this; also, some communities even have businesses you can call and they will pick her up and honor your wishes, and bring her to you. The yellow pages in your local phone book would have that information if any exist in your area; but her vet would probably be the best person to contact. And they have a variety of options as to urn, cedar box, and others.

May the love you shared, and her beauty, remain forever in your heart and memory.

I have no advice but wanted to say I'm sorry for your loss. She was very beautiful and I know you'll miss her very much but she'll be in your heart forever.

When you feel ready, visit our Crossing the Bridge forum and post a tribute to your special girl.

I'm also going to move this thread to the Cat Lounge.

First of all, let me say, I am so sorry for your loss of your lil girl!!

My vet took care of all of that for me when my BLACK passed on 10/8/07. The cremation and the urn. It was a great service and was greatly appreciated!!
