This week I received a call from a grieving pet owner requesting detailed information about our Soft-Hearted Pillow Pet Urn. While this is not an unusual occurence, the circumstances of the call were.
This family had lost their cat, their pal of many years just days before the call. The woman was stealing up the nerve to make the trip to her veterinarians office to pick up her cat’s cremated remains. It has been my personal experience , which is echoed by the sentiments of my customers , that this step of picking up the ashes can be a very traumatic one; second only to the trip to the veterinarian’s office for the euthanasia if those were the circumstances of the loss. This woman went on to tell me that this cat had been the friend and constant companion of her 11 year old son. This boy, this eleven year old, had gone online searching for solace on the loss of his companion as well as a suitable memorial for him. His mother told me that her son had not been able to sleep without his cat friend snuggled next to him as he had done every night for the last eleven years.
When her son found our site and the Soft-Hearted Pillow Pet Urn, he immediately showed it to his mother and told her that “he knew he had a birthday coming up, it was a big gift, but the only thing that he wanted for his birthday was this comforting pillow urn to enclose his best friend so that he could always remain with him, especially cuddled together at night.”
His mother has granted his wish, the Soft-Hearted Pillow with his cat buddy’s name proudly embroidered across the front is on its way to an eleven year old boy, a lucky cat’s very best friend. Sleep well guys……
