Unique Burial Urns Give Pet Owners Comfort and Flexibility
While discussing the topic of what to do with a beloved pet once it was gone from this world, someone mentioned on a forum how they had put their pet in a flower pot. The idea being the remains would “live on” naturally through a plant kept close by. Even better, when the family settled in a home in the future, they planned to bury the whole thing in the ground as a final tribute to their lost pet. This was the first time I was introduced to the idea of an eco-burial.
Another part of my mourning process was searching for a special box. Each pet had a unique container that I would select in the day after a pet’s passing. It had to be ornate, interesting, unique – just like the pet it would soon contain. To me, it was a time capsule. I often wondered if would be found one day much like archaeologists find pieces of lost civilizations. They would certainly know this was a beloved pet. When I was young, the box was complex. It was often a hand crafted sarcophagus shaped and decorated to look like the pet it would contain. As I grew up, the containers became simpler, refined, and functional, but the idea behind them remained the same.
What’s wonderful is I have recently found a company that has done all of this for me. Limbo is the maker of finely crafted urns. They’re perfect for your guinea pigs or other pet. The Limbo Zoo series of pet urns come in three styles – Nu Zoo, Geos Zoo, and Samsara Zoo. I personally love the design of the Geos Zoo. Each is created 100% animal origin free and 100% biodegradable and is designed to last over 20 years out of the ground.
With these unique products I can give my pet a burial in a special container and, when the time comes, a final resting place. A kind of life after death. How beautiful is that?
