Each of these spherical urns can serve as a wonderful memorial to your pet's life. Engraving the solid brass closure with name, dates, and a few meaningful words will commemorate your pet, either by containing a portion of the ashes, or without any ashes. Some families choose to enclose mementos only, rather than ashes, within the sphere, such as tags, a lock of fur, a photo or a small bag of catnip as examples. Any small item that will fit through the 1.25" diameter opening may serve as a memento within your pet memorial, and we supply a velvet pouch for tags and a small ziplock bag for a lock of fur, or catnip for a cat. It can be helpful in processing the grief of loss by creating an inspiring remembrance of your loving friend.
