These Cat Loss Memorial Products are a great way to remember your beloved pet. From a custom urn to beautiful jewelry containing whiskers, fur, and/or ashes you will find many unique ideas that fit the relationship you had with your favorite feline (or canine!).
The sudden loss of Rambo was so unexpected and so painful I immediately knew I wanted many different ways to remember his perfect self. I wanted to order things for him but also at the same time didn’t want to because it seemed like it would make it all too real if I did. Over time I ordered a few products that are very important to me now.
I hope this list helps you find something special that speaks to you. I will update this as necessary as I find more things that make me smile about Rambo.
P.S. I’ve started a Cat Loss Grief Journal as a place to put my thoughts about losing Rambo.
CAT LOSS MEMORIAL PRODUCTS
Custom Pet Urn
We ordered this custom pet urn from Etsy. I knew I wanted something special for Rambo’s ashes and when I saw this I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. It matches our house, isn’t too big, and honors our beloved Rambo well.
We ordered the white XS and choose the dove gray text color (Rambo was a large cat weighing in at 16+ pounds).
Note: It does take quite a bit of time from ordering until it ships but that is explained in the listing on Etsy.
Whisker Stud Earrings
These Whisker Stud Earrings are also from Etsy. They are so beautiful and you can just see the care that was taken to make them. I ordered mine with a green background to match Rambo’s eyes (I sent pictures to the store owner). They contain Rambo’s whiskers and some of his ashes. Lucky (his brother from another mother) also has one whisker included (his are black, Rambo’s were white). I wanted the earrings to be about Rambo but I also wanted to include a little bit of Lucky so adding one of Lucky’s whiskers is what we decided on.
Note: I ordered the 10 mm studs. I would advise ordering the smaller size (6 mm). I LOVE them but they are very large on my ears. They even seem to drag my ear down and the post is so long I have to take them out when I sleep otherwise they poke my head.
I ordered this Whisker Ornament from the same Etsy store as the earrings. I actually messaged the store owner looking for a cat face ornament and she found this one. I planned on using it as an ornament but it looked too small on our tree so I added a chain and wore it as a necklace and have hung it around the rearview mirror of my car. This could also work as a keychain! So many options with this product.
Same as the earrings, this contains Rambo’s whiskers and ashes plus one of Lucky’s whiskers.
I Will Survive Jar
I found this “I Will Survive” jar while we were in Boone, NC about a month after Rambo passed. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it but knew that I loved the saying on it. Once I received his urn and pictures I knew it needed to go on the shelf in my office. I put all of his things in it such as his favorite toy (the zip tie), his rabies tag, his microchip tag, the extra whiskers leftover from when his jewelry was made, and a Key Lime taffy (that I found from our trip months after we got back).
In case you are interested, the sticker on the bottom of this product says Easy, Tiger so I’m assuming that’s the brand.
Clay Paw Print
Our vet told us she was getting Rambo’s paw print for us. I’m glad they did this because I would not have had the mental clarity to think to do something like this.
I would really like to make it (paint?) so you can see the RAMBO and/or his paw print better but I am so very scared to mess anything up.
Rainbow Bridge Sticker
We have framed pictures of Rambo and Lucky in our laundry room. I hunted for something that I could put on Rambo’s picture and found this Rainbow Bridge Sticker on Etsy. It is perfect! I didn’t remove the backing or anything I just tucked it into the corner of the frame. I only wish I could choose the coloring of the cat to match Rambo.
I had a friend from high school paint a few portraits of Rambo. <3 You can also find something similar on Etsy.
I bought a dwarf butterfly bush and planted it in a pot (instead of the ground in the event that we move). I can’t wait to see it this summer! I also placed the Rainbow Ridge Rock my sister got me in the pot with it.
Rainbow Bridge Rock
My sister got me this Rainbow Bridge Rock (also off Etsy!). I love it and it’s currently in the pot with Rambo’s butterfly bush but I think I’m going to move it soon so that the outdoor elements don’t make it fade or ruin it.
Sunflower Metal for Garden
When we were at the garden shop I spotted a Metal Sunflower that you put in the ground. I placed it right next to the tree in our backyard. You can see it from the patio, living room, and bedroom.
How to Display Memorial Products
This isn’t really a memorial product but I had recently bought Rambo and Lucky a cactus cat scratcher. I lit it up at Christmas with Christmas lights and put an elf hat on it but decided to keep it lit up even after Christmas. I changed the Christmas lights to battery-powered “fairy lights” and left his picture on it also. It comes on automatically around 5:30 PM at night and turns off around 11 PM.
I haven’t quite arranged this the way I want but I also have a shelf in my office where I have Rambo’s urn, pictures, paw print, and my “I Will Survive” jar with all of his items in it.
