Veronica at rest


We searched all over the internet for the "right" place for Veronica's remains. We found what we were looking for at a company in Minnesota, of all places, which doesn't normally ship to Canada, but who will if you phone them up and make special arrangements. And the customer service lady will call you "hon" all the way through the phone conversation, just like she did with Husband.

We wanted something personalized. "Good Kitty" was important to us. They were her praise words in life, and the last words we said to her. She knew what those words meant. They're in quotes because we want them to be from us, to her. The photo makes it look like the engraving is tilted, a little. It isn't in real life. It's exactly what we wanted for her.

So that's it. She's home now, on the mantle, where she'll stay with us. Thank you, Minnesota.

That is a very handsome urn -- and very appropriate use of quotation marks.

If our experience can predict yours, that collar will stay forever. Boo's, Max's, and, of course, himself's, are permanently draped over the tops of their vessels.

Good kitty.

Very nice.

Although I hope you never need them for this sort of thing ever again, my services were and are at your disposal if you should ever have any sort of "we don't ship to Canada" issues again.

Thank you Sherwood. Kind words. Yes, that collar isn't going anywhere.

Dann, thank you for a very kind offer. It means a lot and we will keep it in mind.

I hadn't realized she was born in '97! Was she with you from kittenhood?

Loved forever.

Ruth: Yes. She was 4 months old when we adopted her from the SPCA. :) Loved forever.

I think cloisonne urns are the most beautiful and the urn is a fitting tribute for someone that was loved dearly.
