When you lose a pet, it’s hard to imagine what the future is going to be like without them. Coping can be difficult. One popular way to cope with the loss of a pet is to find unique ways to remember them. Here are some ideas if you want to remember your pet in a special way:
Get A Tattoo
If you like tattoos, it might be a good idea to get a tattoo remembering your pet. You could get a portrait of them, their name, or something else that means something to you. Maybe a special date, or a sign that reminds you of them. You can be as abstract about it as you like as long as it means something to you! You don’t even have to get a large piece that everybody can see. Many people get something really small that means a lot to them.
Set Up A Place To ‘Visit’ Them
It might be nice for you to set up a special place you can visit them. For example, a spot they liked in the sunshine. Maybe you could plant a tree, or put a plaque on the ground in the garden. You could even have a bench. This can help you to feel closer to your pet when you’re feeling particularly sad.
Have Jewelry Made
This is quite a new concept but more and more people are doing it to feel closer to their lost pets. You can get pet memorial diamond jewellery made from their ashes. You can wear this jewellery every day to help you feel closer to your beloved pet. You could have a necklace, ring, or earrings. Whatever you think you’d wear the most.
Create A Photo Album Or Scrapbook
Something as simple as a dedicated photo album or scrapbook could help you to remember the good times with your pet when you’re feeling down. Print off pictures, write down memories, whatever you like. You could even write them a letter or poem if you’re feeling creative.
Have Their Portrait Painted
If you find an artist who’s style you like, you could have your pet’s portrait painted to put on the wall. You’ll have a unique and special piece of art that you can use to remember them forever. You could even do it yourself if you’re a bit of an artist.
Create A Website
If you’re tech savvy and like going online, why not create a website dedicated to your pet? You could have pictures, memories, videos - whatever you like and whatever you’d like to look back on to remember them. You could even have a blog where you write to them, or write how you feel to help you cope. There are lots of free blogging platforms you can use to help you create a site like this!
