And suddenly there comes the confusion of what to do with the body? When furry family pet goes to another world, its owners are puzzled with a question: How to say goodbye? There are many companies in Toronto, which specialize on burial services for pets and are ready to help in such a hard situation.
Even ancient Egyptians knew how to bury a cat or other animal properly. Being by modern standards, deep ignorant people, they realized that the rotting remains are dangerous to humans. Unfortunately, today, many people have less responsible attitude to the question of pets’ burial, without hesitation, that their actions harm the ecological environment. You should know that a special cemetery was arranged in Toronto for these sad occasions, where you can bury your pet properly.
As you know, cats were considered sacred animals and lived almost in each house in ancient Egypt, and when the animal died, households were simply inconsolable. According to tradition, they shaved their eyebrows as a sign of mourning. In our time, the death of a cat is considered not less tragically occasion, but it is possible to grieve for your loved friend in quite different manner. Knowing that cats go before you die, try to make sure that the animal has not gone unnoticed. This does not mean that we should follow it but still do not let it die in a place where you will never find it! And once that happens, you have to take some important steps. First of all, you should know that animal body burial in the city is illegal in accordance with sanitary and environmental standards. Therefore, the first step is cremation.
Cremation is certainly one of the best ways to say goodbye to a pet. Today this service is provided by the majority of veterinary clinics in Toronto. In municipal clinics cremation of cats is a joint utilization of corpses of dead animals by burning in a furnace. The owner pays for the service, leaves the remains at the clinic and a parting ceremony ends. Doctors of private Toronto clinics provide a service of individual cat cremation. If desired, the owner may be present at all stages of the cremation and take the ashes, placed in a special box away. If you are unable or unwilling to watch the procedure, the owners are provided with the video as a proof that remains of four-legged friend really were burned. Of course, only the owner decides where to cremate a cat in a common oven with other animals or in a private clinic crematorium.
Ashes can be stored at home or buried on a special cemetery. It is possible to order a beautiful urn made of any material: wood, ceramic, metal or colored plastic with a bas-relief, gold lettering, engraving, pictures or without them. We wish our readers many happy years in the company of pets and inexhaustible mental strength at the moment of farewell.
