Lio's life size urn / cat memorial by LimitlessEndeavours Lio's life size urn / cat memorial by LimitlessEndeavours
Here you see Lio's life size urn. My beloved cat died because of a heart disease in age of 5 years. This was a very personal and emotional project!

My great friend from Custom Art Berlin took this wonderful pictures in a park in Berlin Friedrichshain!

The urn is made of super sculpey, collected whiskers and acrylic color

Please Notice: I collected lost whiskers from my apartment! Lio was not harmed before and after his death!

This is beautiful, I'd love to do something like this for my girl when she passes (though I'm telling myself she'll live forever).

:( I'm so sorry for your loss. I recently lost mine as well 3 months ago, so I can understand how sore it must've been. :tears:

Very beautiful work though, it truly looks lifelike indeed. :huggle:

Congrats on the DD too, very well-deserved. :heart:

Poor Lio. You'll meet again, over that rainbow bridge.

I too recently lost a cat. Set.

He was one of six that I love and have had the honor to have in my life.

I am sad because it makes me remember him... And Jassu, a cat I've had since kittenhood, who I took to Arizona when I thought life would be better with my now ex-husband... And then, I left him there... I was escaping a bad situation... He went with a neighbor there... He became very ill. Too much.

Set's ashes are here with me, in a nice wooden box. I wish to get a name/message plate, and then I will put the ashes away for safe keeping inside a wooden chest given to me by my late great-aunt.

:hug: :hug: :hug:
