From their playful pouncing to their uncanny ability to lighten your mood, cats are considered more than just family pets-to many, cats are considered family members. Despite their independent nature, cats depend on you for sustenance and attention. Be it with affectionate strokes or fun-filled play, your cat appreciates the time you spend with him just as you appreciate the time he spends with you. This time spent together drives the bond between you and your cat, while instilling the sense of family and responsibility you, as the pet parent feel. Cat memorials help to preserve and honor the bond shared between you and your cat. While the life expectancy of a cat varies by situation, lifestyle and breed, domesticated cats generally have relatively long life spans, with an average range of 12-15 years. After caring for your cat for the majority of or in some cases, his entire lifetime, it's highly justifiable for you and your family to grieve his loss after he passes. While there is nothing better than time to help you through your loss, memorializing your cat can help perpetuate the love and companionship he has provided to you and your family. Of the various cat memorials available, select one that best embodies your beloved cat and preserves his memory over a lifetime.
