From ancient Egyptians to Instagram influencers, cats have long been worshipped by humans. Many of the Dignity team are cat owners so we understand the pain you are going through when you lose a cat. That’s why we offer individual cat cremations at our peaceful crematorium in Hampshire so that your cat receives the send off they deserve.
Individual cat cremation
We only carry out individual cremations at Dignity, so not only do you know that your cat is being looked after on their own, but that you will only get their ashes back. Some larger companies offer a communal service where pets are cremated together, ask your vet if you are unsure which service they offer. If you'd like to know more you can read all about our working procedures here.
Getting your cat to Dignity
There are three ways to get your cat to Dignity:
- Bring your cat directly to us
- Arrange a home collection
- Request a collection from your vets
Once your pet is with us you can choose to come in and say goodbye in one of our farewell rooms if you wish.
How much does cat cremation cost?
We want to be clear with our clients about our costs and there are no hidden charges or fees for using our service. Our team will run through all the options with you, but all additional items and services are completely optional. The cost for an individual cat cremation at Dignity is £150. You can opt to have a Same Day Cremation for an additional £40, or an Attended Cremation for £60.
We offer a range of pre-cremation options such as taking your cat's paw prints that can be used to create a range of memorial products including jewellery, cushions and candles.
Cat caskets and urns
Your cats ashes can be scattered here at Dignity or at home, we can place them into a bamboo pouch or biodegradable tube. Alternatively you can choose a simple casket or urn if you'd like to bury the ashes. We also have a wide range of caskets and urns designed to keep on display in the home, including picture frames with hidden ashes compartments, cat shaped urns and Keepsake Hearts.
Cat memorial options
There are so many ways to pay tribute to your cat, and we want to help you do that. We can create a bespoke piece of pet memorial jewellery using their paw print or a small amount of ash. There are also products that can be personalised such as a remembrance cushion or a memorial stone for your garden. See the full range of cat memorial products we offer online here.
