Farewell products recently introduced the first-ever complete Pet Funeral Kits. The kits are eco-friendlier than many of the over-the-top gaudy memorials available. And, they’re designed so that the whole family can participate in saying farewell to your cherished pet.

The kits include a bio-degradable keepsake box, urn or casket, as well as a non-denominational funeral service and guidebook designed to help families through the grieving process, a workbook for children, and a paint and brush set to personalize your cat urn, cat casket or keepsake box.

All of the kits including the cat urns, cat caskets and keepsake boxes are made from birch and are delivered in flat packages made from recycled cardboard. The keepsake boxes, caskets and urns for cats are also biodegradable.

Kits are available to fit pets of all sizes, from hamsters to cats and the biggest dogs. They’re easy to assemble as you don’t need any special tools or materials—everything you need is included in the kit.
