I have had a lot of animal companions in my life and I now have a lot of boxes of ashes.  I do not get comfort from having them as some people do.  Instead I find little boxes at the thrift store and I decorate them with their pictures, their tags, poems, etc. when they pass.  No two are alike because all of my cats and dogs were unique in their own way.  These bring me comfort.  I think about digging a hole in my yard and putting all of the ashes in there but then I think what if I regret it. I don't think I would regret it but what if I do?

JoAnn, I picked urns for the ashes. I tried to pick ones that I felt reflected their personality. I also put their things by their urns, or items that remind me of them. I have 2 Christmas ornaments, one a white cat, and one a tabby cat that are close to two of the urns, and for Gabby, I put her bowls, and her collar near her urn. The one thing that I wish I had known with Gabby, is that they do not pawprints like they did with Harry, nor do they give us a small bag with their fur. If I had known, I would of asked for those. But, the little boxes you are doing sound like a great idea, and so special as they would be less generic than an urn that you buy.
