Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Tribute to Topsy

We had Topsy's remains cremated, and the ashes returned to us, which we collected at the vet's office last week.  We were planning to bury the ashes in the garden and plant a rose bush in the spot, but when we found how beautifully the cremation company had packaged them, we decided not to.  
The ashes were in a plastic bag inside a little lilac tin, with her name printed on it.  There was a cremation certificate and a scented candle, all in a paper bag with paw prints.  Sooooooo cute....

Oh dear, Gina, I'm so sorry. It's so sad to lose a pet. Sigh.

I am so sad to hear about Topsy. Don't know what made me look here today and read the sad news. You will miss Topsy for a long time to come. I always use 'Pets at Peace' for a private cremation then place the ashes in my parent's grave. I think it helps to know we have done the best we can for our cats. Sylvia X
