Ashes to Ashes

I picked up Giorgio's ashes today. The IM vet hospital had also printed out "Rainbow Bridge" on a piece of paper with a rainbow and a paw stamp. Then when I got home, I had a card from them, with a note from everybody who worked with him and I started crying again. They'd had my one-kitty carrier, and I brought it home and Spirit and Shiva looked it over. Spirit looked in every hole to make sure Giorgio wasn't there. Then they both went down to the bedroom and have been sitting together on the bed. Not cuddling, but touching, so maybe Spirit may not need a teddy bear. I bookmarked one that's washable, just in case. It's meant for kids with dust allergies, but in this case, I'm the one with the allergy.

The box the ashes are in is from the same company but smaller. I wonder if they used to use human-size boxes for the pets and went to a smaller one. I may ask to trade, or something, since the older boxes are pretty big. (The crematory does both humans and pets -- the pets in batches or individual and I always pay for individual.)
