This article from Melbourne’s The Age deals with the growing industry dealing with pet funerals.
We have a business that does this locally.
Here’s the intro and infographic:
WHEN 17-year-old tabby cat Moggy died recently from heart failure, there was no backyard burial.
Instead, the beloved pet was given an hour-long funeral at Animalia Pet Cemetery in Bacchus Marsh, complete with a celebrant, Buddhist readings, six mourners and $200 worth of white lilies.
She was then buried with her favourite toys in a handmade white coffin, with satin lining and lace pillows, to the music video of Kermit the Frog singing Rainbow Connection.
Moggy’s elaborate farewell is a long way from the traditional shoebox treatment that pets have received in the past.
