Hello everyone, a warm welcome to my Pet Memorial Website.
A bit about me, I was born in Zimbabwe, but currently live in New Zealand, with my husband and young son. We work and live on my husbands parents Kiwi Fruit Farm by day, and in my free time I try to help people by blogging on this site.
Animals have been a life long love of mine and I have been blessed with pets for as long as I can remember. Sadly we often have to farewell our fur babies and this can be traumatic and overwhelming.
We have recently said goodbye to our beloved cat, Felix, who I was lucky enough to share 17 years with. He was a feisty, independent and really loving cat.
My Journey into Helping Grieving Families
I have always had a strong desire to work within the animal industry but never figured out how to do this in a manner that felt 100% right.
A number of years ago I was unsatisfied with my job and happened upon a Pet Crematorium looking for help in my area. I applied for the position and was accepted over 300 other applicants, I knew I had found my calling. Once I knew that what I was doing was a great fit for me, I managed to purchase the business in my area.
During this time I met so many families that trusted me to look after their animals from this world into their final resting place. We shared wonderful stories, and we shed bucket loads of tears. I never figured out how not to weep over every pet I looked after.
Sadly after a number of years I had to move to another town and leave behind what had been an incredible emotional journey and time of growth.
Dealing With Loss
Being trusted to look after so many peoples wonderful pets once they had left this world was an honor and taught me so much about love, our pets and moving on.
I now have the opportunity to help grieving families during this devastating time by sharing some of my insights with you and just being there for you and your fur baby.
Let’s Honor Our Pets
My wish for this website is to let you know that I am here to help you deal with the trauma of losing a loved pet.
I have come to realize that a number of people feel at a loss on how to move on right after they say bye to their pets and I hope to answer some questions that can be uncomfortable to ask, to share some lovely stories with you and to maybe help you with suggestions that have worked for other families whose pets I have looked after.
If you ever need a chat or have any questions, feel free to comment below and I will be more than happy to connect with you.
No longer with us, but forever in our hearts.
Pets Forever Loved
