Degu memorial ornament
(Mahomet, IL) - December 29, 2011
I love the ornament! Looked everywhere, but couldn't find one with all of these features: allowed enough letters to put my pet's name (most only allow 8 letters); could put only one year (we adopted him from the Humane Society and don't know when he was born, only the year he passed away). Could do all of those things on this one. I also appreciated that I could choose whatever heading I wanted for the top of ornament; he hasn't been gone long, and I just couldn't face seeing "In Memory," or any other typical memorial phrase, whenever I looked at the Christmas tree. Love that it's porcelain instead of metal or tacky plastic resin. Best of all was the speedy shipping; I dithered around for so long that I missed the Christmas deadline at most places, but this arrived in plenty of time to hang on the tree. I do wish there was a non-cat/dog option, for those of us who have rodents, ferrets, birds, or cavies, but the cat paw was similar enough to a rodent pawprint to work.
