It is understandable why people get depressed when their pets pass away. While they may understand on an intellectual level that the pet is not the same as a human, it may theoretically cause as much grief as the death of a close friend. It is for this reason that people set up pet headstones. To remember the deceased.
And there are a lot of people with pets in America. More than half of the third of Americans who have a cat own more than one cat. 39 percent of households also own a dog. It is for this reason that there are businesses that specialize in providing animal headstones and which will probably continue to do so in the future.
Pet headstones can be a great reminder of the good times. Of course, having pet headstones will not bring your pet back, but it can be a great way for people to get over whatever psychological difficulties they might have, adjusting to no longer having that kind of life around the house.
Pets can give rise to a thousand great photographs and memories. And it is for this reason why so many people want something to remember them by. Nonetheless, it is important that, when these pets do pass away, people have some way to give some sort of conclusion or punctuation to the end of the friendship. It is for this reason that pet headstones will probably continue to be an important part of adjusting for anyone who is interested in moving beyond the memories.
