Panda's Memorial Altar

I picked up Panda's cremains on Saturday morning and brought them home. I wanted to to do something special for her, so I set up an altar to honor her spirit and her memory. I thought it turned out well and I hope she would be pleased.

The black iron pentacle is a candle holder. There is a little bowl in the center of it which I put some treats in. The "good cat" bowl has a little water in it. A toy mouse is on top of her oak urn, and a green cat collar with tags is beside the urn. Panda wore a collar at home for a short time, but like most of my cats, she found a way to take it off. I don't even know if this was her collar, but it represents her freedom from her earthly body. The azaleas are from my yard. The candles are battery operated and they are entirely glass. I rarely burn candles at home because I don't trust my cats. I've seen a friend's cats singe whiskers and tails because they've gotten too close to a flame.

I was going to buy some flowers, but the azaleas are beautiful this year. It's a bit difficult to distinguish the color differences in the pinks and reds. The white blooms are the largest. The red blooms are directly below that. Light pink blooms are to the left and deeper pink blooms are to the right.

I'll leave this up for a week or so, then I will move it to a bookshelf that I'm clearing off.  She will join Angel Colin Feral's cremains on the shelf.
