2 weeks ago we said goodbye to our beautiful little old lady Buggerlugs.

I'd had her since she was 8 weeks old and she was almost 18.

Making the decision to have her put to sleep was heartbreaking, but at the end was the kindest thing we could have done for her. She was a beautiful cat, whom had been our Furbaby and even DH cried at the end.

Anyway we chose to have her cremated and want to put her ashes into a potplant engraved with her name, and want to plant something as a memorial to her, so no matter where we go we can always take her with us.

I have no idea on what to plant. All I know is not a rose. Can anyone recommend a hardy plant for these purposes?

Thanks smile.gif

Catnip? Although if its outside you might attract unwanted attention from neighborhood cats? http://www.cat-world...ll-about-catnip

Sorry to hear about your furbaby sad.gif

Hardy plants that I wouldn't be able to kill: rosemary, lavender, camelias are good and hardy and have pretty flowers that are fun for kiddies to play with too!

I like the idea of a nice Lavender thanks smile.gif

Whilst rosemary would also be nice for me it's a culinary plant and the idea of eating a plant that has grown on top of her ashes is a bit ewww!

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your fur baby sad.gif

Was there a favourite tree you have that she used to sit under or near?

We have a have tree where our old fur baby used to lie under and are going to spread her ashes underneath that. She died 8 years ago....Mum still can't part with the ashes! sad.gif

We have a flowering coastal rosemary for Tully.
It's grows really well in a pot and I smile when I see a flower pop open on it.
Oh and you don't eat this one. I can take a photo on the weekend if you want.

Thinking of you.

I'm sorry for your loss sad.gif Saying goodbye to a pet is so sad sad.gif

A plant sounds like a lovely way to remember her. Would you prefer a smaller or larger plant? Indoor or outdoor? The two that come to mind that are really hardy are a zanzibar plant for inside, or for outside in a larger pot, a ficus.

Ohhh I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. They become such a huge part of our families and it is devastating to say goodbye. sad.gif

We planted a Coastal Woolly bush when we lost Fidel. We liked it cause it was soft and fluffy like him. smile.gif
