One of my favorite items, this urn has sixteen different cats in different positions of playing resting sitting and sleeping. I think it captures a lot of cat energy and also it's a nice sculptural art pottery piece. The cat urn is 5" high and holds over two cups of volume. A average sized cat's ashes fit easily in this jar and you can leave the ashes in the bag from the cremation. You can secure the lid with a couple of drops of glue, silicone or earthquake wax to keep people from taking the lid off. If you have been looking for a jar for your pet's ashes this is a very nice sculptural vase for the purpose. It is available white and celedon crackle and all our regular matt colors as well as the two tone jade.
