This line of sympathy cards for pet loss are 5" x 7" , printed on 14 pt. card stock and include a matching envelope, packed in a clear-top white cardboard greeting card box. Cards are blank inside but can be customized with your message (please convo on Etsy). Most are feline cards because that's the greatest amount of material I have, though I do have one canine card and one that could suit any animal.

I have also found that people use these cards for human sympathy or even for "thank you", "thinking of you" and even romance, especially for those who share a love for animals. Loss is about love, and when I designed these I focused on that love instead of the pain.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK
As an artist I turn my emotions into creative output. Thus it is with the grief I've felt at the losses of my cats through the years. After receiving many sympathy cards I realized that not too many are focused on the loss of an animal companion, and I vowed to create a line of sympathy cards drawn on my own experiences that would feature photos and paintings of my cats and others' animal companions as well as artwork and photos not focused on any species.

Each of the cats depicted here was or is one of mine and the dogs are ones I've come to know through friends and art customers. I am currently working on more dog images; I take the use of an animal's image in one of my designs very seriously and while I have many lovely photos and have been offered many more, I feel I need to know my subjects before I use their image.

My cats have no choice, especially "if they like to eat" as I always tell them when they roll their eyes about being my models.
