Cat Cremation

A dignified farewell for your feline

Cat Cremation in Wakefield, Leeds and the Surrounding Areas

Cat owners are often passionate about their animals, and for good reason too. We now know that cats can grow just as attached to their humans as dogs, and serve as well-loved members of the household for many years. To reward this loyalty, we perform one of the most dignified cat cremation services available. The Wild Wood is situated in Nostell, Wakefield, and welcomes recently bereaved cat owners from all over Leeds and the neighbouring regions.

Our license with DEFRA and the Animal & Plant Health Agency means we run a hygienic cat cremation service. Unlike most cat and dog cremation teams, we also source eco-friendly Euthabags to wrap your pet in a respectful way.

We carry out a free collection service within 10 miles of Wakefield. This includes Leeds, but if you live further away, we can also collect your cat at a minimal fee.

Cat Cremation

Care, Respect and a Beautiful Resting Place

Cats range from the shy and timid to the quirky and courageous. Either way, all cats showcase a unique personality of their very own. This makes individual cat cremations key to honouring who they were in life. Here at The Wild Wood, close to Haw Park Wood and Anglers Country Park, we only provide the ashes of your beloved feline. This makes us a trusted choice for all pet cremations across West Yorkshire, including the areas of Wakefield and Leeds.


Removing The Stress

The loss of a pet marks an incredibly difficult time. Our team knows this and will work flexibly to give you a hassle-free cat cremation experience. We manage all paperwork related to the cremation and can even perform emergency collections based on your needs. As a small team, we pride ourselves on great communication and the sensitive approach to match.

The Rest They Deserve

What’s most remarkable about cats is just how diverse their personalities can be. Whether you owned a lap cat in Wakefield or a fearless feline in the Leeds area, we have the ideal solution to suit their charms. Owners of an indoors cat may prefer to store the supplied ashes at home on a mantelpiece. For more adventurous cats, our naturally stunning woodland area serves as the perfect resting place.


A Timeless Keepsake

While all cat cremations come with a scatter tube, paw print and personalised card, we also sell additional items to make your cat’s farewell more unique. These pet memorials include framed casts of the nose and paws, leather keychains and living tree urns that enable the growth of new life.

If you choose to bury or scatter your cat’s ashes in our beautiful woodland, we suggest laying a plaque in their honour. Please speak to us for cat cremation, pet urns and more in Wakefield and the Leeds area.

Can’t find your question?
Here at The Wild Wood we base our pricing on the weight of your pet, therefore please contact us for an accurate price. We collect your pet and return ashes for free within 10 miles of us but if you need us to travel a little further we are happy to do this. We can provide a no obligation quote for additional mileage.
Here at The Wild Wood we only carry out individual cremations. It is a very similar process to human cremation. We collect your pet from your home or veterinary surgery. Your pet is then placed in a specially designed Euthabag and transported back to The Wild Wood. We take great care to treat your pet with dignity and respect as we take inkless paw and nose prints. We will also take a small lock of hair if possible. Your pet is then carefully placed into the cremator, intense heat turns the body into dried bone and dust. Once cooled, these remains are carefully removed from the cremator and processed through a cremulator to break down any bone fragments. After this process the ashes are placed into a scatter tube and returned to the pet owner as soon as possible. You will also receive a certificate of cremation alongside your pets paw and nose prints. If you have chosen to place ashes in an urn then your pets ashes will be placed inside of the urn before being returned to you.
Many people choose to keep their pets ashes close by at home. There are many options for permanent storage. You may choose to have a traditional wooden casket with an engraved nameplate or a stunning cast effect figurine of your pet, which blends seamlessly into your home. We have modern slate and pewter effect urns, which are a stylish and unobtrusive way of storing ashes. There are beautiful photo frames with a discrete compartment behind to store ashes, these are available in lots of different frame options and styles. Please do contact us for any advice as the options are endless.
For some people they do not feel comfortable with handling their pets ashes after cremation and that is absolutely fine. If a client does not wish to receive the ashes back then we carry out the same process of an individual cremation except that we scatter the ashes ourselves in The Wild Wood. We keep records of where and when these ashes are scattered so that the client can visit if they wish.
Here at The Wild Wood, we have very stringent procedures regarding traceability. When we collect your deceased pet we place them in a Euthabag. This bag is labelled and your pet does not leave this bag, they are cremated inside it. This means that anything that you wish to remain with your pet stays inside there. Whilst taking the nose and paw prints we do not remove the pet from the bag. Our strict paper trail then follows your pet through the process of individual cremation to the scatter tube and then back their pet parents. We are required by DEFRA to keep records of all movement and these are checked during our annual inspection. We hand deliver your pets ashes back to you at home to ensure you are reunited as soon as possible.
Of course. We encourage you to place anything special to your pet with them inside of the Euthabag. We can assure you that those items remain with them throughout the whole process.
