The headstone for domestic cat, Dewey, nicely sums up the relationship between human and cat. He lived from 1898-1910. His life was quite short but in those days the lives of domestic cats were on average shorter due to poorer veterinary services and poorer food. Cat food had not been invented. The cremation of humans in the UK started in 1885 so cat burials were the norm at the time of Dewey. Few would have had such a fine headstone and poetic, beautiful inscription.
It’s a great headstone and a very nice photograph too. There are advantages to burying your deceased cat rather than cremating her.
