Animal Sympathy Cards and Other Greetings

Inspired by my own losses, my animal sympathy cards focus on the joy of life with animal companions.

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 even fewer on cats in particular. 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 who lived with me or whom I fostered, and the dogs are ones I’ve come to know through friends and art customers. Most are feline cards because that’s the greatest amount of “material” I have, though I do have one canine card and two that could suit any animal. 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 of other cats, of dogs and bunnies and ferrets, 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.

In the years since I’ve designed these cards I’ve designed several more dedicated to the geriatric and hospice foster cats I’ve had the joy of knowing, even for just a short time. To read more about how these cards came to be and the remarkable cat whose loss inspired me to realize the dream of designing these cards, read “Animal Sympathy Cards” on The Creative Cat.

This line of sympathy cards for pet loss is 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 for an extra charge.

While these were created specifically for pet loss, customers have found that other of my cards serve to express sympathy as well, such as my Feline Fine Art Cards and the smaller sets of note cards. Here’s a little sample of various cards, below.
