Pet shrines are very personal and can be either simple or elaborate.
I have two wooden boxes that hold the ashes of two cats with a candle holder shaped like a cat. They have their paw prints and sympathy cards we got from when they passed. My dad recently built us a very cute shelving unit with room for when our other babies are ready to join them (hopefully those spaces will be empty for many more years). It's all up on the wall by the hall to our bedrooms.

Agreed with Nebit, shrines for beloved pets are very personal.

Since I am still in the process of settling after moving a while back, my current pet shrine simply has my kitty’s urn with his ashes in it on it. Previously though, at my old place, it had a white cloth, his ashes, a small bowl to offer water and kitty-safe foods, as well as some silk flowers and a photo of him. It was simple but pretty.

Just put things that remind you of him, and maybe some nice pretty silk flowers or a water bowl on it. I’d also look at threads on here where folks share shrines - lots of pics to see!

I have a little spot on one of my shrines where my Rottweiler, Kieta, has her place. Her cremains, picture, a squeaky toy and an occasional pizza crust, are close to a statue of Yinepu at His Scales. She visits regularly too!
