It’s never easy losing a loved one, even if that loved one happens to be a cat. So when Steve Munt lost his cat, Pikachu, he decided to honor his cat by launching the cat’s ashes into space.

Pikachu’s ashes will be onboard a satellite so every time the satellite passes overhead, Steve Must will be able to remember his beloved cat. Remember, each cat has a limited life span so besides focusing on keeping your cat alive as long as possible, strive to make your cat’s life as fulfilling as possible each and everyday.

The more fulfilling your cat lives every day, the more fulfilling you’ll likely live each day as well, so both of you will benefit.
