In Mexico, dead dogs and cats would never be honored on an ofrenda because it’s against the Catholic belief that animals are let into heaven, or allowed to return to visit with their families. True Day of the Dead believers in Mexico would cringe and think it insulting & in very bad taste to see Americans building ofrendas for their dead pets. However, these skeleton dogs and cats are intended to be hung on home ofrendas of pet lovers so the returning spirit might enjoy the memory of their beloved pets when they return.
