The cost--a one-time payment, for CI members only--starts at $6,500 for a 
cat, exclusive of veterinary and other local and transporation expenses. For 
dogs, cost depends on size, and will be roughly proportional to the minimum 
for humans of $28,000, based on weight. 
  Seems in this corner that a similar service for storing human brains
could be offered for a price similar to storing cats. The volume/weight of
a cat being about the same as one of our big monkey brains.
  (I further presume a local mortician could be talked into shipping the
brain in an antifreeze/ice bath, [and cremate the rest of the body], for a
minimal surcharge.)
