Heartbroken Cat Has Spent 1 Year By Her Dead Owner’s Grave

A year has passed since this cat’s owner passed away, but the kittie hasn’t left her old lady’s grave ever since. Passer-by Keli Keningau Prayitno, 28, from Central Java, Indonesia, was the first to hear the mourning kittie’s cries and to try to help the cat by adopting her. But that didn’t work – the next day the feline was at her owner’s grave as usual. The only times she leaves the spot is when she goes to her owner’s children’s house where they feed her. Strangers who see her also give her food and water, but the cat wants nothing but to roll in the earth and sleep at the grave every night.

“She sleeps there and meows, ” Keli told The Mirror. “It’s very sad to see. It shows just how close animals are to their owners.”

Animal experts say that although cats can seem cool and aloof, grieving after an owner’s death is real. Felines can become anxious, lose interest in the outer world, and become unlike themselves. In some severe cases, it is encouraged to contact a vet and discuss getting anti-anxiety medication for your cat.

And people say that cats are all aloof and will befriend anyone for food and warmth

Studies show cats and dogs release the hormone responsible for love, so this goes to show how wrong so many people are. I have seen cats become sad when their friends are gone.

My eyes are literally welling up reading this, it shows such loyalty from the kitty, in that even after her owner has gone, she refuses to give up on her :(
