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 :(

Reminds me of the Red Dog story which is well known in Australia. If you treat your pet with love and respect, they will love and show you the same respect if not more.

It reminded me of the movie called hachi. True story of shiba inu dog in Japan back in 1920's. He walked his master everyday to the train station to go to work and would return at the end of the day to meet him. One day his master died from a heart attack while teaching and Hachi waited for him everyday at the train station for 10 years until he died. Very sad story but true. Shows how animals have more loyalty than humans.
