Heartbroken Cat Stays on Owner's Grave - a Year After Her Death
The cat refuses to go to a new home and plays in the dirt next to her former owner's headstone.
A cat in Indonesia was so devastated about her owner's death that the feline has spent a year staying by the grave of the woman she loved most.
The cat, whose name is not known, lives in Central Java, Indonesia, and was first thought to be homeless. Local man Keli Keningau Prayitno even tried to adopt the feline, but the cat returned to the grave.
He saw the cat hugging the headstone, playing in the dirt and sleeping on top of the grave.
He told SWNS.com: “Since the cat's mother died she has stayed here at the grave. She does not want to go home. She has been here for almost a year. I thought she was homeless and tried to help but every time she would keep returning to the same place. I saw her every day and noticed that she was always there, but sometimes would leave for a couple of hours then come back.”
The cat even ventures to its old home, where the deceased owner’s family stays, and gets fed. After eating, the cat walks back to the grave each day.
“I followed her and she was going to the home where she used to live and the lady's children would feed her,” Prayitno told SWNS. “Then the cat would go back again to the same place. She sleeps there and meows. It's very sad to see. It shows just how close animals are to their owners."
