Loyal Cat Returns To Owner’s Grave Everyday For One Year To Grieve

If you’re a pet owner, you’ve surely had a moment where you truly believe that you and your pet understand each other… Despite there being a language barrier. That bond is apparent when you look at dogs with their owners. Dogs show their love for their masters and even random strangers on their furry sleeves.

Cats, however, get a bad reputation for being aloof, unattached, and perhaps seeing humans as their servants, rather than masters. In reality, cats are loving, sweet beings who love us as much as we love them. One poor cat in Indonesia serves as a shining, yet heartbreaking, example of just how strong a connection cats can have with us.

What appeared to be a stray cat in a field in Central Java, Indonesia perplexed locals who tried to feed it and give it a home. Keli Keningau Prayitno heard the kitty meowing loudly as she passed by the area and went to investigate. Prayitno took the cat home, hoping to adopt it, but the next day the cat went back to the same area she found it in. Other people who noticed that cat tried to feed her or lure her away, but to no avail.

When Prayitno realized that the cat was returning to her old owner’s grave, they soon came to terms with the fact that the cat was grieving and inconsolable. “She sleeps there and meows, ” said Prayitno. “It’s very sad to see. It shows just how close animals are to their owners.” The only time the cat will leave the grave is to be fed by her old human’s family, returning back to the grave soon after.

The grieving cat has been glued to her owner’s grave for over a year now. Hopefully time will heal all wounds for the feline.
