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.

 

Pregnant Dog Gets Her Own Maternity Photo Shoot

Maternity photos capture the beauty of pregnancy. They display the love shared between parents and their anticipation of new life. Usually these sessions are of baby humans, but these people brilliantly show that maternity photo shoots can be for our canine friends too.

According to People Magazine, Kennedy Sorenson, owner of Chanel the pregnant golden retriever, came up with the awesome idea 9 days before her dog was due to give birth. She contacted Amy Rients, a talented photographer and owner of LeeRoy the future father of the puppies, to run the idea past her, and she agreed.  The adorable images show Chanel wearing a flower wreath and LeeRoy wearing a blue bandana. The pups are lovingly posing side by side next to a sign that reads “9 days until Puppies.”

The photos were initially shared to Twitter where they have since gone viral with over 37k likes and 22k retweets.

They are crossing their fingers for a call from the Ellen show.

Check out the pictures of the adorable little puppies after Chanel finally gave birth. Share if you want Rients to do you dog’s maternity and family pictures!

Homeless Dog Is Rescued And Gets Instagramed At Pet-Friendly Restaurants In LA

When Popeye’s mom, Ivy, found him, she wasn’t in the market for a pooch because her house was too full. Ivy said, “he was such a mess – super skinny, heavily matted, dirty.” How could she say no? After moving in with Ivy and her husband, it wasn’t long before Popeye got an extreme makeover and found himself accustomed to the finer things in life.

Popeye along with his mom and dad are regulars at pet-friendly dining establishments in Los Angeles. A far cry from the life he lived before Ivy. Like anyone else in LA they document their meals on Instagram.

Ivy said “One of my friends, Jen, suggested that I create an Instagram account for Popeye because he was cute. Jen and I liked to go on what we call ‘Instagram dates’ and take pics of our food. I’d bring Popeye any time I can, and we realized he was really good around food. He doesn’t lunge for food or really even care for it. He just liked to be out. He’ll get nibbles of anything that’s safe for him. I also carry a bag of treats for him, in case there’s nothing he can have.”

Popeye now has over 108k followers on his Instagram, so if you’re trying to watch what you eat, at least you can vicariously live through this foodie cutie. Get your grub on Popeye!
