This cute kitten loved her owner so much she couldn’t bear to leave her side. A year has passed since owner passed away, but the loytal kitty still hasn’t left her old lady’s grave. Passer-by Keli Keningau Prayitno, 28, from Central Java, Indonesia, was the first to hear the mourning kitty’s cries and tried to help the cat by adopting her. But that didn’t work – the next day the feline returned to the same spot – nuzzling the small blue headstone of her owner’s grave. 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, ” said Keli “It’s very sad to see. It shows just how close animals are to their owners.”

Keli heard the cries of a mourning cat that sat on her old lady’s grave

Animal experts say that cats may seem too cool and aloof, but grieving after an owner’s death is very real. Felines can also 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.
