Heartbroken Cat Refuses To Leave Her Owners Grave For A Whole Year

Some believe animals have no feelings and feel no love, sadness, grief, or happiness like we do. I would say that even though they are physically different than us, they too feel emotions very close if not exactly as we do.

But some cases, like this dog miraculously showing up at his owners funeral, seem to show that they feel just as attachedto us as we do to them and grieve just like we do.

Many animals are amazingly obedient and dont like to leave their humans side for anything, and this trend can even continue after death.

This was the case for a poor Indonesian kitty who has been nuzzling, rolling around, and crying at her late owners gravesite for over a year.

Though people have tried to coax her inside with food, water, and a safe dry place to sleep, the mourning, meowing cat only cares about staying close to her late owner.

Many residents in Central Java, Indonesia, know of the kitty who spends her days laying in the dirt and crying around her late owners burial plot.

She has been offered food and water by many kind strangers, but refuses to leave the grave and hasnt for over a year.



One particular passerby, Keli Keningau Prayitno, tried to adopt the heartbroken kitty and give her a new home, but she was only interested in being back by thegrave.

“I thought she was homeless and tried to help, but every time, she would keep returning to the same place,” he explained to Daily Mail.

“Since the cats mother died, she has stayed here at the grave. She does not want to go home. She has been here for almost a year,” he continued.



One day, while observing the grieving cat, Keli noticed she was taking a rare trip away from the grave so he decided to follow her.

“I followed her and she was going to the home where she used to live, and the ladys children would feed her,” he reported to the Daily Mail.
