In case you needed a good cry today, this cat in Indonesia is here to serve that purpose.
The cat, who is unnamed, lives by her owner's grave now that her owner, Kundari, has passed away.
It's been almost a year since Kundari died, but her cat still sits with her every day. She refuses to leave the grave site despite multiple attempts for adoption from passers-by. The cat just sits, meow, sleeps, and cries for her lost loved one. People come every day to give the cat food and water, but she never goes home with any of them. She just sits on the grave-site and cries all day.
One man, Keli Prayitno, tried to adopt the cat but when he took her home, she returned to Kundari's grave.
"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 wold keep returning to the same place. I saw her everyday and noticed that she was always there, but sometimes would leave for a couple of hours then come back. I followed her and she was going to the home where she used to live and the lady's children would feed her. 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," says Keli.
Wow, what a way to break my heart. This cat is clearly in mourning, but it is so lovely that she can find peace with her human best friend even after she has passed on. It's truly amazing the connection we can form with animals.
