A year has passed since this cat’s owner ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ, but the kittie hasn’t left her old lady’s ɢʀᴀᴠᴇ ever since.
Passer-by Keli Kᴇɴingau Prayitno, 28, from Central Java, Indonesia, was the first to hear the ᴍᴏᴜʀɴing kittie’s ᴄʀɪᴇs and to try to help the cat by adopting her. But that didn’t work – the next day the feline was at her owner’s ɢʀᴀᴠᴇ as usual. The only times she ʟᴇᴀᴠᴇs 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 ɢʀᴀᴠᴇ every night.
Animal ᴇxᴘᴇʀᴛs say that although cats can seem cool and aloof, ɢʀɪᴇᴠing after an owner’s ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ is real. Felines can become anxious, ʟᴏsᴇ interest in the outer world, and become unlike themselves.
“She sleeps there and meows, ” Keli told Pets The Word . “It’s very sᴀᴅ to see. It shows just how cʟᴏsᴇ animals are to their owners.”
Someone tried to adopt the kittie, but she ran away to be next to the ɢʀᴀᴠᴇ. “I thought she was ʜᴏᴍᴇʟᴇss and tried to help but every time she would keep returning to the same place.”
Keli said he had follᴏᴡᴇᴅ the cat and found out the ex-owner had been an old lady named Kundari who had recently ᴅɪᴇd.
