This poor grieving cat is said to have lived in the grave of its late owner for an entire year.
A heartbroken animal was first heard crying as it lay on the floor of a burial site in Central Java, Indonesia.
When Keli Keningau Praitno, 28, walked past the cat, startled by the tiny blue gravestone, she tried to adopt him, but he returned to the same spot.
Each day, the animal returns to its former home to feed the old lady’s children, then returns to the grave.
He refuses to leave the tomb, although he is fed and watered by passers-by. He rolls in the ground and sleeps there every night.
According to father-of-one Kelly, “Ever since the cat’s mother died, he’s been sitting here by the grave. He doesn’t want to go home. He has been here for almost a year.”
“I thought he was homeless and tried to help but each time he came back to the same place.”
“I saw him every day and noticed he was always there, but sometimes he would leave for a few hours and then come back.”
“I followed him and he was going to the house where he was living and the lady’s children were feeding him.”
“Then the cat would come back to the same place. He sleeps there and meows. It’s very sad to see. It shows how close animals are to their owners…
Despite being offered many new homes, the cat is still seen in the grave day and night, even a year later.
“We bring food and water to the cat, but he always likes to come home. He is on the grave every day.”
