Cat Lives on Her Owner’s Grave for a Whole Year without Leaving despite Attempts to Adopt Her

She definitely misses her owner.

Though animals are known NOT to have human-like emotions. Many people believe they sense when their owners are in pain, or are uncomfortable. These animals may not CRY as any human would, but they surely show a kind of loyalty no human could ever match.

Passer-by Keli Keningau Prayitno (pictured below), 28, saw this cat lying on the same spot Central Java, Indonesia for over a year and was amazed by the cat’s loyalty to her owner. Apparently, the former owner had been an old lady called Kundari who had recently died.

Keli said: ‘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 would keep returning to the same place..


‘I saw her every day 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.’


Keli added: ‘We take some food and water to the cat but she still likes to go home. She’s at the grave every day.’

Keli tried to adopt the cat but it returned to the same spot – nuzzling the small blue headstone. The owner’s children would also feed the cat on a daily basis, but she would return to the same spot after eating. She’s definitely one loyal friend!
