The cat was first heard crying while lying in the dirt by a burial plot in Central Java, Indonesia.
She refuses to leave the site of the grave, even though new homes have been offered to her.
Astonishingly, the cat visits her former home daily where she is fed by her owner’s children and eventually returns to the site of the burial.
As reported by the Mirror, a passerby named Keli Keningau Prayitno, 28, tried to adopt her, but she refused to leave the spot and always returns to rest by the headstone.
“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 she would keep returning to the same place everytime. She sleeps there and meows. It’s very sad to see. It shows just how close animals are to their owners,” Keli said,
Keli discovered that the former owner had been an elder lady named Kundari who had died recently.
