HEART-BREAKING MOMENT: Cat refuses to leave a dead friend behind by dragging its lifeless body

We have all heard about animals showing loyalty to fallen companions. However, until recently, a domestic cat's devotion to a fallen comrade has been unheard of!

Some people may find the photos in this article unsettling; please proceed with caution.

We’ve all heard, and maybe even witnessed, stories about animals who have lost a loved one. An elephant lamenting the loss of a young calf is trying to gain a response from a fallen buddy, a dog. House cats, on the other hand, are rarely reported to be doing something comparable. In China, a stray cat is about to change that.

A video has surfaced from China’s Songbei District, demonstrating the depths of a cat’s devotion to a fallen comrade. However, be warned: the footage is disturbing, as a spectator quietly observes a cat attempting to carry his fallen partner to safety after being hit by a car.

To say this footage is heartbreaking would be an understatement of the year, as this devoted cat sets off on his own quest to carry his friend’s heavy body to safety, not pausing until they are safely under a parked car.

People have differing views on why he is doing this. People have said that he needs privacy to grieve with his departed friend. Or that he’s trying to locate a place where his friend may heal, assuming he’s only stunned by the impact?

The footage was shot in Songbei District, Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, according to the Daily Mail. It’s unclear what happened to the slain cat. The most likely scenario is that he was hit by a vehicle. Onlookers, who aren’t sure what’s going on, may be heard saying:

“Look at the cat! Its friend is dead!”

One YouTube user continued, “No one is in the cat’s mind to truly understand why he is doing what he is doing,” implying that no one is in his brain. Thousands of people are likely to agree with this statement.

It’s also a valid point. We’ll never know the full extent of this cat’s anguish at his companion’s death. However, the film does demonstrate that domestic cats have strong feelings for one another. That they, like us, are affected by grief.

Look at video!
