This will break your heart.
We are told that dogs, being pack animals, are very loyal. Cats, however, are solitary by nature.
We are also told that non-human creatures don’t have feelings like we humans have.
But a homeless cat in China demonstrated not only loyalty to its companion, but a depth of feeling rivaling — and perhaps surpassing — those of humans.
Tiffany Lo reports for the Daily Mail that on July 2, 2018, in the Songbei district of Harbin, northern China, a stray white-and-yellow cat was seen dragging the lifeless body of another cat by its mouth.
Clearly exhausted, the cat had to stop to gather strength as it struggled to lift up its companion’s body.
Onlookers can be heard in the video saying: “Its friend is dead. Look at the cat.”
The devoted cat eventually succeeded in sheltering the lifeless body of its companion under a car.
