While we hear moving stories about dogs’ loyalty, the loyalty of cats is barely ever acknowledged. In a recent viral video from the Songbei district in North China, we see a grieving cat who is still holding on to the body of her dead friend.

As per onlookers’ accounts, the white-and-orange cat stood over her friend’s lifeless body and tried to revive her. She was clearly in denial about her friend’s death. In desperation, the cat held the limp body in her mouth and started dragging her to a nearby shelter to get help.

In this video, we see the cat struggle to get her dead friend to the shelter. She is visibly exhausted as she tries to tow the dead body through the under space of cars. She doesn’t leave the body alone even for a second and keeps inching forward with much difficulty.
