An orange cat in Kelantan has shown us Malaysian netizens what unconditional love truly is.
For over two years now, Nana the cat has visited his owner's grave every day after his death without fail.
Sharing the story on Facebook group Kelab Pencinta Kucing Malaysia, Hazlynn Nozi shared how her father's cat has stayed loyal to him even after his passing.
"It's been over two years since he passed. But from the first day until today, Nana has been visiting dad's grave every morning," she wrote.
According to Hazlynn, on the first day after her father passed, Nana was already the first to be at his grave, waiting for the rest of the family to arrive
Hazlynn told Malay Mail in an interview that Nana was quite affected by her father's passing and had lost some weight in the first few months due to poor appetite.
"He was better after three months and started eating normally but he would also linger around where dad spent his time - like on the swing, which was dad's favourite spot or even sit on his old car," she said.
Nowadays though, Hazlynn observed that Nana has made a habit out of sitting next to or sleeping near her late father's grave every morning.
"The grave is behind the mosque, and the mosque is beside our house. Every time he comes back home to ask for food, his paws would be wet with morning dew from the grave."
Hazlynn shared that her father, who was a retired teacher, was always fond of cats and took good care of many of them.
However, it was six-year-old Nana that was her father's favourite.
Hazlynn explained that when her father was alive, he always fed Nana in the morning before he went to the mosque.
"Nana had a special bond with dad. He was extremely close to him," she said.
"Nana always followed dad to the mosque and waited for him to finish his prayers before he followed him back home."
"There was a bond that this cat had with dad as compared to the other cats at home," she concluded.
Needless to say, Nana's story sent hundreds of netizens crying in the comments section of the Facebook post
Among them was a Facebook user who highlighted how sad Nana must have been.
"The first day of his owner passing, his face looks so sad," she commented with a cropped close up of Nana's expression.
Meanwhile, another netizen asked Hazlynn to take good care of Nana.
"Please take care of your late father's cat properly. There's a reason behind all this. Your orange cat is so loyal," she said.
