This Cat Won't Leave His Owner's Grave

This pretty kitty lives right on top of a grave in Central Java. Naturally, it's not just any grave -it's the grave of his beloved owner, Kundari, who took the feline in when it was just a baby. He does leave the grave here and there -to visit the son of his owner to get cuddles and food, but while Kundari's son tried to adopt the cat, the little guy refused to stay at his home long and always left to go to the cemetery again. Since the pictures of this poor little babe came out, village locals now come visit the grave and give the kitty affection and food.

There have been stories of many dogs and cats doing this throughout the years, so there has to be some way that they recognize the importance. My guess would be either that they recognized their owner's smell when they were first buried or that they followed the owner's body as it went into a coffin and then into its resting place.
