Lovesick Cat Expresses Sweetest Grief Over Owner’s Absence
Cats are far more fascinating than dogs. It’s difficult to pin down their complex body language and subtle personality. And while most cats do not behave in a manner that would be considered normal, some can’send’ messages. This adorable black cat is the impressive example of it.
This year, Erin Nimrichter and her son Max adopted Yuuki. Max wanted a pet to keep his mother company while he was abroad because he was going to graduate and join the army.
They were looking around the shelter for a new pet when Yuuki caught their eye. Max and his mother knew he was the one because he looked a little panther. In honour of Yuuki Matthews, a member of The Shins, the cat was given the name Yuuki. In the following six months before the youngster went, Max and Yuuki grew close. During that time, they were inseparable, they shared a bed and spent the day snuggling.
Yuuki was meant for Erin as a pet, but he formed feelings for Max. Dr. Elizabeth Stelow, a University of California expert on animal behaviour, believes that just as people and cats have various relationships with one another, so do cats and people.
Yuuki began to meet Max every day at the window after he moved out of the house. The cat started staring at a picture of Max after realising after a few weeks that the boy wasn’t going to return anytime soon. Erin said that she would look at the picture for hours on end, sometimes meowing at it.
Yuuki and Max obviously have a strong bond, and she simply cannot stand to be without him. A video of Yuuki’s actions that Erin published to YouTube quickly became popular.
Luckily for the adorable black cat, she won’t hesitate to meet her favourite person right away. In the coming weeks, Erin plans to pay a visit to Max, and she can’t wait to see Yuuki’s expression when she sees her again.
