In a touching incident that recently took place in Qingyuan, South China's Guangdong Province, where a pet cat in critical condition waited for its owner coming home from far away and bit its owner's clothes tightly before passing away peacefully, as if bidding a final farewell.

A female college student studying at a university in East China's Jiangxi Province received a call from home in Qingyuan informing her that her beloved cat was in critical condition. Without hesitation, the student quickly applied for a leave, purchased a ticket to return home, and embarked on the long journey back that very night.

Upon reaching home, the cat, with its last moment, bit the student's clothes tightly, refusing to let go until it took its final breath, as if bidding a final farewell. The student wrapped the cat in the same clothes and buried it next to their home.

This story touched the hearts of many netizens, with some expressing admiration for the cat's apparent spiritual connection with the owner. One netizen commented, "Perhaps the cat wanted to remember the owner's scent and presence in its final moments." Another speculated, "Why did it bite the clothes? I think the cat wanted to say, 'I will miss you dearly, thank you, see you in the next life, my family.'"

Some netizens noted that the cat was only five years old, leading them to believe that it may have passed away due to illness. Others were reminded of their own departed pets and expressed their longing for them.
