Animals understand things much better than some people give them credit for. They might just have different ways of showing and dealing with it. A cat called Bear was best friends with his brother Boo, per The Dodo. They were inseparable and each other's favorite playmates. But unfortunately, as per an update from their owner Talia Rycroft, who goes by @taliarycroft on TikTok, the younger cat Boo passed away one day. Rycroft didn't know how much Bear understood but was still worried about his well-being.

They made a grave for the cat in their backyard. The woman was on the lookout for Bear in case the cat showed any signs of distress because of his beloved friend's passing. But instead, she witnessed the warmest thing as she found the older cat visiting Boo's grave time and again. The video's text overlay read, "Our younger passed a few days ago and his brother (my son) won't leave his grave." The cat could be seen playing around and rolling on the grave that was decorated with flowers and a caterpillar plushie that could have been Boo's favorite toy. “Someone give me the WHOLE box of tissues, I’m so sad,” the heartbroken cat mom wrote in the caption of the video.

Yet Bear seemed to be content to be at the grave and feel his brother's presence in some way. He also refused to move from there. People took to the comments section of the video to share their experiences about a grieving pet. @calo88 wrote, "It’s crazy that even across species, none of us feel comfortable accepting death." @trewinparent commented, "My cat that was overweight refused to eat when my other cat passed, she lost fur from the stress but she’s finally back to good, took her about a year to get over it." @zenreset1 shared, "When one of our cats died, our dog and another cat would wait on the couch looking out the window for him, so 2 months later when the other cat passed away, our dog would just sit there, staring, waiting."

In another video, Rycroft shared how Bear was trying to dig up the grave. "Bear has been digging Boo's grave up for the past 30 minutes..." the text overlay read. Initially, the woman thought that the cat was just trying to relieve himself but that was not the case. "My heart is breaking," Rycroft admitted. In the caption, she added, "My heart can't take this pain anymore." @akosisenyorita pointed out, "He is playing with him. One last play I guess. Like the other cat is saying its final goodbyes."

@littlefae shared, "Cats can see things we can't, he's probably playing with his friend and asking what happened to him. Thoughts and love dear, you'll see Boo if you look for him." @tacos5553 recounted, "We brought our dog to the cemetery after my dad passed and he dug at the ground for a while then he laid there and cried." @puff248 asked, "Aww my heart can’t take this. Are you thinking of getting bear another sibling?" Rycroft replied, "Yeah definitely we will. But Boo passed 3 days ago, so we need a bit more time, depending on how Bear feels."
