Abandoned Cat Sits In The Same Spot Every Day, Waiting Patiently For Its Family To Come Back

These sad pictures were posted on VKontakte, the Russian version of Facebook, by Ostap Zadunayskiy who praises the locals for feeding this lonely cat as she sits on the very same spot she was dumped.

Apparently, the former owners sold their apartment over a year ago in the city of Belgorod in south-western Russia's Belgorod Oblast region, leaving their cat behind, and just driving off as shet chased after them.

Ever since the forlorn feline has been sitting day after day on the same manhole cover.

Shots were first taken of the cat in 2015 and ever since it has taken the internet by storm. It seems, however, that this cat's new-found fame has not lead to her finding a new home.

A video has been posted reputedly showing the cats hideaway in the snow amongst some abandoned buildings. Mr. Zadunayskiy said: "This is a great example of human meanness and true animal loyalty."

Many Internet commentators quoted from the book The Little Prince, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, which says: "You become responsible forever for what you've tamed."

However, despite the cat's newfound internet fame, critics were quick to pick holes in the heartwarming story, suggesting it probably returned to the same spot to be fed every day.
