“When My Nana Was Ready, So Was Baby,” Cat Passes Away A Day After Her Owner

An elderly woman lays in a bed and looks up at her black cat who lays by her side.

The connection between a human and their pet is so incredibly special. In a TikTok, a young woman shares the heartbreakingly beautiful story of her nana and the cat who never left her side. “They were besties,” as the woman describes them. No matter where Nana went, her sweet cat, who she named Baby, was sure to be there as well.

Then, Nana became ill. She stopped eating and, soon after, so did Baby. Although it seems that Nana was no longer able to go out, Baby didn’t mind staying by her side still. In fact, she was with her to the very end. Once Nana passed away, it seems that Baby knew that it was okay for her to go, too. So, the next day, this sweet cat passed away.

“The world doesn’t prepare you for losses like these,” the captions reads. “… You might not be here but your heart and your soul will always live through my voice. I will never stop talking about you.”

Nana’s Bond With Her Cat is Heartbreakingly Beautiful

Although these losses are incredibly heartbreaking, Nana’s family can find comfort in knowing just how much these two meant to one another. Plus, they were there for each other till the end. Now, there ashes will be side by side as well.

“In Mexican culture they’ve always said that the pets we loved and care for walk us across,” someone shares in the comments, “and I’m sure Baby didn’t want Nana to cross alone.”

“They loved each other so much,” another adds. “May they rest in peace together forever.”
