Heartbreaking photos show mother cat trying to revive kittens brutally killed in China

If you cannot imagine losing a loved one, just think about how this mother cat must help felt upon seeing the mutilated bodies of her kittens.

According to Shanghaiist, the two kittens had been found dead on the streets of Xi'an. One had been viciously stabbed in the stomach while the other was decapitated.

An elderly woman who took care of the strays in the neighbourhood saw the mother cat walking back forth, meowing constantly at her two dead kittens, licking them and trying to wake them back up.

As the woman buried the dead felines, the poor creature could only look on mournfully.
