Mews and Nips: Cemetery Cat Comforted Mourners for 20 Years


Barney, an orange tabby cat who lived to the ripe old age of 20, was laid to rest at the same cemetery in Guernsey in the UK where he spent most of his life comforting mourners. Barney brightened up the lives of grieving loved ones during funerals and grave site visits. Real Find shared heart touching tributes to this special cat from visitors to the cemetery. Rest in peace, sweet Barney.
