    Dog and cat's friendship continues after death
    It was a friendship that could inspire a Disney movie. Oscar the dog and his best friend, Arthur the cat, were inseparable in life.

    So, when 17-year-old moggy Arthur died, Oscar was left inconsolable. Their owners, Robert and Mavis Bell, buried Arthur in the garden.

    But Oscar's love for his friend would not die and during the night, he pulled the cat from his grave, carried him inside, laid him in the basket they used to share and gently cleaned him up.

    Which is one of those things that's heartwarming when an animal does it, but kind of creepy when a human does the same.

    Mr Bell found the pair curled up together in the basket. He said: 'Oscar had watched me bury Arthur. They had been inseparable.'

    Arthur is now buried in a secure grave in the garden at the Bells' home in Wigan and Oscar has a new playmate kitten called Limpet.

    'He's already very protective of her,' Mrs Bell said.

    Actually it's also kind of creepy when an animal does it...

    Uh, I'm with you on that. If I bury a cat, I'd like it to STAY buried!

    You know, though, if it was an inside dog, and had never actually seen any being die before, the concept of 'death' would have to be kind of puzzling and shocking. Going through that old dogs brain would be something like, "You mean, animals DIE??!"

    Of course, dogs aren't all that brilliant, what probably went through his mind is, "Hey, cats die. Who would'a guessed? Wow, sure glad I'm not a cat."
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Yeah, the word "heartwarming" wasn't what came to my mind, either.
