Harbinger of Death

This is not the kind of cat I would want as a pet.

 

Oscar the cat seems to have an uncanny knack for predicting when nursing home patients are going to die, by curling up next to them during their final hours. His accuracy, observed in 25 cases, has led the staff to call family members once he has chosen someone. It usually means the patient has less than four hours to live.

 

When death comes calling, so does Oscar the cat

 

On a completely unrelated note, I had a dog named Oscar when I was growing up. I miss that dog.
