    I saw that yesterday- amazing. He seems to KNOW who is going to meet the grim reaper next! I think animals can have amazing extrasensory capabilities. What about the cat in ancient Egypt and Greece.

    from New England Journal of Medicine:

    "Since he was adopted by staff members as a kitten, Oscar the Cat has had an uncanny ability to predict when residents are about to die. Thus far, he has presided over the deaths of more than 25 residents on the third floor of Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island. His mere presence at the bedside is viewed by physicians and nursing home staff as an almost absolute indicator of impending death, allowing staff members to adequately notify families. Oscar has also provided companionship to those who would otherwise have died alone. For his work, he is highly regarded by the physicians and staff at Steere House and by the families of the residents whom he serves
    ."

    Its Hospice Cat...

    For some reason I think this utterly acceptable.

    But what the heck does it do when no one is near death....wander around and cause everyone to be in panic as it strolls in your door?
