Now THAT’s an Accurate Cat Scan

with 3 comments

I don’t know whether to chuckle at this story or not. (Okay, yes I do. I chuckled. I can just picture the looks on the patients’ faces when Oscar jumps on their bed to “cuddle.” My favorite part was the author of the story calling him “the furry grim reaper.”)

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 they have less than four hours to live. More of story
