Oscar the cat predicts patients' deaths

A cat has been acting as a death angel recently (and I think until now). Oscar (that the cat's name), will make a round in the hospital and usually will curling up next to them during their final hours.

The 2-year-old feline was adopted as a kitten and grew up in a third-floor dementia unit at the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. The facility treats people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and other illnesses.

After about six months, the staff noticed Oscar would make his own rounds, just like the doctors and nurses. He'd sniff and observe patients, then sit beside people who would wind up dying in a few hours.

Some people didn't like him but at lest he give the patient final moment with their loved ones.
