Cat predicts 50 deaths at a hospital

Oscar was an adopted cat that grew up at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

Hospital staff noticed that Oscar, just like the doctors and nurses, would make his own rounds around the wards.

Oscar would sniff and observe patients, then curl up to sleep with certain ones.

What surprised the staff was that the patients with whom Oscar would sleep would generally die within two to four hours after Oscar’s arrival.

Oscar’s accuracy (currently standing at more than 50 reported instances) led the staff to institute a new and unusual protocol – once he is discovered sleeping with a patient, staff will call family members to notify them of the patient’s {expected} impending death.
