When a nursing home doctor heard that the resident Oscar could sense when a patient was about to die, he was sceptical. But a series of spooky events convinced him the cat might really have special powers.
When Oscar was about six months old the staff noticed that he would curl up to sleep with patients who were about to die.
So far he has accurately predicted about 50 deaths.
According to Dr. David Dosa, Oscar appears able to predict the impending death of terminally ill patients by choosing to nap next to people a few hours before they die. Hypotheses for this ability include that Oscar is picking up on the lack of movement in such patients or that he can smell biochemicals released by dying cells.
Now that’s real creepy! Imagine you’re sleeping on your bed and this cat comes out of nowhere and curls beside you..
