NEWS FLASH – The Grim Reaper is a cat! (and his name is Oscar)

July 26, 2007

That’s right folks. And apparently he’s operating out of Providence, Rhode Island. A nursing and rehabilitation center to be specific. Turns out that 2-year-old Oscar has an uncanny ability to know when a patient is in the final hours. Usually about two to four hours before, Oscar will come into the room, hop onto the bed, curl up, and stay there. So far, he has been right over twenty-five times. He is so good, in fact, that doctors and hospital staff will use this time to notify family and make arrangements. He even has an article in The New England Journal of Medicine. Sleep tight. Is it getting cold in here? Read the story.
