Oh No, He's Looking Right At You!
Say hello to Oscar. He lives in a Providence, Rhode Island nursing home. In most respects, he's an ordinary cat. Except for one thing . . . Oscar knows when people are about to die.
In the two years since Oscar was adopted by the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, he has inexplicably appeared at the deathbeds of more than 25 patients. He seems to know--even when the doctors don't--that a person is standing at death's door.
Read more about Oscar in the Boston Globe. But be forewarned: The story is seriously creepy.
