    A US cat that is reportedly able to sense when a nursing home's residents are about to die is baffling doctors.

    Oscar has a habit of curling up next to patients at the home in Providence, Rhode Island, in their final hours.

    According to the author of a study in the New England Journal of Medicine, the two-year-old cat has been observed to be correct in 25 cases so far.

    That is very cool. It reminds me of the girl in Russia who can tell someone in pain about all of their problems, because she says that she can feel their exact pain within her own body when she touches the patient.

    hehe it would be funny if all the patients died cause they were allergic to the cat

    :lol: I love these dumb-ass threads...

    Maybe the reason people are dying is BECAUSE OF THE CAT! :yikes:

    Cause and effect?!? :tard:

    If I was one of those old folks I'd say "why take the chance" - "goodnight kittie! RIP"...

    I hope the patients don't know...they'd be scared of the cat.

  15. i dont find this odd at all. infact animals have a keen sense when it comes to their owners or people who care for them. they also have feelings too and know when something is wrong.

    when i leave chuchu he gets upset and will cry all day until i come home. if i dont come home within the day, he thinks something is wrong and wont leave my side of the bed. esp when im sick or something too. he will sleep near me if i have a flu cold and will growl if anyone moves him away from me.

    my brothers cat jerry used to do the same thing. animals are very smart
