Cat plays furry Grim Reaper at nursing home
or, as I would headline the article:
Killer Cat Gets Away With Murder Spree
In short, in a Rhode Island nursing home, there's a cat named Oscar who has an uncanny ability to "predict" when someone's going to die. 25 times, at last count, this "gifted" cat has curled up next to patients who then kicked the bucket mere hours later.
No one finds this the least bit fishy?
I mean... if a nurse was around 25 patients who died within hours of being with her... wouldn't that be cause for an investigation??
“He doesn’t make too many mistakes. He seems to understand when patients are about to die,” said Dr. David Dosa.Of course he does.
Dosa said Oscar seems to take his work seriously and is generally aloof. “This is not a cat that’s friendly to people,” he said.They said the same thing about Ed Gein.
Doctors say most of the people who get a visit from the sweet-faced, gray-and-white cat are so ill they probably don’t know he’s there, so patients aren’t aware he’s a harbinger of death.Well... that's comforting to know.
Oscar recently received a wall plaque publicly commending his “compassionate hospice care.”Wake up people!! You've got a seriously twisted kitty on your hands! Where's Agent Starling's dog when you need her?
One thing's for sure, I'm not sending anyone I know to that nursing home.
