Meow…. Uh Oh!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Aditya Sengupta @ 8:20 am

Here is a story that has caught everyone’s attention. Oscar, the cat that lives in the Rhode Island nursing home, apparently has the knack of predicting the death of patients there by curling up next to them. The staff start calling family when this happens, because the patient usually dies within hours.

This story has become quite popular in the last few days. Reuters, CNN, CBC and Yahoo News have all covered it. Darren Barefoot thinks the cat is knocking off patients when no one is looking. Ze Frank has an interesting title to the rather frank (pun intended) entry on his blog. What’s more, even the New England Journal of Medicine and WebMD have covered the story.
