I just read an amazing story about a cat in a Nursing Home in the USA that can predict the death of residents. The cat, Oscar, who isn't even very social, seems to have a sixth sense. He has 'predicted' more than 25 deaths in the Nursing Home by seeking the company of those near the end of life. It has come to a point where health staff will call the patient's relatives when Oscar is found sitting on their beds.
I find this fascinating and I will soon be writing an article on Pet Therapy. I would like to hear other people's experience on this subject.
Read the full article on Oscar on the link below and don't forget to listen to the 2 minutes audio. Very interesting! http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/07/26/1989518.htm
