Death takes a holiday; cat fills in

Heard this story on the local all-news radio station this morning: a cat who can predict the death of patients in a Providence (ironic location), RI nursing home.

Seems “Oscar” has been accurate in 25 cases, most of whom, according to the story:

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. Most families are grateful for the advanced warning, although one wanted Oscar out of the room while a family member died. When Oscar is put outside, he paces and meows his displeasure.

Can you imagine the reaction is Oscar was a black cat?
