Elderly patients have an unwanted visitor named Oscar. Oscar is a cat. Patients know that if Oscar visits    bed, they will soon die.    accuracy is frightening... Oscar has already predicted over 50 deaths!

Oscar is attracted only to patients who are close to death. In    book, Dr. David Dosa discusses reasons why he thinks Oscar visits dying patients. One reason may be that patients who are dying have more activity in    bedrooms.

Could the explanation simply be that Oscar is simply a cute and loveable serial killer bringing death wherever he goes?
