When Oscar the cat curls up on someone's bed, its time to call their loved ones and light up the Vacancy sign. The nursing home staff adopted the cat as a kitten and she made the rounds with them. After six months they noticed that whenever she sat near someone they died within a few hours. Dogs and cats are known to be able to smell deceases in humans.

Implications - However, a recent discovery revealed that Oscar in fact enjoyed the heat generated by these individuals right before they died. It may not be that Oscar could predict death, but more so that he enjoyed warming up at all hours of the day. It's still interesting to think that this little kitty had psychic powers!
