I see dead people! Not really, however, cats have been known to have that "sixth sense" when it comes to death.
For a cat named Oscar in Providence RI, he was able to predict the death of a patient by appearing in their rooms hours before their death to notify staff as family members of their loved ones passing.
Oscar jumps on the bed and purrs and comforts the patient and often sits with the family and or substitutes for family that either may not be in existence or on their way.
How does Oscar know that a patient is near passing? Oscar may be picking up specific odors surrounding death that the human nose may not be able to pick up. There are certain chemicals that are released when someone is near passing.
