You shouldn't be too worried if Oscar the cat crosses your path. But if he curls up beside you, you may want to call your loved ones.
Oscar has the uncanny ability to predict when nursing home patients are within hours of death.
The two-year-old cat has curled up beside 25 people at a Rhode Island nursing home in their final hours.
A doctor at the home says the feline isn't one to make too many mistakes. Oscar has proven so accurate, he has gotten his own wall plaque and an essay coming out in tomorrow's New England Journal of Medicine.
The furry grim reaper grew up in a third-floor dementia unit.
The staff there is so convinced of his ability, they will call family members once he has chosen someone.
