A ten-year-old tabby cat named Oscar has become popular due to his uncanny ability to comfort patients in their dying days at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Rhode Islands. According to doctors at the healthcare facility, Oscar has predicted the deaths of more than hundred people. Oscar gives comfort to the dying. Is he a cat angel to each of them?



Oscar is such a precious kitty whose intuition has baffled scientists and doctors. Maybe he is a psychic that is tasked to help dying people and to bring comfort to them during their last hours?

Oscar’s supernatural ability was revealed by Dr. David Dosa, an assistant professor at Brown University. Dr. Dosa wrote an article in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2007 that explored Oscar’s rare gift. A book titled “Making Rounds with Oscar: The extraordinary gift of an ordinary cat” was published by Dosa who shared his experiences with Oscar.

The “miracle cat” spends his time pacing from room to room and cuddles up the patients who are in their final dying days. Dr. Dosa believes that a certain scent of “death” attracts Oscar to end of life patients. Staff at the facility sees the presence of Oscar as an absolute sign of impending death. This enables them to adequate the relatives of the dying patients.

Cats are popular for possessing nine lives due to their ability to recover when faced with a death situation. They are known for assisting and feeding each other. It has been observed that cats can smell the death of their fellow cats. They provide assistance to those cats that dying, to lick or keep the other warm.

Oscar’s behavior is his way of offering to terminally-ill patients what he would do other members of its pride. This might sound morbid for non-believers, but Oscar’s action is a kind and supportive gesture!

In 2013, Oscar had a serious allergic reaction and was treated at intensive care unit. He died for several seconds but recovered with the help vets. He became patient for a few months at the nursing home, regained his health, and resumed his role as Doctor Cat!
