From this artsy rendition you would never guess anything out of the ordinary about this kitty. However Oscar the cat would beg to differ. Residents at a nursing home in Rhode Island would probably tremble at the sight of the cat curling up anywhere near them, as the little fellow seems to have an unerring ability to pick up on the scent of death. Whoever he cuddles up to will end up being worm food within a few hours. After each visitation, he would slink off with a self-satisfied air, leaving families to grieve over their dearly departed. His judgment is so accurate that the staff has taken to informing immediate family about the imminent loss as soon as Oscar makes an appearance beside any patient. Another reason why I hate cats.
