Oscar the Cat

Making Rounds with OscarAnimals have instincts we humans would love to possess.  Some can sense earthquakes before they occur.  Others can find their way home from thousands of miles away.  And then there’s Oscar the cat.  He lives at a nursing home in Rhode Island, and he senses when the end of life is near for a resident.  In their last hours he curls up on the bed and provides comfort and companionship.  Read about him in Making Rounds with Oscar by David Dosa.
