Oscar – the LOLcat of death

Posted on March 20, 2008. Filed under: bizarre | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This is Oscar. He was adoped by the staff of a nursing home in Rhode Island.

He lives in the dementia department. He takes his rounds around the ward, and strangely, an hour or so before a patient dies, Oscar seems to sense it.

He climbs up on the bed, and cuddles up next to the patient. He does not leave till the patient has passed away – which is always within one hour.

He is so predictable that he never makes a mistake.

The staff starts calling up the family of the patient when they see Oscar on anyone’s bed. Sure thing that he or she is going to die soon.

And now presenting, Oscar the LOLCat!
