Oscar the cat seems to know when nursing home patients are going to die, by curling up next to them during their final hours at the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Apparently his track record consists already of 25 predictions. The nursing center is already calling family members, when Oscar curls up next to a patient. Usually the patients only live four more hours after Oscar joins them.
I like cats, this one seems to be pretty amazing. Oscar has something superstitious in his eyes.
