THE GRIM REA-PURRRRRRRR.

I'm sure you all heard this past week about Oscar, the cat that can predict the death of patients at a certain nursing home:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Oscar the cat seems to have an uncanny knack for predicting when nursing home patients are going to die, by curling up next to them during their final hours. His accuracy, observed in 25 cases, has led the staff to call family members once he has chosen someone. It usually means they have less than four hours to live.
-
Yeah, not the kind of kitty you'd want near ya, let alone going into yer room huh? He's generally antisocial, unless the person is about to die, which is when he decides to crawl into their beds and snuggle next to them. EEK!

Is this tasteless, or just downright hilarious? My friend sent me this, and I could not stop laffing:

Creepy. But it gives me a damn good idea for a movie, "Death Kitty." Of course, this is from the guy who made KITTY KILLERS....

Disturbing. But cool. But creepy. But amazing...but odd. But powerful. Oh I don't know, it's a psychic cat. I want a sandwich.

This cat is just freaky ! Just imagine for religious people... soon they're gonna call a Priest and have a remake of the Exorcist in the house ! :D

I think thats an awesome little cat! I would say a very compassionate cat too, he just doesn't want the person to be alone when they pass on...


Or maybe takes their remaining life force when they are weak? ;) And that gif was strangely funny.

It's kind of funny but kind of touching. I think a lot of our domesticated animals "See" what we don't.

I love my cat, but that's one skill I hope he never picks up.

Oh, keep the cute little kitty away from me. How creepy. I do not think I'd want that much information at this point. Although, if I were in a nursing home maybe I would welcome his company.
