Oscar the cat has an uncanny ability to predict when people are about to die.
The nursing home cat, seen here at the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island, is the subject of a new book called "Making Rounds With Oscar: The Extraordinary Gift of an Ordinary Cat."
Dr. David Dosa, the book's author, says that Oscar has correctly predicted 50 deaths in a five year period. Oscar previously made it into the New England Journal of Medicine after the cat curled up next to 25 patients right before they died
. The hospital even gave him a plaque for providing compassionate hospice care. (Stew Milne/AP Photo)
