Oscar the cat has an unusual talent (if you want to call it that). He knows when someone is going to die, at least that is the report given in a medical journal. Oscar is now has been able to "predict" the deaths of 25 people in a row. How does he do it? He will curl up next to them in bed, usually within 2 hours of them dying. According to reports, Oscar is not a friendly cat, but whenever someone is about to die, he gets right up there with them and sits it out.

-One thought is that usually they place warm blankets on patients who are dying and this attracts the cat. Do you think this is a more plausible explanation?
-If you were a family of the patient and you got a call stating that the cat has curled, what would your thoughts be given the cat has gotten the last 25 "curls" correct?
