This is the incredible story of Oscar, an otherwise ordinary cat with an almost psychic sensitivity to human beings. As the resident cat of Steere House, an old people's nursing home, he knows before anyone else when people are at the end of their lives. His presence at a patient's bedside is an almost absolute indicator of their impending death, and allows staff members to notify families that the end is near. Oscar is a wonder to the doctors and nurses; he provides companionship to those who would otherwise be alone, an he gives comfort where others have failed.

The tale of an extraordinary cat who gives comfort to dying humans and their relatives in a care home. It doesn't surprise me as I have had three pet cats in my lifetime, the last of which lived to be 18 years old, a good age for a cat, and she always knew when I was down in the dumps or feeling unwell. This is quite a common thing between cats and their owners but for a cat to give service to a number of different people in different beds over the years who were not his owner is truly amazing.
