I love cats. I like to look at cute kitties, and read stories about extrordinary ones.

But Oscar the cat takes the cake. On I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER.com, I came across a spooky news story.

Read to be seriously creeped out.

I always knew that animals had talents denied to us humans, but this is really scary. I wouldn't want this cat coming into my room. :thumbsup:

I heard about this on T.V. at first it does sound scary but if you really think about it, it really isn't. I mean animals can tell there is going to be an earthquake before there is one, as well as if someone is going to have a stroke. It's more the matter of the question to ask yourself "Do I want to know that i'm going to die in a few hours?". Honestly, I would say yes I would want to know. I would much rather have a cat come and cuddle up on my lap than have a doctor come in the room and say your going to die today. :thumbsup:

It is odd but yes, animals seem to have an uncanny ability to sense so many things - and I too would want an Oscar to snuggle up beside me for comfort if I lay dying, especially in a hospital setting. If I get to pick my 'old folk's exit home', I'll have to insist it has a kitty or friendly dog that wanders it's corridors!
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Vultures also hover over the dying or dead.

This is not an unusual behavior for predatory animals. Macabre' maybe to humans - but not unusual in nature.

It just goes to show how little we (humans) know about the rest of our world.

How true, there are dogs that can smell certain cancers.

Incidentally, I wonder how the residents there feel about that cat just dropping by for a little attention knowing about its' special talent.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I sure as hell wouldn't feel comfortable getting a visit from Oscar. Maybe a better name for Oscar would be the "Grim Reaper"
In 1989 we had an Eartquake 150Klms from here.15 mins before the Earthquake struck, my 4 cats raced into the cupdoards and wouldn't come out.Thought at the time this was very strange.15 mins later the house shook violently,cracking many walls.
I am convinced animals have senses we dont.
When the 2004 Sunami struck India and Indonesia,why did the Elephants break loose and head for higher ground just before the Sunami struck? There are a lot of things we don't understand about Animals,as 'Koan Yorel' mentioned.

Those people that were made uncomfortable ,by the fact that oscar was crawling in with them asked it be removed. The cat would then sit outside your door and meow.
