The staff at Steere House nursing home in Rhode Island adopted a cute little kitten with attitude. He loved to stretch out in sunlight and chase his tail -- and consented to a cuddle when it suited him. Oscar was an ordinary cat, or so it seemed. It wasn't long before he created a stir. It seems Oscar possessed an extraordinary gift: he instinctively knew when the end of life was near. This is the story of Oscar, his patients, caregivers and one stubborn doctor who learned how to listen.
