    Details

    ITEM#: 12957355

    Dr. David Dosa is a geriatrician at Rhode Island Hospital and an assistant professor of medicine at the Warrern Alpert Medical School of Brown University, both in Providence.

    A remarkable cat. A life-changing story.

    Making Rounds with Oscar: The Extraordinary Gift of an Ordinary Cat is the story of a doctor who, at first, doesn’t always listen; of the patients he serves; of their caregivers; and, most importantly, of a cat who teaches by example, embracing moments of life that so many of us shy away from.

    “Oscar has much to teach us about empathy and courage. I couldn’t put it down.”

    —Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants

    “This book is a must-read. Truly, this is a story that needs to be told.”

    • Great book, quick read

      I had heard about Oscar and wondered how they could write an entire book on him! This book is especially wonderful in helping you understand and empathize with caretakers of ailing family members and/or friends. I would especially recommend the book as a gift to those who have family members or friends with alzheimers as it seems to provide a wonderful understanding of what to expect, along with some consolation and reassurance that others are experiencing the same emotions as they are taking care of loved ones who are "unlearning" life during this awful disease. I am not a caretaker nor do I know anyone who has alzheimers. However, I was fully engaged in the book which completely engrosses you in the lives of various families and how they and their loved ones were able to better cope with death and dying through the loving companionship of Oscar.
