Oscar, a cat with a scarily accurate ability to predict the impending death of patients, is getting a biopic reports McKnights.com.
The five-year-old Oscar has grown up in the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Rhode Island ever since he was a kitten. A year after his arrival, staff started noticing the cat would curl up with terminally ill patients a few hours before their death.
He became so consistent at it that he literally became an early warning signal for doctors and nurses who would notify family members and friends to come to the centre.
The film will be based on David Dosa’s best-selling nonfiction novel about his discovery of the cat’s ability and its impact on his own belief system.
