The Kitty Grim Reaper

It appears that a cat in Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island brings death with its cuddles.

The cat, named Oscar, is normally standoffish, but will cuddle up to people in the last 4 hours or so before death.

Probably something to do with the cat sensing or smelling something that we can't.

Then again it's a cat, so maybe it just brings death along.
Thomas Graves, a feline expert and chief of small animal medicine at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, described Oscar's actions as "such a cat thing to do", but admitted: "Those things are hard to study. I think probably dogs and cats can sense things we can't."

Dr Teno concluded: "I don't think this is a psychic cat. I think there's probably a biochemical explanation.

Not sure if the last one is a death cat, but if looks could kill...
