The extraordinary – and true – story of a cat with a remarkable gift

In the summer of 2007 Oscar the cat made headlines around the world. Why? Because he knows when the patients in the Rhode Island hospice where he lives are going to die. Oscar curls up on their beds, keeps them company and enables the families to be with their loved ones at the end. Dr David Dosa's job is to respond to people's medical needs, treat them for their ailments and communicate with their families. Oscar takes care of the rest. He is a steady companion and, because of him, patients don't die alone. Can a cat really predict death? Is he smelling something or responding to behavioural clues? Is he helping guide souls to heaven? Oscar's warm and profound story is heartfelt, sometimes even funny, but always inspiring.

En 2007 la historia de un gato muy especial dio la vuelta al mundo. Oscar, uno de los gatos que vive en una residencia geriátrica en Rhode Island cerca de Nueva York posee un don increíble: es capaz de sentir cuándo un paciente está a punto de fallecer. Este gato tan especial acompaña al enfermo en su tránsito al otro mundo, aportándole un discreto pero agradecido consuelo. A raíz de la gran repercusión de ese caso, el doctor David Dosa, alguien no especialmente amante de los felinos y más bien escéptico de los dones extraordinarios, decide relatar la historia de Oscar pero también la de su trabajo; un oficio duro que consiste en hacer lo menos penoso posible los últimos años de vida de los pacientes, pero que también resulta tremendamente gratificante. Son muchas las historias conmovedoras, tristes y hermosas que al doctor Dosa le toca vivir en su quehacer cotidiano y que relata, de forma muy humana y con una gran sensibilidad.
