From the Publisher
Annotation David Dosa, M.D., a Rhode Island geriatrician, was no great cat lover until he encountered Oscar. Oscar, the cat in residence at a nursing home in Providence, seeks out dying patients and spends time with them and their families as a quietly warm, comforting presence. First skeptical of what he heard about Oscar, Dosa eventually became impressed enough with his skills to write about him in the New England Journal of Medicine. This delightful, compassionate, and amazing book, an expansion of the article, is the heartwarming story of a truly extraordinary animal.
Editors Note Shares the author's experiences of working with the elderly and the story of a unique nursing-home cat whose uncanny, apparently precognitive vigils at the sides of residents who are about to die has enabled staffers to administer patient care and notice to loved ones.
