A very special cat
 
I just saw this story which you folk may have heard of already. What incredible senses dogs and cats often have. I've heard of dogs staying with hurt or dead owners for days and resisting all efforts to move them. Such empathy:

Wow, I just read about this cat in the Boston Metro on the way to work this morning.

Call me a sicko, but I wonder how many people see that cat coming and scat it out of the room.:rofl:

Sorry--all I could imagine is all these people shooing the cat.

He's on the dementia ward, so most of the patients probably don't even realize there's a cat living in the hospice, which is kinda sad.

Ingrid LOL but Stiney is right..and I think so close to death most people are at relative peace.

I think this is beautiful - having some company, some real affection in the last few hours is a real gift.

Susan P. 07-26-2007 11:28 AM

I think so too willowangel..and I felt..glad..really glad..that this cat ensured these people were not alone. I'm sure many of them had a sense of a presence there and I am really touched by that potential.

:angelgrin:Just more proof for my belief that kitties are angels.
