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:

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

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.

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

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.
