I love cats so I was really fascinated by this book telling the true-life story of Oscar, one of the resident cats at an old people’s nursing home in America.
The book follows Dr David Dosa, one of the staff, as he realises that Oscar seems to have an uncanny knack for knowing when patients are about to die and making sure that he sits with them at the end of their lives. His behaviour is so accurate that the staff even rely on him for a second opinion on occasion.
The book also looks at the condition of dementia, which many of the patients suffer with. A fascinating story with some lovely moments which cat lovers – and even some people who don’t like cats – will really enjoy.
