An otherwise ordinary cat he'd sooner give you his back than curl up on your lap Oscar has the uncanny ability to predict when people are about to die. Adopted by staff members at Steere House nursing home when he was a kitten, the three-year-old tabby has presided over the deaths of more than twenty-five nursing home residents thus far. His mere presence at the bedside is viewed by physicians and nursing-home staff as an almost absolute indicator of impending death, considered a blessing because it allows staff members to notify families that the end is near and because he provides companionship to those who would otherwise have died alone. Heartfelt, inspiring, and sometimes even funny, Making the Rounds with Oscar allows listeners into a world that is often misunderstood and rarely seen from the outside.
