Crea­ture Com­fort

Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - PARADE PICKS -

ome cats are more in­tu­itive than oth­ers, un­nerv­ingly so. Os­car, who lives in a Rhode Is­land nurs­ing home, has a sixth sense and a sin­gu­lar vo­ca­tion. Know­ing when a pa­tient is near death, he keeps vigil un­til the end. A so­lace to res­i­dents, griev­ing fam­i­lies, and staff, the tabby found fame when Dr. David Dosa cel­e­brated him in a med­i­cal jour­nal in 2007. Now Dosa’s Mak­ing Rounds With Os­car lets us into his world and aims to in­spire open­ness about end-of-life care. Watch Os­car on video at Pa­­car
