Your Cat Knows When You'll Die

An interesting article in the Washington Post shares a story of a cat which seemingly knows when patients in a Hospice will die. A quick read definitely worth the time.

My take is that it's far more than pheromones the cat is sensing. I believe that Oscar the cat is connecting to an area of its conscious which allows it to sense into the future.

Animals are not as distracted by the division between the conscious, and the subconscious as humans must be in order to survive.

While I don't believe that Oscar "knows" in any human sense, "This person is about to die", I do believe that his behavior is illustrative of a deeper knowledge that is available.

People have been pushing aside this alternative means of knowledge in favor of self talk and logic for a long time now.
