Oscar, go away!

I want to share with you this article I read last week.
"Oscar seems to have an uncanny knack for predicting when nursing home patients are going to die, by curling up next to them during their final hours. His accuracy, observed in 25 cases, has led the staff to call family members once he has chosen someone. It usually means they have less than four hours to live. He seems to understand when patients are about to die.
Doctors say most of the people who get a visit from the gray-and-white cat are so ill they probably don't know he's there, so patients aren't aware he's a harbinger of death."
Original Text
Do you think animals can predict people's death?

Probably before or when dying there are changes in the metabolism ¿why couldn´t they smell death?.. Patricia C.
