Cat Comforts Elderly People at Bedside When Sensing Death Is Near

“Sometimes the smallest creatures take up the most space in our hearts.”


Cat named Tom is a caretaker, volunteering at the Salem VA Medical Center in Virginia. He comforts resident veterans living in the community living center. Staff members believe that he has a sixth sense and knows when death is coming. The cat will sit inside a patient’s room then notifies their family members, by meow-ing, when they have passed.
