Read in December, 2011

Tells the story of a rest home for dementia patients, in which Oscar the Cat provides an early warning system when a patient's death is near. Told by one of the doctors at the rest home, it was less about Oscar the Cat than I was expecting, actually, and much more about how we as a society deal with dementia in particular and death in general. Quite sobering at times (especially as my great aunt is in this exact situation), and moving at others.
