OP, Best story of the day.

Reminds me of the old wives tale about cats stealing the breath out of crib-death babies.  So the reality is probably that the cats just new when the babies would die.

My sister had a himalayan cat.  She could hit a certain pitch in her voice (on purpose), like upstairs, for just a second or two (not even loud), and the (female) cat would come running up from downstairs - like, the cat was way far away.  There are probably things about cats that we don't know about.

Similar to what you described, when my daughter cried when she was a baby, my cat would go running to her, frantically meowing. She hasn't done that for either of my sons.

Huh.  Maybe this is why cat's are supposed to be associated with witchcraft -- hanging out on deathbeds.

When in reality they were just concerned.

How do you know the cat is concerned? It seems just as possible that they're getting ready for some fresh kill for dinner.

Live with a cat for a while.  They look after their people.

I have a 15 year old cat that I've had since it was a kitten.

Sorry, yeah... the picture is just the one from the Reuters story.  The caption is

I IZ IN UR NURSING HOME, WAITING 4 UR LIFE FORCES

It's not that funny...

The "I IZ" seems extraneous

I couldn't decide which wording to use, there's a wide range:

>>Live with a cat for a while.  They look after their people.

agreed.  though i think there's a strong element of self-interest involved...

Sure.  But enlightened self-interest.

Heh... I keep picturing a sort of Walter Matheu/Jack Lemmon/Grumpy Old Man prank where one keeps tucking catnip under the mattress of the other.
