Cat who detects Death and the question – What is Death?

A cat at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center knows when a patient in the center is about to die and curls up near him/her. The cat has been right in 25 cases so far. The cat is the best predictor of death in that center so far. (Nursing home cat can predict impending death)

It reminds me of what my mother had told me once, on when someone from a house is about to die, cats start "crying" in front of that house (even when the person who died was in the hospital) – it happened in the case of two deaths in our house. Of course, the cats used to "cry" many times in our neighborhood and I am not sure that someone really died everytime!

A US cat that is reportedly able to sense when a nursing home’s residents are about to die is baffling doctors.

Oscar has a habit of curling up next to patients at the home in Providence, Rhode Island, in their final hours.

According to the author of a study in the New England Journal of Medicine, the two-year-old cat has been observed to be correct in 25 cases so far.

Staff now alert the families of residents when he sits down next to their ailing loved one.

"He doesn’t make many mistakes. He seems to understand when patients are about to die," David Dosa, a professor at Brown University who carried out the research, told the Associated Press news agency.

It is clearly know that many animals – including cats – are known to predict many things including earthquakes. In fact, in Japan Catfish is supposed to be the best predictor of earthquakes. Basically, some kind of waves (ultra-sonic or electro-magnetic) are detected by the animals which come through when an earthquake strike.

So, its not some "super-natural" thing that happens.. but some scientific detection of waves that help the animals "know" about these things.

Hmm.. so far so good.. but then this Nursing Home incident begs the question – is Death a Wave Event? When death occurs – does a change in electromagnetic wave/ultrasonic wave occur BEFORE the final end actually happens? Which of course, loops back to the question if aura is a reality?

Vedic scientists & rishis have said that there is a physical body and an astral (or soul body) as have many modern schools of spirituality. So, is a change in that wave-centric body the trigger for the animals like this cat? Does that appear well in advance of the physical body’s death?

Taking this line of thought further, does death come due to physical causes? If the mark of "death" is already visible in the wave-body of a person, and because of which ..then the certainty of his/her physical death is establish, then is Death really a physical phenomenon or a wave phenomenon?

Because if it was indeed a physical phenomenon, the there is no question of a detecting any changes to any electromagnetic or ultra-sonic waves!? A person dies because of failure of an organ… period! Wave or no wave!

One thing that should be explored in this Cat-game in this Nursing Home is – What really is Death?
