Oscar the Death Cat, who can predicting the deaths of residents at a Rhode Island Nursing home has canine competition.

Scamp, a Schnauze who lives at The Pines nursing home in Ohio – where his owner, a staff member, claims he has been present for the death of virtually every patient for the past three years. That's around forty deaths, twice as many as Oscar the cat's kill count of 20.

Deirdre Huth, Scamps owner, says that the doomhound always turns up in the hours before one of the residents dies, waiting patiently in their room until they pass away.

'He has either barked or he'll pace around the room. The only time he barks is when he's trying to tell us something's wrong,' she said.
