Notorious ‘‘Death Cat’’ Refuses to Leave Obama Campaign Headquarters
duhprogressive.com ^ | 11/4/12

Posted on 11/04/2012 11:14:17 AM PST by Justaham

“He refuses to leave. When we force him away, he just comes back. It’s really been flipping us out…”

Such are the quivering words of a flush-faced Stacey Bingham, President Obama’s volunteer coordinator at his campaign headquarters in Washington D.C.

No, Ms. Bingham is not talking about Joe Biden. Nor is she speaking of the inevitable horde of creepy, overweight, middle-aged campaign volunteers who smell like a Beluga whale’s placenta that can be found at any campaign’s volunteer offices. Bingham is speaking of none other than Oscar the cat (a.k.a. “death cat,” the “grim purrer,” and “Dr. Catvorkian”), who gained fame in 2010 from his uncanny ability to detect who was about to die at a Rhode Island nursing home. Curling up next to unconscious geriatrics in ­­­­­­­­­­­Providence’s Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre, Oscar, a 9-pound ordinary American housecat, stayed with each patient in the hours before their death, becoming perhaps the furriest, cutest Grim Reaper to date. Nursing home doctors confirmed over 50 cases of Oscar accurately predicting patients’ deaths.

He could just be looking for some kitty litter to cover up whatever’s causing that awful smell. Just sayin’.

Did someone move him from Providence Rhode Island - or is that the name of a DC Home?

How did he get to the Campaign HQ?

We’ve been had - LOL it’s satire;)

***Adding to the creepiness, Oscar has also been spotted at other Obama campaign offices in several states, including Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. The creepy cat has even encountered the President himself during one of his routine stops/pep rallies at his campaign’s HQ in Richmond, Virginia.***

Always read the article!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't feel like reading deeper to see if this is sarcasm. Either way it is funny.

BTW, I have always suspected that this cat is just following instinct and waiting for an easy.. albeit very big, meal.

Did someone move him from Providence Rhode Island

I read that he had been found dead in a waste basket.....likely killed by some freaked out resident of the nursing home.

I loved this! Maybe Oscar the Death Cat was hanging out there because he’s really a Hank the Cat for Senate supporter.

Thank you for making my day. ;)

FYI, Oscar is a real cat. This story is a joke. Probably.

I googled but could find no report that he had died. He was 5 years’ old in 2007. Probably still at the Providence RI nursing home.

This article was satire;)

IIRC, someone wrote a satirical article saying that a nursing home resident had beaten Oscar to death with a bedpan. Naturally, some outfits reported it as legit.

Bummer, I thought it was for real. Anyhoo, I do remember my recently departed Whitey, she swatted the TV screen and hissed at it when Obama came on.

I’ve heard of the real cat.

This story is wishful thinking, but a girl can hope.

It’s funny, though.

I like that. That could go down in FR annals.

The Viking Kitty ping list holders might like it.
