Trivia

The idea of a cat predicting death is probably based on the real story of Oscar, a cat (born in 2005) living in Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island. Oscar has predicted the death of at least 25 people, never making a mistake. He follows the procedure described in House, paying a visit to a patient who is within hours of death and sleeping on the patient's bed. See more »

Cat fun
24 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nurse tells House that a cat has predicted her death, and wants House to do something about it. A great premise, and a great comic episode, as House keeps messing with the cat in question while trying to decide what to do about the anxious nurse. Apparently, the cat can predict who will die, and spooks everyone when it predicts the death of one of the coma patients, who promptly ups and dies. The cat "predicts" deaths by laying down next to the "victim." Now, this next part is a bit forced, but it turns out Kutner is superstitious. House begins doing things like spilling salt as he and Kutner sit at a table, propping a ladder near a doorway, and so on. It is sort of funny, but you can hear the scriptwriters' creaky gears turning dreaming up this bit. In the end, the cat -- which does some amazing stunts for a brainless animal -- wins House over. But watch the episode yourself to see how and why. The actress playing the terrified nurse is excellent, by the way.
