Nurse Morgan West is convinced she's dying because 'prophetic' cat Debby from the senior home where she works came to her. House assumes she's a malingerer, but she soon gets symptoms one can't fake. Even a coma patient who attracted the cat later dies. House taunts Kutter's mild superstitious practices. Taub hopes for a better job with college mate Neil Zane in the medical supplies business.

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

Maybe that can make her as happy as you.
