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 »

Goofs

In the scene where House and the team are looking outside for the cat, House fakes getting sick and takes a drink from the cup he's holding. He them spits the contents of the drink - cranberry juice - all over Dr. Kutner's shirt and right side of his lab coat. Right after, Dr. Kutner is shown with the juice on his shirt and on the left collar of his lab coat, the right side is pristine. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Lawrence Kutner: [House is holding a cat and smoking a cigar] What are you doing?
Dr. Gregory House: "No, Mr. Bond - I expect you to die."

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.
