I found this bug snuggled down in a chair at the Trisun Nursing Home living room in Corpus Christi, Texas. It looks soft and furry enough to pet!

It is a strange looking bug, maybe it's a rodent?
If I found this bug in my house, I would pet it. Surely it wouldn't bite.

It was Ghost! I found her here, in the snack room, getting ready for a nice little visit. And maybe a snack.

There is more to this cat 'tale.'

Most of the time Ghost stays in the administrative area or up front in the living room. When she strays into the bedroom wings she bears watching.

Often she will go into a room of a very sick resident and climb up on the person's bed. She will snuggle up to the resident as if to comfort that person.

Very often that resident will die soon afterwards while Ghost is still there. Somehow she can tell that the person is about to die and just wants to be there in case, as if she knows she might be needed.

One person she comforted had an unexpected heart attack and died. Somehow she knew beforehand.

I wasn't told how she got her name but I have a few guesses.

Both Ghost and Tiger, a Manx cat, were taken in as strays that came to the nursing home to hang around.

Awww Ghost is so beautiful. I think cats have a sixth sense.

Take care xx

P.S. I think that I may be having a voting competion in the very near future. Be on the look out.
Hi Jim I think your June bug is purrrrrrrfect.
This is strange, because just last weekend a nurse told me a similar story of a cat in a nursing home (in Illinois) where she'd worked previously. Does that give you the shivvers?
BM, please don't involve me in a voting competion. I vote, I don't get involved--anymore.
Brrr! [here in the 78 degree weather]
That is neat that they allow them in the nursing home! Pretty cat and I'm sure that he does bring comfort to some of the patient's that are still able to enjoy them.
What a great story! thank for sharing your june bug pictures with us.

Jim.... This used to be a black cat I'm thinking. It must of fallen into a flour bin.
I really don't believe in ghosts but if ghost it is, it surely is a beauty!!...From Terry
Oh Terry, you forgot?
I believe in ONE Ghost for sure, and He is Holy!
Hi Jim ~~ Interesting story of the cat
Ghost and it is nice they allow it to visit with the patients. Not sure I would want a visit in the bedroom!!
Thanks for your visit and I had googled info ablout my kidney stone
and I think it should be OK.
Take care, Cheers, Merle.
