Right before my beloved cat Loomis died, she gave me a message.
I woke up one morning in bed to find her curled up on my tummy. She had never done this before. Usually she slept at the bottom of my bed, or at the side of me. Initially I was startled to find her there. As she woke up, she turned her face towards me and stared deeply into my eyes. She was telling me something but I didn’t know what it was.
Soon afterwards, I took her to the vet because she had gone off her food. As I sat drinking my morning coffee on the kitchen sofa, she positioned herself directly infront of me on the kitchen floor, and quietly locked eyes with me. We sat in silence for several minutes while a transmission took place. The vet confirmed my worse fears – Loomis had a kidney tumour. We treated her as lovingly as we could, but she died.
A few weeks later, through a series of synchronistic events, I was diagnosed with a microscopic cancer recurrence. My doctor told me that I had an angel on my shoulder because it was unheard of for them to find recurrence at such an early and treatable stage.
I knew then that Loomis had saved my life.
Then I read about ‘Making The Rounds With Oscar’ by David Dosa. Oscar is a tabby who can sense when a patient is about to die. David Dosa, the nursing home doctor, was initially sceptical, but a series of spooky events convinced him that Oscar might really have special powers.
I know this to be true! Loomis was an extraordinary cat with an extraordinary gift.
