An Insightful Read - Making Rounds with Oscar

Just a cute little kitten adopted by the staff and residents of the terminal dementia unit, Oscar develops "cattitude" and then a skill that can't be explained. The head nurse has seen Oscar in action.  Family members have seen Oscar in action. The physician has to overcome his skepticism to appreciate the "extraordinary gift of an ordinary cat." You too can discover the story of Oscar and the residents at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Rhode Island. Find the book at your local library, bookstore or online.
