    The story was partly inspired by Oscar, a therapy cat who is able to predict the deaths of terminally ill patients; says King, "I thought to myself: ‘I want to write a story about that.’ And then I made the connection with Danny Torrance as an adult, working in a hospice. I thought: ‘That’s it. I’m gonna write this book.' The cat had to be there. It always takes two things for me to get going. It’s like the cat was the transmission and Danny was the motor."

    When my uncle was at death's door his cat jumped up on his bed and did heart-rending MEW. What hidden abilities have these animals?
    What abilities were lost by people?

    Or do we learn to ignore or distrust them? Ever told a child you weren't upset when you were because it was an adult problem or something you didn't want to discuss with them? etc etc
