I always knew cats were weird...

...so I better look out when next time Rudy sits on my chest...

Weiiiird...but did we not hear stories like this through the centuries, resulting in the death of a countless number of cats as servants of Death? This one, at least is doing a service to the family members of those whose final hours are near.

Scientist that I am...makes me wonder if cats can truly "smell" death since we give off particular chemical compounds when the body is in distress that we can't smell but can be detected with instruments. So maybe this is just a chemical reaction and the cat finds this smell appealing.
So that's the scientific answer, but I also would like to believe that it's done for more metaphysical reasons because the cat brings comfort to the dying because it wants to rather than a selfish need to satisfy some biochemical reaction.

Good points Alex; the truth probably is between the two somehow...as usual.
