A psychic cat which is believed to have supernatural power that predicted the Nigeria-Argentina match and also six world cup games is reportedly dead.
The cat which was fondly called “Baidian’er”, which means “white spot” in China. The orange-furred tabby could be seen roaming around the Palace Museum in Beijing.
He would be offered two bowls of food with the flags of the competing World cup stuck in the ground behind them.
Baidian’er correctly predicted the results of six World Cup games.
He achieved such fame that the Palace Museum even set up an account for him on China’s Weibo, a popular Twitter-like platform.
Unfortunately, Baidian’er’s correct prediction of an Argentine win against Nigeria turned out to be his last.
The museum said the cat fell ill and finally announced its death on Monday, sparking almost 10,000 comments on Weibo.
“Every time I go to the Forbidden City, I have to go see Baidian’er, take a photo, play for a while, see him sleep on the grass in the sun,” wrote one troubled user.
