Nursing-home worker Morgan (guest star Judy Greer) fakes sick to get House's attention after the home’s pet cat sleeps next to her. It seems that the cat only pays a visit to people if they are about to die and does so with alarming accuracy. While House dismisses Morgan as a nut job, he is intrigued by her theory on the kiss-of-death cat, and sets out to disprove it.
When Morgan falls seriously ill, he and the team are forced to get to the bottom of both mysteries. Meanwhile, Taub struggles with his finances and reconnects with an old high school friend at the clinic whose business successes present Taub with an entrepreneurial opportunity he had not previously considered.
This is a reference to the early James Bond series, in particular Goldfinger, in which villain Auric Goldfinger uses the same line. The cat is an allusion to Ernst Stavro Blofeld a.k.a. Number One, the mysterious leader of SPECTRE and James Bond's nemesis, who was unseen in the early films but would be identified by the white cat that would sit in his lap while he spoke to underlings. Blofeld/Number One first appeared in From Russia with Love.
