China’s cat Baidian’er that predicted the correct result of the match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Argentina at Russia 2018 World Cup is dead.
The cat picked Argentina ahead of Nigeria in the encounter which was their last Group D game, and the South Americans won the game 2-1.
Before the death of the cat, Baidian’er was said to have previously predicted correctly five World Cup games at Russia 2018 and the Super Eagles’ tie against Argentina was the last prediction.
The orange-furred tabby, named ”Baidian’er”, which means “white spot” in Chinese was a stray that prowled around the Palace Museum in Beijing’s Forbidden City.
According to NAN, the museum where the cat was kept said it fell ill before announcing its death on Monday sparking almost 10,000 comments on Weibo.
