Jeremy was a perfectly normal squirrel, except that he had one peculiar power: he could see when people were about to die. This showed itself as a bright halo around their hands, and a darkness in the corners of their eyes. However, being a squirrel, his brain didn't extend to metaphysics. He just perceived himself as a normal, healthy rodent. So he just assumed it was normal that his cute, furry friends started mysteriously glowing around the limbs before taking, say, a sudden air journey courtesy of Hungry Buzzard Airways, or being run over by a golf cart with things on its mind.
