I selflessly rescued an abandoned cat during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Speaking of Tuna,

I couldn't reach to a vet but some pet owners certainly found that price tag excessive (though, most of them are Turkish so couple of people also complained about vet prices in here).

Not helpful at all, I know. Sorry about that.


I forgot to update!

So I talked with the vet about it and there's a few options. It might be possible to do the operation without a CT scan which would reduce the costs by about 1, 1.2k. There is also the option of just pulling the polyp even though it's behind her eardrum. The vet was reluctant to do that as an easy fix unless it was necessary as it has a high chance of coming back and is not something she would normally do due to the delicate nature of eardrums. If she did pull it, it could buy me some time, enough to get her insured for pre existing conditions, which then would obviously cover the eventual surgery should it be needed. She has to go 3 months without treatment for her ear for that to work.

But 3k is high. I also really love this vet. She's sedated tuna 3 times for ear investigation, gave me medicine for free and only charged me for one sedation. Shes been a part of my time with Tuna since the beginning and I feel confident she wouldn't be taking me for a ride.

UK cats are considered free agents, who may choose to live under a particular roof but this indicates no liability on the part of the home owners.


I went to the gym for the 1st time since March today. It was all very sensibly set up, with limits on the numbers who could enter, sanitizer everywhere and staff keeping an eye on things. I thought I'd been sensible and cautious myself, but I'm aching in all kinds of areas now. A set of dumb bells at home is no substitute for a properly-equipped gym.

The virus is airborne though dude, doesn't matter if they obsessively clean the equipment if you're in the path of a cloud of roni bro breath. And that stuff spreads around everywhere, specially when people are exerting themselves without masks on.

I went to Shoreham and swam with my shorts along with my fellow bald, tattooed lobster people. Ngl, it felt amazing, come @ me bruv.

I've taken two flights in the last few weeks and the airports were basically empty and the planes less than 1/3 full, with 100% adherence to distancing and mask wearing etc. Meanwhile on the trains I took in the UK I had one woman who sounded like she was coughing up a lung while wearing a mask around her chin and another guy get on fresh from football practice with absolutely no clothing, mask or otherwise, on above his waist. Airports are some of the safest places to be in public right now.

Hmmm. Thanks thats interesting, its really difficult to know whats what. I mean to be honest theyre on holiday with their mates, so they dont need to do it at all rather than it just being preferable to a train. In a big shared rented house. Youre tying your fate to all these other people, have they done the right thing? (whatever that is?) And that diagram where people exponentially pass it on. But whatever, I'm so tired of judging friends and family on it all.

Cornwall is loving chaos at the moment, I want to go to the beach and do normal daily things but I can't because the whole county is full of idiots on their staycations with their disease ridden sweaty carcasses.

One of the nail salons locally has just had to close because a woman booked in to have her nails done and an hour after the appointment messages telling the technician that she had tested positive for covid two days earlier but needed to get her nails done while down here on holiday.

like seriously the police loving suck. there's a bike thief who's been going round threatening people with a knife and they've done poo poo all, they lock him up for a night then let him out and he's back to the same thing the next day BUT they're paying like 20 police officers to enforce some insane one-way system (only for bikes) on a shared path here today.

like telling people to get off their bikes if you're coming from one direction because today the bike lane is one way today even though it wasn't yesterday???? wtf. why are police doing that and why so many officers?

Regarding the police, I'm pretty lucky but i also have cause to take their name in vain this week as they have neglected to charge a person in a domestic abuse case relevant to me that really just needs to happen.

In terms of doing the right thing, I havent been to the pub since lockdown began, this doesnt make me any good particularly but its an easy one to do when you're kind of being dragged in different directions by people. I don't mean to judge anyone elses situation as you all know your own poo poo and frankly that all up to each of you.

And I'm sure I have it relatively easy.

I just don't understand the logic behind booking and attending an appointment knowing you had tested positive for covid, yet feeling the guilt or obligation to inform the salon afterwards that they should isolate because of this.

Fair enough, mate. Sorry to touch a nerve.

I've been down the pub a few times with Cromwell, my dog. I did a comprehensive health and safety assessment for both of us and my family.

Despite spending all of March and April and May working as a nurse assisting in intubations of Covid patients and working in ITU, I failed to get ill. Many of my work mates did. I spent a lot of time with them not wearing PPE. We worked 60 hour weeks together, not wearing facemasks when we were not looking after patients. We shared very small coffee rooms and kitchens.

Going down the pub is not scary for me. If I was going to catch Covid, it would have happened by now.
