2023.06.07 12:13 pearandamango Offering: English (UK, Native) Seeking: Norwegian (A2-ish, preferably Tromsø), French (B2, a bit rusty), German (B1, extremely rusty)
Hey! I'm pear (spice also works, 23X). Native English speaker with a fairly standard British English accent. Educated in French and German to A - Level (around B2, although my German is too rusty to still be considered that). I've been self-studying Norwegian for the better part of two years, and would love to have someone to speak to in either voice or text chats to hone my skills, especially as I'm hoping to move to Norway in 2024.
For French and German: I'd love to be able to talk to people in French again, having not visited France for a good few years, and it being somewhere else I would love to live. As for German, I am just, way too rusty, and would very much like to bring it back up to speed ^^'. My finacee's family comes from an area in the Black Forest, while I have only visited/been educated by people from near Hannover (so a big accent difference).
I have a degree in linguistics, so if you're looking for someone with a bit more of a formal background in grammar or language learning I can definitely help :)
Hobbies include: TTRPGs, video games, art, linguistics, and language learning
also interested in: anime, LGBTQ+ matters, anthropology, running, and solarpunk :)
If you want to know anything else, please just let me know! I'm happy to talk ^^'

2023.06.07 12:13 FrostiQuartz Medications/help for serious sugar addiction?
I am poor can’t afford appts often. But I want to make one to ask for help with a serious sugar addiction. I have lost teeth and had a sepsis scare due to an abscess bc of my sugar eating habits in the past and even through all that, I cannot stop eating processed sugar foods. What is a doctor most likely to do if I went in asking for help? I don’t want to make one of they tell me to deal with it myself bc that seems near impossible and will fail. I am female, 25, 63kgs and 5’6. Exercise regularly and although at a healthy weight, a lot of visceral fat. I get heart palpitations as of last year and low energy, fear for my health

2023.06.07 12:13 Ridan_ How to confront my boyfriend for how he acts around customer service?
Tldr: we both 23, been together nearly 3 years
I’ve noticed multiple times that when we go to restaurants, bars etc, a lot of the time he won’t acknowledge the waiters, bartenders etc and let me do the talking. He doesn’t even look at them sometimes.
He isn’t neurodivergent and around other people he is very chatty and outgoing, if anything I have far more social anxiety than he does. He’s constantly meeting and making new friends when he’s out and about.
My parents were very gung ho about making sure I was always polite to people. Now that Im older and work in finance I chat to the cleaners, janitors in the building the same I would anyone else. I’m not patting myself on the back for this btw, I see this as a bare minimum of being a decent person.
I worked as a waitress/bartender while at university and can confirm that one someone barely acknowledges you or says thank you, we notice. I never took it personally but it’s just a “huh, they’re kind of an ass” moment.
My bf has never had a customer service job.
Btw I’m not one of those annoying customers that doesn’t shut up. I’m just friendly and smiley to them.
The first few times I noticed I chalked it up to him maybe being tired and not in the mood to be chatty, totally fine.
I raised it with him and he said that since I’m happy to talk to them, he doesn’t see why it’s a big deal.
I said something along the lines of “I guess I was raised this way, my parents were always super strict about us being nice to customer service people.” He got offended by this and insisted that his parents are the same.
I’ve been out with his family and everyone but his dad is the exact same. I didn’t say this to him though.
I confessed that it’s embarrassing to be out with someone who can’t even be bothered to look at the waitress and will often order while scrolling on their phone, never says please or thank you. It takes minimal effort to be nice so why can’t he just do it?
He’s now giving me the cold shoulder and said some salty comments about how he was raised and he’s sorry I’m embarrassed by him.

2023.06.07 12:13 69Queen1 Day 6 & I made a terrible choice of food
Hi everyone, I’m on day six of Ozempic for weight loss, and last night I ordered an avocado, bacon, burger, and I am paying for it. I’ve had diarrhea (tmi) sorry, all night. I’ve been OK with the side effects again until last night I’ve been sick the whole night. I’ve also heard that injecting near the belly area is what causes the side effects, next week or not next week, but on Thursday tomorrow I will be injecting myself on the thigh. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. I know I’m supposed to eat healthier however, I definitely made a bad choice.

2023.06.07 12:11 GutsmanFanZX The beast in my room
It is 4:30 in the morning and I haven’t slept a wink all night. It is hot as hell and prime mosquito season where I live. The landlords refuse to let me spray for bugs because they are afraid of toxins. So I’m lying in this already miserable, hot room without a fan; but no, that is not even the worst part.
I have smashed the living brains out of about ten of these little creeps within the past couple days. Before I put myself to bed I felt satisfied having squished the life out of one flying, malaria-carrying bundle of joy. Thinking I was gonna have a relatively good night of sleep, I shut my eyes and tried to go to bed.
I twist in turn for about an hour. I pulled something in my leg standing on my bed trying to smash another one earlier which ended up partially ruining my sleep. I hadn’t given up yet. I was determined to go to sleep and I tried for a good 30 minutes until I heard the most ear-piercing noise of my life. It started soft and got louder and louder; it sounded like a night-core remix of someone throwing up. I then realized who it was. A little beast was fluttering around my room again!
I get up, already in pain from the last incident. I flip on the light, it’s too late now, the cover was blown. I knew this little vampire turd was hiding in my room ready to infect me with the next new disease. I got a tissue prepared to be its grave stone, but to no avail unfortunately. The little crapper was playing games with me!!!! It decided that 3:00am was the perfect time to play hide-and-go-seek. Screw that, I shut off the lights and tried to go to bed.
The second I get back in bed the beast flies right up to my ear and hums its hideous song. I jolt away fast so it can’t find a home on my skin. I turn back on the lights and it’s hiding again. Screw that, I’ll go sleep on the couch.
Finally, MAYBE I’ll get some sleep. Nope! There was one waiting for me in the living room too! It pulled the exact same thing! I went back to my room in defeat.
I turn on the lights to see little beast boy having a party at the highest point on my ceiling. It was buzzing so happily and frantically, it reminded me of a purring cat; its joy made me cringe. I gave up at this point. It is now nearly 5 am. I got no sleep and I’m watching malaria take loops across my room as it laughs at my suffering. It is flying in circles at the highest point so I can’t reach it; it never seems to get tired. It sounds like this beast is having the happiest time of its life right now and I honestly want to puke because of it.
My PSA to all of you, KILL THESE SORRY EXCUSES OF AN ANIMAL!!! DON’T PITY THEM! THEY OBVIOUSLY FIND JOY IN HUMAN SUFFERING SO GIVE THEM A TASTE OF THEIR OWN MEDICINE!!!!!
Thank you for listening to my Ted Talk. Good morning, guys! <3

2023.06.07 12:11 roooooooooben Back home from university and now I understand why people dislike the new challenges
I got into this game again last month while I was still at uni. Kind of thought people were exaggerating with their complaints about the flower planting challenges - you can just get nectar from mushroom raids and big flowers, right?
Now I’m back home for the summer, where there are zero other active players and hardly any big flowers. There is a single mushroom spawn point near me and a single big flower 15 minutes’ walk away. I’ve reached the first hydrangeas part of the challenge and I’m pretty much screwed :(

2023.06.07 12:10 Addiction_l Waking up with a feeling of vertigo that lasts a few seconds until I get up and position my head straight.
I've had this very often as a child but it went away for a good few years, today it came back together with dreams about demons and death of loved ones and curses being put upon me for visiting macabre "childhood places" (a building holding otherworldly capacities like time travel and transportation to other realms, but filled with bad entities)I haven't visited I a long time. Being near the building put a curse on my toe to grow hair that can't be pulled out because more grows with it and a little face painted with 2 dots as eyes and a smiley face on my big toe.
This curse made it so that every time I eat something I like I feel dizzy and bad, till one day while cuddling with my girlfriend and having breakfast at the same time, I noticed she starts to feel dizzy, then I noticed the hair and the face were gone on my toe, however I noticed her getting more and more dizzy every time she ate. I knew she somehow took the curse upon herself because she loves me but then one day I was outside watching her sit in a glass building and saw her die.
Is it worth mentioning maybe that when I take psychoactive drugs I start having thoughts about being forced as a child which I then identify as potential repressed trauma?
I'm thinking this sleep vertigo when waking up has a psychological cause and would like to hear some thoughts. I think the information provided probably helps.

2023.06.07 12:09 truckrepairservice How To Find Quick and Cheap Towing Services Near Me?
| || | submitted by truckrepairservice to u/truckrepairservice [link] [comments]
Cheap Towing Service Near Me
Nothing is more frustrating than having to halt your truck in the middle of the road because of an unexpected breakdown. Stuck in an unfamiliar place, with limited resources and nowhere to go, what would a driver do? Especially if the malfunction is so severe that quick action cannot help the truck to resume, finding towing services nearby becomes the need of the hour. An accident or a breakdown is a daunting experience in itself, and on top of that not being able to find the required towing services or truck repair shops makes it worse. For such situations, Breakdown Inc is a trucker's rescue, through which an isolated driver can find contacts of countless assistance providers near the location of the breakdown. These assistance providers or vendors offer truck repair services of various kinds. From providing quick services like altering a flat tire, oil change, etc., to carrying out heavy-duty towing and wrecking services, our vendors make sure that you donï¿½t feel helpless in this troubled situation of a breakdown.
Towing heavy vehicles such as trucks, trailers, and tractors require expert technicians and specialized equipment. Affordability is another factor that plays a key role in deciding which service provider to choose from. A reliable and cheap towing service requires not only to be quick but also to be prepared for heavy-duty towing with all kinds of tools available. Breakdown Inc enlists only those truck repair shops and tow truck service providers that meet the checklist of quality work. All that needs to be done while facing a breakdown is to download our user-friendly app available for free on Android as well as IOS devices. The app comes with a very easy-to-operate interface, which makes it convenient for the user to find the nearest service providers and compare prices. We also have a highly responsive website that functions similarly to the app. But to become a smart buyer, it is important to first know the fundamentals of heavy-duty towing.
All that you need to know about heavy-duty towing services.
Heavy-duty towing can be useful for towing big vehicles like trucks, RVs, and commercial vehicles. Also, in case of an accident, light-duty towing may not be sufficient and so heavy-duty towing is the need of the hour. Let's take a look at a few frequently asked questions about cheap towing services.
What type of vehicles needs heavy-duty towing?
Semi-trucks and trailers, RVs, buses, and big commercial vehicles require heavy-duty towing. Accidental vehicles too require tow trucks and equipment to move.
What techniques are used for towing?
Towing companies generally use three techniques for providing quick and hassle-free towing. Some vehicles can easily be towed with a flatbed technique in which the vehicle is placed over a big flat surface and attached to a truck. Big trucks may not be easily towed with the flatbed technique and so the wheel-lift or hook-and-chain technique is used.
What kind of equipment is used for towing?
Pulleys and winches come in handy while pulling heavy automobiles onto the flatbed and towing vehicle as they are powerful enough to carry the load of bulky trucks. These tools are then secured with chains and straps.
How to prepare your vehicle for heavy-duty towing?
It is advised to place cones and flares around your vehicle while you wait for the towing services to arrive as it is important to save your vehicle from the ongoing traffic. In case the truck has already been parked in a safe spot at the side of the road, then it is safe to wait for the towing experts to reach you.
Now, once the basics of towing are clear, it becomes a little easy for the user to choose the service provider. But before that, it is essential to look for a few factors that make a towing service reliable. It is important to keep a check on this list before finalizing your breakdown assistance provider.
While choosing towing experts, always go for professionals who are already experienced in the business and hold credit for towing several heavy-duty vehicles.
- Loading Capacity:
It is important to choose and find an ï¿½towing service near meï¿½ that is capable of carrying the heavy weight of trucks and trailers. A truck's weight can go up to as heavy as 80000 pounds and so the towing service provider needs to be equipped with all the necessary tools that can ease out the process of towing.
- Long-Distance Towing Provision:
For a heavy truck to be towed to a far distance from the place of the breakdown, the towing service provider needs to have professional drivers and durable equipment that can sustain the weight of the truck and ensure quick and timely towing.
The service providers need to be very careful with the handling of the vehicle which is to be towed to avoid any further damage to the truck.
The right towing service will never charge extra dollars for anything. Always be aware of the standard towing charges before selecting a vendor and go for the one which is not too heavy on your pocket.
Even after knowing all about towing and wrecking services, when the time comes and you need these services, it is a tough task to find help nearby. Breakdown Inc is that online directory that makes it easier for an anxious driver to find the necessary help within the closest distance from the location of the breakdown or accident. We have immense options for choosing from when it comes to selecting an assistance provider for services like truck repairs, trailer, and reefer repairs, towing, and wrecker services. Being quality-oriented, our vendors ensure that only skilled and expert technicians are sent out for providing roadside assistance. This means that once you choose to trust the Breakdown Inc app for selecting the nearest service provider, your truck will never fall into the wrong hands.

2023.06.07 12:03 zcatzblah Rereading School Reports
My parents gave me boxes of my old school stuff a few months back (I finished school about 10 years ago now) and I spent some time last week while I was unwell sorting through the boxes, as I naturally couldn't sit still for more than 10 minutes and needed to be doing something.
And boy, let me tell you I was not expecting to become so emotional reading through them. I had vaguely remembered teachers saying that I was easily distracted, often didn't do my homework, or struggled to concentrate, but seeing it in report after report was hard. I had so many issues with planning or structuring essays, I lost significant marks in exams on at least five separate occasions because I didn't read the question properly or went off on tangents that gained me 0 marks, or because my presentation was so bad they couldn't read my answers (lots of arrows and asterisks).
In some reports teachers referred to me as "lazy" and often said "She's intelligent, but if she'd just apply herself...". It was heartbreaking. There are self-reports from me where I'd have to state my goals for doing better in school and I would always say "concentrate more" or "be more organised". I feel for that little girl so much. I know teachers are slightly better now at recognising ADHD than they were 10-20 years ago, but I can't help feeling resentful. How did no-one suspect? Why was I left for so long with no support? I struggled with depression and anxiety for so long because I was convinced I was the problem; I could never get myself to concentrate more or be more organised. The reports don't even display half of the awful things certain teachers said to me in their frustration.
And when I was 11 or 12, my parents said I was old enough now to make my own lunch and set my own bedtime. So, naturally, I spent years surviving on 4 hours sleep a night with no breakfast or lunch, and they never seemed to realise or check? I didn't even realise how bad that was until I joked about it to a friend who became very serious and said that sounded near enough neglect. They were brilliant parents otherwise so I hadn't really thought about it.
I just feel so let down. I have a son of my own, and I couldn't imagine letting him go through what I went through. Do any parents have their own experiences of the current state of schools and their support for neurodiverse students? Is it better now than it was for us?

2023.06.07 12:02 Sweet-Count2557 Kid Friendly Things To Do In San Francisco California Near Me
2023.06.07 12:02 tercesthrowaway I started self-harming when I was 8 or 9 years old and my parents didn't notice and it makes me so sad
(TW: self-harm, but I guess that's kind of obvious)
So I've had a self-harm problem for more or less as long as I remember, and it started off as obsessive skin-picking and wound interference; I'd get a scratch in the playground or whatever and just pick and pick and pick until it turned into a horrible weeping sore, and I'd keep them open for weeks and weeks on end. There was one on my arm that I still have a scar from even though I'm now nearly 30, so something that was initially a mild scratch has left a scar that's lasted nearly 20 years. Eventually I started using sharp objects to gouge at the wounds, before finally "graduating" to making new injuries myself. I was cutting myself regularly by the time I started high school; it got more and more serious over time, and a couple of years ago I reached a stage where I started needing stitches regularly and giving myself nerve damage.
It hadn't really occurred to me that even the "milder" self-harm when I was a kid was actually quite traumatic in and of itself (like, a 9 year old shouldn't have to be doing their own first aid locked in the bathroom alone being terrified of someone finding out). I was talking about it in therapy this morning and my therapist looked really sad and was like "didn't your parents notice?". And like, they didn't, or if they did, they didn't say anything. It makes me so, so sad, in some ways more sad than the fact that they didn't notice the "real" self-harm. There's something so grim about a kid that young being covered in weeping sores and having no-one give a shit. My GF has an 8-year-old daughter, and if she had some grungy infected-looking injury I wouldn't dream of just ignoring it, I'd bend over backwards checking if she was okay and being like "oh no, you poor thing :(" and making sure it was getting taken care of, and I'm not even her parent.
Was I really that worthless? I don't know what I did wrong :(

2023.06.07 12:02 Wiltshirepiper Different Occasions in which Piper is Used
The forefathers believed that if a bagpiper met with the bride first, she would be assured of a happy marriage. Thus, they kept the tradition of having a piper play at weddings going strong for hundreds of years. It gives an excellent vibration to the occasion. The Bagpipers Near Me
will be the best ones for your event. Below mentioned are the different events in which Piper is used: Wedding:
Whether it is a church or a civil ceremony, having a Piper for Wedding
adds a special touch to your wedding day. Any portion of your wedding's ceremony or reception would benefit from the presence of bagpipes. After the ceremony, while the wedding party and guests are having their pictures taken, play the bride and groom out. Play the couple up to their table during the wedding breakfast once they have finished the reception queue, if appropriate. Play while any further guests arrive if a separate evening wedding reception is scheduled. Burns supper:
An integral component of a burns supper is the presence of a piper. After the meal, the Burns Super Piping
can be invited to play again before the following readings and songs. Usually, this is followed by a toast to the lassies. This is another crucial speech at every burns supper, and it now contributes significantly to the event's rich theatricality, coupled with the lassies' response. Funerals:
Pipers have always been a tradition at state and military funerals, but today, piling is becoming increasingly prevalent at funerals for loved ones. The sound of the bagpipes provides a beautiful send-off for your loved one, which adds a distinctive touch to the service. Wrapping it up:
Learning to play the bagpipes is a journey that calls for perseverance, commitment, and a love of the instrument. There is always more to discover and learn, whether you are a novice or an expert player. Visit-https://wiltshirepiper.co.uk/

2023.06.07 12:01 Own_Beautiful_6524 my partner thinks that i am clinically depressed
Before getting into it, I want to make it clear: I love living and being alive, and I am not at all hopeless… I also love my partner but found that we have two totally different ways of communicating our internal thoughts/feelings/ways of thinking and experiencing…
The conversation began with a question: if someone (or something) were to reach inside of you, what would “you” feel like?
They answered that it would feel warm, but rigid. Not spiky or sharp, but that distinct feeling of gripping warmed metal (think popping the hood of a vehicle that sat under the sun, without shade). That their inner “self” would be tangible, but not fit in the palm of your hands, probably not as far as your arms could even stretch.
That was it and I can absolutely feel that from them.
I answered that if someone reached into me, that they would pass through a thin, mucus-like layer into… nothing. There would be an emptiness there.
This was confusing for them.
So I continued- that if someone were to reach inside of me to “touch me” it would feel like sitting in pitch black darkness with your hand in front of your face. That kind of darkness where you’re not even sure of how far away your palm is or how far apart you’ve stretched your fingers. That kind of void where your physical understanding of your own body gets a bit skewed. Disorienting?
I kept trying to explain it and ended with “a black hole but in reverse,” thinking that would make it clear - in hindsight, that’s even murkier than all the shit beforehand.
After an extremely pregnant pause, they said “my love, you’re depressed. That’s depression.” I nearly lost it, trying to stammer over myself and clarify everything I previously said (while crying, now, mind you). They expressed they have never felt that way and that “most people don’t feel that way.”
not that I think being depressed or suffering from depression is anything to be ashamed of. Instead, I was trying (am trying) to express that most people maybe do feel this way - that we’re all tired, confused, jumbled up pile of thoughts, feelings, rationalizations, and cells - trying to communicate it all in ways that limited language won’t allow.
But now I look at them differently - after six years of being in a relationship - I’m not sure if I actually AM as depressed as they believe or if I’ll ever be able to accurately convey to them what it is I feel at my core.
This is just a long winded way of saying: we may be vibing in two different levels and idk if they’re down to clown - but man, am I tired.

2023.06.07 12:01 Seahorse_12 I (M30) took part in a paid study at my local university that studied the affects of different diets on abdominal weight gain. I’ve put on nearly 115 pounds in 1.5 years. The money was worth it, but wondering if they took it too far… can’t believe what I look like now lol

are some pictures and videos taken by me or others over the course of the last year and a half.
My local university was conducting a medical study on the affects of different diets on weight gain. I signed up and was chosen and the potential money to be made was very appealing. The first two months of the study involved simply eating at a calorie surplus on a premade diet to see how it affected my body’s weight gain. After taking measurements after these initial two months, if my body’s measurements represented any kind of high percentile outlier, I would be selected to potentially continue for the entire 1.5 year study focused on a particular area of the body. Of all of the participants, my abdominal girth was at the highest percentile ratio of girth compared to weight/height, so they selected me to participate focusing on abdominal weight gain and to see how severe it could be.
They paid me about $3,000 a month and had all of my food paid for as I followed a specific premade diet plan that changed every 2 or 3 months to study the affects these specific diets had. Some were dairy heavy, carb heavy, specific types of meats only, mixing in alcohol consumption, specific supplements, etc. I’m incredibly busy in my life with work right now and having a free premade meal plan plus so much extra cash was too good to pass up. So I decided to continue for the entire 1.5 year study.
Fast forward to now, having finished the entire trial, I am starting to have some serious regrets. I’ve put on nearly 115 pounds since last January and I never expected the results to have me looking like this. Honestly, I think even the researchers themselves were really shocked by my result. My ratio of abdominal girth to height/weight is at the highest percentile of the study, their entire student body, and anyone who has participated in the study before. I gained most all of the weight in my torso, which they are severely attributing to genetics and simply the effectiveness of the tailored diets they had me following.
I obviously look ridiculous now. I haven’t even been able to keep up with buying a new professional wardrobe for work (as you can tell my the pictures and videos linked). I was gaining an average of 7 pounds a month, some months being just 3 pounds and some being an entire 15 pounds in a month. So many things are difficult… I break a sweat going up one flight of stairs, I can hardly put my shoes or socks on, fitting into restaurant booths is nearly impossible, getting in and out of my car or off the couch takes preparation. People stare at me in stores or on the street. I had a homeless guy ask me “Jesus Christ, what the fuck? Are you pregnant, dude?” once. My coworkers are polite but make comments here and there.
I haven’t seen my family since early in the study when the weight gain wasn’t very noticeable. I’m seeing them in 2 weeks for a reunion, and I cannot even imagine what they are going to say. I didn’t tell them I took part in this because I knew they wouldn’t approve, but now I wish I had because how am I going to prepare them or explain to them why I look like this now and how it happened so fast. I’m worried to fit on the plane on the way there and having to travel. I’m so nervous to see them. And honestly would like any genuine opinions of whether or not I’m blowing this out of proportion or if they are genuinely going to be shocked. Maybe I can hide it better if I find the right clothing.
I really regret doing this now for the most part and hope I’m able to start reversing it as soon as possible. Thanks for letting me vent. Happy to also answer any questions on what I learned nutritionally and what the different diets did and how they affected me too.

[after an investigation by the police about a strange murder, a booked called "journal" was found in the bathroom]
I don't think i'm alone.... i've heard footstep when i was in the bathroom.
I remember my neighbour crying, or was it someone else.
I moved to the kitchen... Some knifes are missing and my tv is on a static position.....
My cat is laying near the tv with those ears downed on his head At this point i don't even know if my cat is still alive He moved like three days ago....
I need some fresh water on my face...
The mirror of the bathroom is becoming more and more dark as we are approaching midnight....
The footstep started again. Maybe if i don't make any brutal movement and go to my bed, that thing won't see or hear me.
There are those two eyes in front of my bed..... Those strange yellow...... There are looking directly at me..... My cat don't have yellow eyes..... What is happening..... Is that thing friendly ? I heard someone crying there was like two minutes..... I bring my book whit me...... Its dark and cold....
There is that slimy liquid all around my bed.... Maybe if i reach the bathroom all of that will stop....
The mirror of the bathroom is broken and the strange liquid was blood...... The blood is disposed in like a trail or i don't know.... Maybe something was pushed all around my house...... My cat is looking at me like i don't exist anymore...... Maybe if i exit my house.... All of that will stop..... [The journal was stopped here, leaving only some mage and a red hand mark on the journal, the red mark was identified as blood]

2023.06.07 12:01 tora_sage I don’t want to lose my cat
I have four cats, two male and two female. Mother and three babies. One is 6 and the rest are 5. She was already pregnant when I rescued her. They all get on fine.
I feed the stray cats and noticed a black cat (Ozzy) would always come and have a bite to eat despite having a home - which is fine. Overtime, Ozzy stopped going home and stayed with me in my house. I know the owner and she stated it was fine and easier for her as she’s struggling with her kids. She told me her youngest would pick him up and annoy him so he never liked going home so it was fine that he stayed with me. She pops in when she’s walking past or smooths him if he’s outside. He’s been living with me for a few months. This cat DOES NOT LEAVE. He’s here now. He’s comfortable.
He is such a loving cat and is funny, full of life. The only issue is, he fights with one of my other cats (Kora). He is fine with the other three apart from her who is the smallest one and female. All of my cats are spayed / neutered but not sure if Ozzy is. There is no issue with the male cats or the other female, it’s always just Kora.
She is terrified of him and won’t go near him. When he sees her, he pounces for her, chases her and will corner her. I have no idea why he does this only to her but I’ve tried everything with him. They don’t interact that often as Kora likes to stay outside and the Ozzy likes to stay inside but I’ve had enough of it and told the owner she needs to take him back. She stated she’s moving soon and will take him when she goes but I feel so guilty.
I know I have to prioritise Kora but Ozzy has really made his home here. He sleeps with me, follows me around everywhere and wants to be with me. I don’t think his owner showed him the love I do or plays with him. I’m going to be heartbroken when he leaves but it’s not fair on Kora to be terrified to come home.
Does anyone have any advice as a last resort? If not, unfortunately Ozzy will have to go but it’ll be hard.
