The family of an Australian man dying of cancer sneaked their pet cat into hospital for a final farewell. In a video posted to Tik Tok, Paul Lewis' family is shown preparing their ginger feline Coco, for his trip to Muswellbrook hospital, New South Wales. Lewis, who is filmed lying on a hospital bed, had bowel and kidney cancer. He was rushed to hospital on Friday, February 28 after his health deteriorated. He passed away on Monday. According to his grandaughter Alisha Foti, the family's 19-year-old feline was very close with Lewis. "Coco was frantically looking for my grandfather on Sunday," Foti told MailOnline. Although the family were told Lewis

Comments:

When my mom had a stroke and we were worried about whether she would wake up, all we thought about was finding a way to get her cat to her. Yes, it's stupid, but families are helpless in such circumstances and want to do something. People are close to their pets.

Either you understand or you don't. Those of us who consider our pets as true members of our families are heartbroken when then pass. To us it's not just a cat, or a dog. We are emotionally bonded. Two years ago my two favorite cats passed within three months of each other. I will always have a hole in my heart. Dear Lord welcome this man home and hold his family and yes, his cat in your arms.

I know that I would be happy to have my pets visit me. I smile every time I'm heading home and think of the greeting I'm going to get at the door from my pup. Its funny, I don't worry about how my family will cope when I pass, because I have life insurance, minimal debt, they are adults and will inherit the whole kit and caboodle. What I worry about is, what happens to the dogs.

Amen to #1. And I'm very sorry about the passing of your cats. I trust they are in heaven. Poster #2, can you stipulate to the care of your dogs in your will? Anyone with legal knowledge able to opine?

I get it. We've lost three Pugs over the last nine years, one last month. We got past it, more or less. But we'll never get over losing them.

That was a very sweet thing for his family to do, but I would not have posted it for all to see. If somebody in that ward gets a certain type of infection, they may now blame the cat.

I would die quicker without a final huzz with my kitties. My mom, an RN, let an elderly man dying (ironically) of lung cancer, light up a ciggy in his room with the window cracked open...when she caught him, she didn’t have the heart to stop him (regardless of the obvious problem with his oxygen feed and a lit cigarette). Told him no oxygen and make it quick...so yeh, sometimes it happens.

We have three Ragdolls. Our first cat as a couple died at age 19 and we cried for 2 weeks. It was AWFUL! When we lose our Ragdolls they will be replaced with new ones. A home without a pet isn't a home!

When my rescue service pup died in my arms after 3 transfusions and oxygen therapy, due to Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia, IMHA, I asked my Pastor if pups go to heaven... He responded, “Scripture is not clear, but I KNOW mine did”!

My dear husband was in nursing facilities 9 months before he passed. I took his pet parrot, a Quaker, to see him several times. He seemed pleased with the visit. It was helpful to the parrot too. Now he just has me, but most days he cheers me with attention and he sings to me. God bless the animals who enrich our lives.

Germ warfare from a China press pool denizen? 3 replies
Posted by PageTurner 3/15/2020 11:37:17 AM Post Reply
China's CGTN, or China Global Television Network, is pretty much the RT News of China. It's the state propaganda and disinformation operation most aggressively active, and watched, by spies, of any nation that pays attention to China. Last February 2019, it was forced to register as a foreign agent. So what weird stuff it is to read that one of its reporters has been caught at the White House gate with a high fever, which is a symptom of the highly contagious coronavirus. The fever was in the 100-degree range. You'd know if you had such a fever. Yet the person was clamoring to get into a closed-quarters press briefing

Quantifying How Well the Trump
Administration Is Doing on Coronavirus

The debate over the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is remarkably devoid of hard data comparisons. With President Trump’s decision on Wednesday to expand travel restrictions to the European Union, it is time to evaluate the very different approaches to travel restrictions that the U.S. and the E.U. have taken. The end of January seems long ago. Until January 30th, the World Health Organization (WHO) explicitly declined to classify the coronavirus (COVID-19) as a global emergency. It urged countries not to restrict travel or trade. The WHO announcement on travel was partially in response to the U.S. government’s January 27th recommendation that Americans “avoid all non-essential travel to China.”

Italy's in dire need of help. Its health care system is collapsing. The coronavirus has put the whole country in quarantine. There are now 15,000 cases, along with 1,018 deaths, the last 24 hours bringing in 188 more. The casualty count is the highest outside China. And it's spreading fast. Until a few days ago, the problem as concentrated in the north. Now, it has spread throughout the whole country. Anyone with a heart can feel pity and an urge to help them. They need help, bad. But don't go asking the European Union. Turns out the open-borders globalist set-up is stiffing the Italians in their hour of need:

Here's what RedState had to say about it: Hunter Biden and his attorneys really do have a lot of nerve. They have been stringing an Arkansas court along for months now, not providing information in the child support case against Biden by Lunden Roberts.

No doubt about it, it’s a bad time to be fully invested in the stock market. Prognosticators abound, yet no one really knows what the stock market will do next. What’s happening, and what should you do? First, let’s recap Monday’s market mayhem. Before the market even opened, stock futures for S&P 500 index flashed a huge 7% decline. That triggered so-called “circuit breakers,” rules that require trading to be suspended 15 minutes to prevent a panicked rush for the exits. That’s always a bad sign. Equally bad, the Dow Jones Industrial Average tanked more than 2,000 points, off 7.8%

What is it with the left and its seeming desire to kill others?

Now we have leftists mocking Sen. Ted Cruz for self-quarantining, after being exposed to a coronavirus patient at the CPAC conference, in order to prevent any spread of the disease to others, including political opponents. That includes leftists in Congress and anyone else. Given that coronavirus exposure sometimes turns well people into "superspreaders," it was a highly responsible and empathetic thing to do.

(snip for tweet) Imagine what the Biden campaign staff meetings are like now. It's never good news when a rival candidate is cheering your candidate's statements.

In fast-moving sports, that's an own-goal, an accident of spatial vector miscalculations and overexcited players. Joe's none of that. He's just a mean and confused old man.

First of all, Wuhan is a place and not a race, and to identify the coronavirus by its place of origin, like naming the Ebola Virus for a river in Zaire, is not racist or xenophobic — it's merely accurate. There is no racism or xenophobia in labeling an infection "Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever" or calling something "Lyme Disease" after a nearby town in Ohio. What calling this latest virus the Wuhan Virus is is a reminder of the multiple contagions China has spawned and released on an unsuspecting world.

Never let it be said that Bernie Sanders isn't doing his level best to spread fear and panic across America. At a doom-and-gloom press conference today, Sanders pleaded with Trump to pay for everyone to be tested for COVID-19, demanded paid leave for all, and generally transplanted his political agenda onto the coronavirus response that the U.S. should make. How convenient. But most of all, Sanders is telling Americans that they are in grave danger because the president has fallen down on the job. And the ultimate cost of Trump's incompetence will be hundreds of thousands of dead.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio advocated for nationalizing certain industries to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus. While appearing on MSNBC's AM Joy, host Joy Reid asked de Blasio how someone in New York City should go about getting tested during the growing COVID-19 pandemic. "People can get tested according to a priority structure, and it's not enough testing. It's just as simple as that," de Blasio said, later claiming that the city has been "pleading" with the federal government for additional testing. "Here's the reality. This is a war-like situation. We're in a wartime scenario with a 'Mar-a-Lago attitude' being used by the federal government, right?"

This evening I received confirmation that the test is negative,” White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said in a statement released via White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham. “One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the President remains symptom-free. I have been in daily contact with the CDC and White House Coronavirus Task Force, and we are encouraging implementation of all their best practices for exposure reduction and transmission mitigation.”

Andrew Gillum's carefully cultivated image as a rising political star and God-fearing family man came crashing down after he was found in a Miami Beach hotel room with two men and baggies of suspected meth. The former Tallahassee, Fla., mayor was in Tallahassee on Monday to energize college voters at Florida State and Florida A&M University, where his political ambitions were born. But four days later, his well-publicized effort to register a million voters ahead of Election Day was in major doubt, along with his once-promising political career.

Andrew Gillum, the former Mayor of Tallahassee, was the Democrat candidate for governor in 2016. Ultimately Ron DeSantis won by almost 34,000 votes. Florida may have dodged a bullet. On Friday, Candace Owens published on Twitter photos of a police report in which Gillum figured prominently with a sordid tale of drugs and, possibly, a gay sex orgy. According to the police report, in the early hours of February 13, Miami Beach police responded to a possible overdose in a hotel room. When they arrived, they discovered three men: Travis Dyson, the man who overdosed; Aldo Mejias, who made the 911 call; and Andrew Gillum.

On Sunday evening, the remaining candidates with a real shot at the Democratic nomination will meet in Washington amid a pandemic to state why they should be chosen to lead the nation. In many ways, the debate will vary from all others held since last summer. Instead of a large and diverse field of candidates, only two old, white men remain. And instead of testing their styles and one-liners in front of a crowd, this meeting will lack an audience. With so much stripped away, the candidates will either shine or fail. At this moment, it seems that the nomination is former Vice President Joe Biden's to lose.
