  1. Our cat was diagnosed with kidney problems and we were told to give him special food. Royal Canin has a special selection of cat food but it is only available from a vet. Kattovit  also has a selection of special cat food which you can buy online.

    We also tried the infusion therapy. Our vet showed us how to give him the infusion so we could do this at home.

    We were very fortunate to have a vet who did home visits as it is a lot of stress to put a cat in a box and transport it to the vets, but sometimes there is just no other way possible.

     

    When the time came to let him go, we took him into the living room and he was put to sleep on our coffee table, in his own home with us by his side. I hope he thought, oh here we go again, the strange person ( the vet) will give me another injection but my family are here with me. Although it was a very sad occasion, it was quiet, very dignified and he was not frightend at all as he had no idea what was going to happen as he was used to the vet coming and examining him.   

     

    Wishing you and your cat all the best.

  2. 41 minutes ago, Jim Andrews said:


    I have 3 months notice period. I only wrote the day I resigned not the exact end date, only the day that I resigned. 

     

     

    IMO you haven't really resigned as there is no termination date.

    As stated by Wherearewegoingto, the letter of resignation needs to bear a date, the address of your employer and your own address and a termination date and you must sign it.

     

    You have to write when the contract will be terminated. They will see from the date when you wrote the letter and can check if it conforms to your notice period.

     

    Your contract ends on the last pay day, regardless if you work on this day or are on holiday.

     

    This may be the reason why they sent you an Aufhebungsvertrag

  3. Did you read your contract before you resigned?  What notice period do you have?  Did you write in your letter of resignation the exact day when you will leave the company?  

     

    If yes, it is a very strange situation. If not this may be the reason why they sent you an Aufhebungsvertrag. Check and compare all the details as Lenny Nero suggested.

     

    Before you spend money on a lawyer, ask your HR department why they sent you the document.

  4. "Going to parties and everyone sitting at tables"

    Going to parties and having to use the du and the Sie form when sat at the table.

     

    I have lived here so long and still cannot understand why Germans cannot form a queue. It is a real nightmare trying to get served at our local bakery, nobody stands in line and everyone thinks it is their turn when asked.

     

    Lidl also have supermarkets in England. Perhaps you can continue to buy your veggie balls there.

  5. What a terrible thing to happen. I hope you dogs make a speedy recovery.

     

    On another note, you said there was no contract which is strange. How did you pay the bill and did you get a proper receipt ?

     

    Please keep us posted how things are working out for you and your dogs.

  6. How sad this that could happen to someone.

     

    When you hear how people from so called poor countries treat older people with the utmost respect and care for them till the end, it makes you wonder what is going wrong in our world?

     

    Thank you for posting this, you and your colleagues are doing a great job.

  7. It turned out that his so called fundraising and charity work automatically gave him access to children and vunerable people. He was also a close friend of the then Mayor of Scarborough Mr Jaconneli who had an ice-cream shop on the sea front. What a coincidence that children love to go to ice-cream shops.  

     

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/jun/26/jimmy-savile-sexual-abuse-timeline

     

    Mr Jaconneli, who ran an ice cream business, was described by police as a friend of Jimmy Savile, who also lived in the town. The force has referred itself to the Independent Police Complaints Commission regarding its handling of child sex abuse allegations against Savile and Mr Jaconelli, who died in 1999.

     

    A police spokesman said: "Such is the nature of the evidence that, if he were alive today, Peter Jaconelli would have been interviewed under caution and a file of evidence would have been submitted for consideration by the Crown Prosecution Service."

     

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-27382077

     

    The biggest scandal in my opinion is that lots of people suspected something was going on but nobody spoke out because Jimmy Saville was such a famous person and did lots of charity work. As the Mayor of Scarborough, Mr Jaconelli was a respected person in the town with lots of contacts.

  8. I really feel sorry for you. Many of us here know what it is like to be in a strange country, far from  family and in a terrible situation but as you can see from the comments here help is at hand.

     

    Google jobs at your local hospitals. The websites are often in English and there are usually lots of non-care like jobs such as moving beds from one ward to another, catering jobs and possibly jobs where you can speak English.

  11. Native Americans, English sailors and pirates all came together on Ocracoke Island in North Carolina to create the only American dialect that is not identified as American.

     

    “I'd never been called a dingbatter until I went to Ocracoke for the first time. I've spent a good part of my life in North Carolina, but I'm still learning how to speak the ‘Hoi Toider’ brogue. The people here just have their own way of speaking: it's like someone took Elizabethan English, sprinkled in some Irish tones and 1700s Scottish accents, then mixed it all up with pirate slang. But the Hoi Toider dialect is more than a dialect. It's also a culture, one that's slowly fading away. With each generation, fewer people play meehonkey, cook the traditional foods or know what it is to be mommucked.”

    Are there any Toytowners from Ocracoke Island?

  12. When you begin work at a new company, your employer notifies your health insurance company and the state pension department and so on that you have begun work at company x. When your contract ends, your company informs the same organizations that you finished working for them on xxxx. You will also be given a document stating how many days holiday you have taken.

     

    Your next employer needs these documents as they have to do the whole procedure again stating when you began working for them. Your contributions to the health insurance company and state pension scheme etc. are automatically deducted from your salary from your first employer. If the second employer does not have information from you or company 1 when your contract ended, they will also automatically deduct health insurance, tax etc from you salary from day one too. This will mean you will pay double into these organizations.

     

    As your first employer has your tax documents, your second employer is obliged by law to tax your earnings with tax class 6, the highest tax class.

     

    You will also have a lot of explaining to do with the said organisations when they discover that you were contracted to two different employers at the same time as this is not possible.

  14. Tax class 1 is for single people without children. Tax class 6 is used if you have not handed your tax class details to your employer when commencing work with the company or you have a second job that is not a 450 Euro job.

     

    If you only worked for one employer from January- May, I cannot understand why they changed your tax class as from January. IMO Tax class 1 is correct from January-April at least if this was your only salary.

     

    Did you begin work with a new company while officially on a paid holiday from the first company?

    Why don’t you ask employer 1 if you can terminate your contract earlier as you have the chance of another job?
