00:51
This is the last episode in this

00:54
long term amigo Trev is joining
01:00
me on another episode to say
01:00
goodbye for this season. Dr.
01:03
Hello. Hello. I feel sad. I feel
01:03
like I'm welling up. Yes, but
01:10
what's the reason for that? Last
01:10
one, I thought is because I was
01:14
going to tell you I've because
01:14
it's the end of the season. I've
01:17
produced some music because
01:17
especially for you. Not not the
01:20
Jason Donovan, so yeah, that's
01:20
nice. Yeah, I've been working on
01:30
this for you. So I'd like to
01:30
play it to you. If you wouldn't
01:32
mind. I'd love to hear it. There
01:32
we go. Buckle your seatbelts.
01:47
Did you mean you don't know what
01:47
that's about? You were known as
01:55
the Pied Piper of cell phones.
01:55
Come on. That's Pied Piper. As
01:58
Pied Piper is I'm gonna find for
01:58
free anyway. You remember that
02:03
trip? I remember when you lived
02:03
in your flight when you first
02:07
lived on your own in a flat. I
02:07
used to go around and got to
02:10
make the sound right because
02:10
because could come across. But
02:15
yeah, but to be fair, I used to
02:15
go there used to be like a queue
02:17
of kids outside trebs house
02:17
waiting to be given stuff
02:20
because Dre was known for his
02:20
generosity. And the kids love
02:23
him. Obviously. He's like I've
02:23
ever it's giving away games,
02:26
music, letting them play
02:26
PlayStation. I mean, the parents
02:29
were with them as well, to be
02:29
honest, just so we're clear
02:31
there. Yeah, yeah, it was a lot
02:31
of our neighbours in the kids
02:35
dentistry. I used to give them
02:35
lots of stickers for mountain
02:40
bike magazines and kurang and
02:40
Metal Hammer. And they usually
02:44
come into play my PlayStation,
02:44
did they? Actually, they were
02:49
like, so cheeky at one point in
02:49
the summer that we were having a
02:54
water fight. I was having a
02:54
water fight. I went and got
02:57
like, a saucepan of water and
02:57
threw it over. And child cruel
03:02
torture and little salt what
03:02
they did. I had a communal
03:06
hallway. So they decided to get
03:06
a hose and put it through my
03:11
letterbox. But I didn't realise
03:11
lovely quiz. All it did was
03:16
flood the hole. See my neighbour
03:16
upstairs. So I've got on we've
03:20
really well was not impressed.
03:20
Of course not. No, dear. Yes. So
03:25
this is what I mean by being the
03:25
pipe but sorry about the I don't
03:27
know if he was expecting some
03:27
kind of epic gladiatorial music
03:31
or St. Trevor Southern rock
03:31
vibes. But in some kind of not
03:35
as some others do have some kind
03:35
of tribute back. Yeah, I was
03:38
expecting some kind of action
03:38
hero rock tune and I just got a
03:43
main play. Sorry, I didn't mean
03:43
to disappoint you or make me
03:46
smile. But I didn't mean to
03:46
bring back bad memories about
03:48
hosing down your neighbor's
03:48
house. quick story as well about
03:52
those kids. And this shows you
03:52
how awful I could have got in
03:56
trouble back. But I had a corner
03:56
shop where I was a paper boy
04:00
when I was a kid. And it was
04:00
like three doors down. So I
04:05
usually kind of ever share on
04:05
somebody. And if I was like run
04:08
out of milk, I'd walk up to me
04:08
in my dressing gown and like
04:11
with a towel on my head because
04:11
I belong here. And sometimes I'd
04:15
see the kid next door in there.
04:15
And he was given me a lot of
04:20
Jeep. And so just as a lot I
04:20
just shouted my bomb.
04:26  Unknown
Oh, no. But anyway, I
04:26
know this is 25 years ago, but
04:30
if it changed that
04:32  Wayne
was my wife was my
04:32
girlfriend. And I her mom was a
04:40
teacher at this school and the
04:40
kid was in her class. And he
04:44
went into school as it said
04:44
Cramer show bs bomb lost. I
04:53
don't know if I should be
04:53
laughing at this or should I
04:54
should be crying. Anyway Yeah,
04:54
I'm sorry. This Other way this
05:00
was going on. This was meant to
05:00
be a little tribute to your
05:03
parser I didn't know anything
05:03
about this shady stuff and now
05:05
you've bought me into it. So
05:05
this this episode, as we like to
05:09
do at the end of the season is a
05:09
bit different to everything
05:11
else. We haven't got an
05:11
interview today, we couldn't
05:13
find any Now we could find
05:13
somebody obviously we know we
05:16
can find people. But on the last
05:16
episode of the season, we like
05:19
to do a bit different celebrate
05:19
the end of the season, ever chat
05:22
about something meaningful.
05:22
Usually, that's only something
05:26
that's not meaningful to
05:26
everyone else. Maybe like we
05:28
haven't fully completed a metal
05:28
gear solid game or something.
05:30
But I'm sure we can find
05:30
something better than that. But
05:33
what we thought we would do for
05:33
the end of season is call this
05:35
episode, The Secret Love of pet
05:35
owners. And that's basically
05:40
celebrating the fact that
05:40
Britain especially but you know
05:42
across the world unless you're
05:42
from China, then you just eat
05:45
them. You we love pets, we love
05:45
our pets. We actually love our
05:49
pets a lot more than humans
05:49
sometimes I believe, would you
05:52
say sorry? Oh, easily, to be
05:52
honest. Yeah. And a lot a lot of
05:58
people who follow me on social
05:58
media and know me know, I've
06:02
always loved cats. I've never
06:02
had many pets. I've never had a
06:06
dog. I've always had cats or
06:06
they've been when you were a kid
06:10
you have gerbils and hamsters
06:10
and stuff like that. But yeah,
06:14
cats has always been my thing.
06:14
And people my cat I've got now
06:21
is probably deserves his own
06:21
social media. What's gonna say
06:27
you? I mean, if anyone who
06:27
follows us they'll be I see you
06:29
do the things that your cat gets
06:29
up to is quite honestly. When
06:35
when we I got even from the
06:35
rescue place, because I mean, so
06:39
that, you know, I know people
06:39
will love pedigree cats and
06:43
animals, but there's so many
06:43
animals out there walking the
06:48
streets and stuff like that. And
06:48
like, if you're going to get an
06:52
animal get a rescue one, because
06:52
they all they just need homes.
06:58
It's all right heavy, like a
06:58
made to measure little Persian
07:01
or, you know, I understand that.
07:01
But you know, when you go into
07:06
these cat homes, there's just so
07:06
destroyed. And when I got
07:10
placed, and I'll tell you why
07:10
it's called plissken. He, I knew
07:15
instantly that he was mine,
07:15
because I walked in and he's
07:20
sitting there with one. And he's
07:20
a big fella really lumpy. He's
07:24
like a lawyer. And he he just
07:24
climbed up the cage. He was
07:29
like, What? I can't believe I
07:29
can't remember. What's the guy
07:35
that climbs up the fence in the
07:35
greatest sky? Ives isn't it?
07:38
Yeah, I think so. Yeah, shot
07:38
that he was doing that. And as
07:42
soon as I opened the guy next
07:42
door, he was all over me. Hurry,
07:46
and he was like a machine gun.
07:46
And that was it. And I was so
07:51
worried that someone else is
07:51
gonna take it. I agreed to have
07:53
him on the spot. I kept phoning
07:53
the cat home, finding the cat. I
07:59
was gonna say. Charlie says
07:59
we're not talking about a
08:09
project. You don't know. Yeah, I
08:09
was so worried. I'd found every
08:14
day to make sure he was still
08:14
there. But he um, yeah, he he
08:20
was a he's a character. And they
08:20
all say no, I say the cat's got
08:23
two homes. And he works. He
08:23
lives next door neighbour as
08:27
well. He just he spends the
08:27
night with me and the nice
08:31
house. And then all the morning
08:31
and then he goes off at lunch
08:36
and goes next door at this site.
08:36
So as always, that's what you
08:41
do. What the differences between
08:41
I mean dogs and cats are the two
08:44
predominant pets that we have in
08:44
the in Britain, MD. What do you
08:48
think the percentage is? The
08:48
share is Trevor, what do you
08:50
reckon? Between cats and dogs in
08:50
the UK? Well, the thing is, is
08:54
that that's the different
08:54
reasons because obviously cats
08:58
are so independent and don't
08:58
need where dogs are the
09:02
opposite, aren't they? Yeah,
09:02
baby. Yeah. I'm gonna guess.
09:09
It's called Eva. Yeah, I was
09:09
quite surprised to be quite
09:12
60% cat 40% dogs sexually. Oh,
09:12
yeah, but sorry, you're doing
09:17
the wrong percentage sense. And
09:17
I don't like to break that down.
09:20
But of 51% of UK adults own a
09:20
pet. So basically overfit over
09:24
half the population have a pet
09:24
of some kind. And out of that
09:28
26% of UK adults are over a
09:28
quarter. I'm not patronising
09:31
you, by the way. weedmaps just
09:31
is trying to emphasise it, you
09:34
know, kind of why 26% of UK
09:34
adults have a dog with an
09:38
estimated population of 10 point
09:38
1 million dogs and 24% of the UK
09:43
adult population have a cat as
09:43
10 point 9 million cat that does
09:47
that work. If it's less it's
09:47
less percentage of cats, but I
09:51
suppose it just the way it works
09:51
when the ratios but yeah, it's
09:54
very even it's very even sort of
09:54
10 to 11 million. If you want to
09:58
know 2% of the UK adult
09:58
population have rabbits, but I
10:01
don't know if that means No, he
10:01
doesn't know going there with
10:03
that. But yeah, so So yeah, so I
10:03
just got it's quite a few and
10:07
you're like you were just gonna
10:07
point out drive the differences
10:10
dogs need you need this sort of
10:10
our man's best friend, aren't
10:13
they? If you want something
10:13
standing by your side you need
10:17
the attention you like it but if
10:17
you weren't saying that just
10:20
drops in and out entertainment
10:20
No, they don't they use you but
10:27
you can kind of leave them alone
10:27
and you don't have to walk them
10:29
all the time they walk
10:29
themselves don't there's nothing
10:32
more soul destroying and
10:32
thinking. I'll get my cane
10:36
across the road. And you're
10:36
calling him and he just looks at
10:39
you nonchalantly like what do
10:39
you want? Yeah, I'm not I'm
10:44
ready now. I'm not no I'm not
10:44
ready for that. Oh wait no What
10:51
do you tell everyone why you
10:51
called him plissken Well
10:54
basically Pete obviously people
10:54
don't listen to the podcast know
10:57
that have a massive Filmfare
10:57
though because Russell fan and
11:00
john Carpenter fan and as soon
11:00
as I saw everyone away I was
11:06
like is this good? Or we did toy
11:06
we did tell her that codename
11:13
not Pushkin, but just did you
11:13
send him some some fullback that
11:17
plays for like spark Moscow I
11:17
was like I can't do that please
11:20
skin he's I was Popeye in and
11:20
you're not going to call your
11:23
cap on I should be Popeye fan
11:23
I'm gonna be Yeah, but please
11:27
keep an eye either at the French
11:27
Connection. Okay, Doyle audio.
11:32
Yeah, that's cool. But yeah,
11:32
pretty skin. I actually managed
11:36
as well. To get him a black and
11:36
white kind of winter for t
11:40
collar which is virtually
11:40
identical to like, snakes
11:43
trousers in the state. I thought
11:43
was cool. But yeah, he cuz he's
11:49
such a character we used to live
11:49
next to like a supermarket and a
11:53
pub. And he would just
11:53
nonchalantly walk round to the
11:58
supermarket. And he actually
11:58
figured out how to open the
12:03
magnetic doors. The Doors why he
12:03
wouldn't he would he just walked
12:08
in each sit under the bakery.
12:08
feigns for the bananas still
12:12
don't know what it was. That was
12:12
his thing. But they use a lock
12:15
him in the office. They loved
12:15
him there. People give him
12:17
treats and stuff. So going back
12:17
and forward by getting phone
12:21
calls at work, say your cat's in
12:21
the supermarket again. I'm gonna
12:27
tell you which one it is because
12:27
you know that's advertising.
12:30
Yeah, yeah, check out. Check it
12:30
out now if you want if they'd
12:36
Lucky me. So I've got in there.
12:36
And he just be sitting on one of
12:42
the chairs in their office.
12:42
Yeah. Yeah, cuz you've got a
12:47
pet, haven't you? Well, yeah, I
12:47
mean, people don't put as much
12:50
onus on having something that
12:50
I've caught. I've got a parrot.
12:53
The problem with parrots is I
12:53
mean, obviously I can understand
12:56
where people don't go for, for
12:56
birds, mainly. Because they're
13:00
not you can't cuddle them in the
13:00
kind of same way as you can dogs
13:03
and cats. They don't have that
13:03
but, and also, they bloody live
13:05
for a long time. So this little
13:05
bubble and probably outlive me
13:08
I've had in 21 years, so and
13:08
he's probably going to live too
13:11
easily. He's not a bigger
13:11
parent, but he's going to live
13:13
to about 40. So he's going to
13:13
outlive me basically, I know
13:16
there's a bit more bit, but it's
13:16
a bit sad to know that I might
13:19
have to put him into my will or
13:19
something. You know, I mean,
13:22
it's just like, sorry, what's
13:22
his name? Oh, he's nice foggy
13:26
after California either. upcycle
13:26
champion, but you know, ya know,
13:33
yeah, it's cool. But it was a
13:33
purchase on my pizza hardware
13:37
work. Don't get me wrong.
13:37
There's lots of benefits to
13:40
assess run through some of them.
13:40
I mean, I'll run through the
13:42
sort of some reasons that we
13:42
have pets and I mean, this isn't
13:45
going to be the same for all
13:45
pets, obviously. Like they keep
13:47
you fit. I can't see how my
13:47
parrot keeps me fit unless he
13:49
escapes, which he has done
13:49
before. And I'm chasing him
13:51
around. I think he's smashing
13:51
into Windows.
13:56
Do I mean cat parrot? I mean, my
13:56
parrot can come out and you can
14:00
sit there but I don't need to
14:00
unless he doesn't like me as
14:02
weird but it's me like you he
14:02
starts biting me and like you
14:06
know, like you don't like Yes,
14:06
exactly. So Star Wars scene back
14:08
to there. But the number one
14:08
reason people have pets is is a
14:12
keep you fit I mean dogs Yes,
14:12
you can understand it, you know
14:15
saying dogs need loads of
14:15
exercise. They make sure you're
14:17
never lonely. You know, you can
14:17
understand that a lot of people
14:20
especially people are widowed
14:20
may be retired or chosen to move
14:23
on to by the way. Yeah.
14:23
counterplay ski. The only reason
14:28
you can keep fit with piercing
14:28
because he's such a fat lump. is
14:32
like doing weights with him.
14:32
Like he actually does he lifts
14:35
more than you did he Exactly.
14:35
Yeah, you can lift him Yeah,
14:39
company. He couldn't give a
14:39
shit. Yeah, yeah, exactly. But I
14:44
know I know how much you adore
14:44
your cat and and obviously we'll
14:48
speak a bit more in a minute and
14:48
then expand on that but but
14:51
yeah, other reasons are they
14:51
lower your stress levels
14:54
apparently that's a no no, I was
14:54
gonna say you're you're chasing
14:58
around in the in the in the I
14:58
named supermarket in, in taking
15:04
on the world. Yeah, worried
15:04
about. It's like having a
15:07
teenage kid you're worried about
15:07
where are they at night? Come in
15:10
come? Yes,
15:11  Trev
no. I've got a tracker
15:11
yesterday. digitally trilite GPS
15:16
tracker. He's got a huge black
15:16
colour
15:20  Wayne
no worries we have to pay
15:20
for that everyday Exactly. Yes,
15:25
please madness I know it's
15:25
right. Yeah, this is it's like
15:28
having to chase as expensive as
15:28
having a child you can't go on
15:30
holiday when you want use all
15:30
these negatives so I like to be
15:32
the negative but the positives
15:32
outweigh and it proves it with
15:36
the numbers, but they can help
15:36
you make friends. I mean, I know
15:38
there's jobs, you know, you can
15:38
stand out in front of us and
15:40
your cat slightly sitting there
15:40
being stroked by you know,
15:43
hello, you know, when you're
15:43
sad, you're talking to someone
15:45
who's dogs especially I live in
15:45
a place where everyone's got a
15:48
dog you know, and yeah, of
15:48
course he knows when to get the
15:53
attention they want. He actually
15:53
sits there while he knows at
15:56
three o'clock. And I there's
15:56
kids walking past that will
15:59
Yeah, my attention. Yeah, just
15:59
sits there like Yeah. Okay, one
16:04
of the most amazing things that
16:04
I learned from a TV a little
16:07
while ago scientific
16:07
breakthroughs with with dogs,
16:09
for example, is they can be
16:09
trialling it now, I believe, but
16:13
they can be taught to smell out
16:13
cancer early on in patients.
16:17
Yeah, I've seen I've seen this.
16:17
It's amazing. And it's they've
16:21
actually saved lives because
16:21
they can smell more than some of
16:24
the machinery that that we can
16:24
produce. I don't know if it's
16:27
any better than the sort of
16:27
little micro robots that are now
16:30
floating around since we've had
16:30
the vaccine. Maybe that can do
16:33
the nanobots nanobots are
16:33
probably sold out but yeah, I'm
16:38
sorry. I know you're packing
16:38
sniffer kit bag. Yeah, that can
16:42
definitely sniffer kebabs in my
16:42
house with a kid Bab. Fishkin is
16:47
just like you're one of the best
16:47
Oh kids on the go, I don't know
16:52
about cats with smells I'm not
16:52
so sure that other senses don't
16:55
know but because they're still
16:55
cats are still in the
16:58
development have been mostly
16:58
wild still, aren't they? I mean
17:01
we're dogs have been totally
17:01
domesticated for what I
17:03
understand teaching kids
17:03
responsibility That's true. I
17:07
mean, the only thing is you keep
17:07
will go to you I mean again
17:10
we've spoke about this before
17:10
and we don't want to come across
17:12
preachy driven I haven't got
17:12
kids but with the experiences
17:15
that we understand, you know,
17:15
kids will say please can I have
17:19
a doggy young old take it out
17:19
every day Don't do that. They
17:22
don't ever two days they'll get
17:22
bored of it. You'll be doing it
17:24
clearing up all of its mess
17:24
everything else so don't fall
17:27
for that all one everyone we all
17:27
know that they can please let me
17:30
get me one for Christmas. I
17:30
don't know why they also like
17:33
Jiminy Cricket out of some sort
17:33
of Victorian dekins play but
17:37
please, sir, give me a cat.
17:37
Yeah. And they don't care. They
17:42
don't care. So don't fall for
17:42
that old chestnut. But it is
17:46
true. They make you feel safe
17:46
dogs obviously especially people
17:49
it's a known fact that thieves
17:49
will will will detect from
17:55
anyone's got dog especially I
17:55
don't know about cats so much
17:57
but give me your cat to be fair
17:57
to cats man the worst thing
18:02
about cats is they freak you
18:02
right out if we sitting there
18:06
watching TV and a cat will just
18:06
like look spice for like 10
18:13
minutes and you think what's he
18:13
looking at?
18:17  Unknown
You say like a ghost in
18:17
here cuz you slowly turn his
18:20
head he's probably not gonna fly
18:20
or something but you can't see
18:24
it
18:26  Wayne
he says some kind of
18:26
apparition in here the cat can
18:29
see freaky him Yeah, in the end
18:29
I'm putting him out. I'm like
18:34
you ain't freaking me out any
18:34
people. Everybody goes out I put
18:38
him out he probably gets the
18:38
other cat they go guys such as
18:41
soccer go sit there. freaked
18:41
out. Sorry yeah well yeah maybe
18:46
he's not doing the job that is
18:46
intended but there's all the
18:49
benefits to having the pets and
18:49
you know you can see I can see
18:53
what a better place she is a
18:53
safe for people that are lonely
18:56
haven't got anyone else to
18:56
family not rented the
18:58
responsibility of having eight
18:58
to 10 dogs because you're so
19:01
lonely well you would think I
19:01
would when you think I'd have
19:03
cats everywhere I'd be you know
19:03
got no friends got no got
19:07
nothing to do got no gunplay in
19:07
the mud what I'm summing up the
19:09
whole season here and I've
19:09
already been fine worms you know
19:14
go fall into house find antique
19:14
bottles with is that the other
19:17
but it's a hard life to have is
19:17
a hard life. But I just felt
19:21
this way. I know last time we
19:21
done an episode like this. We
19:24
kind of decided we weren't going
19:24
to do any kind of quiz that day.
19:28
But I know people get
19:28
disappointed when we leave out
19:31
test the guest and we haven't
19:31
got a guest this week. I've only
19:33
got you so
19:37  Trev

porch quite romantic. Yeah, I
19:51
was gonna say yes. Sounds fun
19:54
moment. Yeah. And he'd never
19:54
seen wine, obviously. You can
20:00
imagine that you pick white at a
20:00
crowd anyway. Basically a gay
20:03
pride. Song test the guest.
20:03
Yeah. In the Yeah. singing it to

20:25
ages. So yeah. Thank you for
20:25
that. Yeah, it made my day. If I
20:29
say so. Yeah. Trev. I don't
20:29
know. I mean, I didn't prepare a
20:32
whole new intro to a new segment

20:37
could, I could sing over the
20:37

20:48
questions on pace if you want.

Right? Well get ready for some
20:52
of this on your own this week.

21:07
You go okay after about 28
21:07

23:17
the mind though is so well done
23:20
there hate saying that. But
23:20
which DJ flicked his car onto
23:23
its side whilst apparently
23:23
trying to avoid a cat. There's
23:27
no multiple choice. Just go get
23:27
a DJ and it's not it's no
23:30
controversial 1970s ones.
23:30

23:36
Just a name? Nick Grimshaw, man.
23:36
You don't know who Nick right.
23:48
Okay, moving on. It's actually
23:48
just Nick if this is all catch
23:53
things. You should know these.
23:53
What was the name of Bill Sykes
23:56
dog in Oliver to audition? Okay,
23:56
obviously it's a dog but he's
23:59
just said that giving away What
23:59
was the name and I'll give you a
24:02
clue. What was the name of Bill
24:02
Sykes dog in Oliver Twist. Super
24:06
smashing marvellous. Great. I
24:06
thought you were gonna say Jim
24:14
Bowden and I was gonna do I
24:14
know. You messed up my joke. You
24:20
messed it up. Excuse me? Right?
24:20
I think they call this a lot.
24:25
The last one. You've proved
24:25
yourself to be slightly at that
24:28
anime quiz is true. What is a
24:28
female donkey called? And it's
24:33
nothing to do with things that
24:33
you're really thinking of. Now I
24:36
know that we view a female
24:36
donkey. Yeah. Well, you're just
24:42
being silly. I'm sure you're
24:42
being silly. I'm saying that's
24:46
what we're doing is wrong is
24:46
Rome. You know, this female
24:52
donkey is called a Jenny. So
24:52
Jenny, agenda Jenny. Jenny.
24:57
Jenny. Yeah. Wow. Gotta give you
24:57
one more. This is a bonus one to
25:01
redeem yourself for Margaret
25:01
Thatcher. How dare you? How dare
25:04
you slander the name of Maggie,
25:04
the iron woman? What is the term
25:09
used to describe when a cat rubs
25:09
the side of her head? on you? Or
25:12
on furniture? Is it tagging? Is
25:12
it beening? Is it Banting?
25:18
That's it. What was the second
25:18
one being? beanie? Is that your
25:27
answer? Yeah. Well, it'd be
25:27
funny if it was doggy, but he
25:33
said Banting Banting a term used
25:33
to describe when a cat rubs the
25:38
side of her head. Yeah, though,
25:38
though, though, we must say
25:42
these things don't get more
25:42
serious boy. Well, yeah, but
25:45
yeah, but Okay, I'll let you off
25:45
that one. We'll take that. And
25:50
so Trey, you know, to end it on
25:50
a different note, too. So, you
25:54
know, and the saddest part of
25:54
having the pets is, is obviously
25:58
like, you know, they're not
25:58
going to be around forever. Most
26:01
of them apart from my parrot,
26:01
unfortunately. So not going to
26:04
actually have that experience.
26:04
But he he'll be said, interview.
26:08
Yeah, exactly. We wish he could
26:08
tell me where it is. So why
26:12
don't you lock up? rankled old
26:12
scrote bag? Yeah, exactly. Look
26:18
at me. But the serious side of
26:18
it is obviously it's sometimes a
26:23
good lesson for kids. I mean,
26:23
there's a gateway animal isn't
26:26
there. The kids have like
26:26
hamsters and things guinea pigs,
26:29
they only last a couple of
26:29
years. You know, and the kid has
26:31
to go through and you obviously
26:31
depending on the kids age,
26:33
you'll tell them that they've
26:33
gone to heaven or just gone for
26:36
holiday for a long time or
26:36
whatever, you know, but
26:39
obviously, as you get older, it
26:39
can. It can kind of teach kids
26:43
about the sadness that we will
26:43
have to face in their life about
26:45
loss and things like that. And I
26:45
know that obviously, your cat
26:48
you had before it was called El
26:48
Diablo Funny enough, so he's
26:52
probably having a great time.
26:52
And to be fair, wherever he is
26:54
now. But I know that obviously,
26:54
it was a tough time for you when
26:59
you when you lost your cat. So I
26:59
wondered if you didn't mind
27:03
talking about it. Trev just
27:03
express how it what it was like
27:05
to you?
27:06
Yeah, I look back and it's just
27:06
like, Yeah, he he was so old. He
27:10
was 20. Well, and you could just
27:10
see our scene and that he was he
27:14
was sitting, I come down for
27:14
breakfast before I went to work,
27:18
and sat on the couch eating the
27:18
cereal. When I looked at him.
27:21
And he's looked up at me, he was
27:21
like, no. And he tried to kind
27:25
of walk across the couch or sit
27:25
on my lap. And he kind of
27:29
stumbled and fell on the floor.
27:29
So I've mainly picked him up,
27:33
picked him up, but he was so
27:33
kind of frail. And I sort of
27:37
held him in my arm with his
27:37
head, sort of looking at my
27:41
face. And I just watched these
27:41
eyes closed. And honestly, the
27:50
hell I saw his little chest kind
27:50
of stop breathing. And like the
27:54
hell I let out like emotionally
27:54
was awful. You could hear it
27:58
probably absolutely devastated
27:58
me. It was just it was like some
28:02
kind of movie and yeah, it was
28:02
just like, you'd never be
28:06
prepared for that. Can you you
28:06
can never know. And I look back.
28:09
You know, it was the best way
28:09
for to lose. Yeah. And loved pet
28:14
if that makes sense. Yeah. Any
28:14
other way. There's so many awful
28:18
ways it can happen. Yes, but
28:18
that was just lovely. He was so
28:23
caught as you say, you know that
28:23
when I moved in on my own in my
28:28
flat? I am It was me and he your
28:28
companion? I Oh, yeah. And I
28:33
actually got his name tattooed
28:33
on my back. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah,
28:39
that's the story of that no one
28:39
can take away from that. You
28:42
have a call names for your cats.
28:42
You know? What cat one gonna be
28:45
called El Diablo. You know?
28:45
Yeah. It's about though, isn't
28:49
it? Exactly. And you know, that,
28:49
you know, you've just thanks for
28:54
that drove you seriously
28:54
because, you know, it's hard to
28:56
talk about these things. You
28:56
know, people really do care
28:58
about their pets as part of
28:58
their family. Anyone who is
29:01
experiencing loss of a pet, you
29:01
know, do understand that there
29:04
are resources out there that can
29:04
help you in the same way as
29:07
there are for people, you know,
29:07
family members, you've lost. The
29:10
PDSA is a good resource for all
29:10
things. Yeah. So last and
29:15
looking after them or what you
29:15
want to know about having. If
29:19
you've been taken into the same
29:19
vet all those years? Yeah, they
29:23
must be. They must be I put you
29:23
in contact with someone.
29:26
Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. And I
29:26
understand I found that getting
29:31
another pet or kind of pets as
29:31
we've gotten our two cats. You
29:38
find that that helps. He was out
29:38
and never replaced. And they
29:42
never replace different
29:42
different personalities. Yeah,
29:45
yeah. Yeah, it gets you. Yeah.
29:45
So you know, as I said, Well, we
29:51
get you get used to that. The
29:51
Life goes on. Unfortunately,
29:53
it's part of the world The world
29:53
does go on. You got to start
29:55
living it again. It's the same
29:55
when you lose people, isn't it
29:58
you unfortunately It sounds sad
29:58
and everything else, but you
30:02
have to just get on with it and
30:02
try and make the most of the
30:05
time we have. We've spoke about
30:05
that already. So we don't need
30:07
to go on about that. But yeah,
30:07
onto a brighter note, I suppose
30:12
trip indices if you enjoyed
30:12
season two, it's been great. And
30:15
I've enjoyed it. I haven't
30:15
enjoyed your company because
30:18
it's a No, that doesn't get any
30:18
better or yours doesn't either.
30:21
To be fair, but that's just me.
30:21
Yeah, no, no, no, no, no,
30:22
because you've already said it.
30:22
But we're sort of stuck together
30:25
now. But like that film like
30:25
that fairly diverse film. Yeah,
30:29
stuck on really quick story
30:29
about that. actually walked out
30:33
on that. Did you? cinema? Yeah,
30:33
I went to see it after work. I
30:36
used to live in a cinema. I used
30:36
to go to the cinema after work.
30:40
And I thought it was so lousy.
30:40
I'd have walked out man, you
30:42
feel quite lucky. Now, and I
30:42
think I've watched again, and
30:47
he's quite he's got moves. He
30:47
got better. Right move. So they
30:49
were kind of fairly nice. Yeah,
30:49
exactly. Yeah, thanks. Sure.
30:55
That's cool. Yeah, thanks. Yeah,
30:55
we one day, I'm just hanging
30:57
around hoping one day you'll say
30:57
something nice, you know, but
31:02
yeah, well, that's not likely to
31:02
happen. We may use it, but you
31:05
know, is what it is stuck with
31:05
each other. But you know,
31:08
hopefully, you'll be here for
31:08
season three, where you're not,
31:10
again, I'm not referencing you
31:10
pass in a while. I mean, I don't
31:13
wanna have to go through that. I
31:13
know, that's two weeks in a row.
31:18
Yeah, exactly. Sorry. I don't
31:18
mean it like that. And, you
31:22
know, some people would say
31:22
that's putting the out there to
31:25
the stars. And I'm trying to
31:25
make it happen. I started as a
31:28
token of season three. Yes. And
31:28
I think we were thinking as
31:33
well, we've got plans for it.
31:33
But if any of you guys that
31:36
listen, and would like to, you
31:36
know, come up with something.
31:40
Otherwise, we know yes. And we
31:40
construct to you, of course,
31:43
yeah. But you know, you the
31:43
listeners are all part of the
31:45
experience for us, you know, and
31:45
a part of it, we try and
31:48
interact as much as we can, we'd
31:48
like to do. What I'm saying is
31:52
if you mess you just get we
31:52
don't whine. If there's enough
31:56
of them, then it's obviously
31:56
gonna happen in it.
31:58
Well, yeah. Is it basically
31:58
you're putting out an
32:00
application for my job, right?
32:00
Yeah. Okay. Yeah, for somebody
32:03
to replace me. So there you go.
32:03
There it is straight from the
32:06
horse's mouth. My job is up for
32:06
grabs. If you want to have a go
32:10
at that Vegas trip. This is
32:10
ending on the end of the last
32:15
last season. It was going Oh,
32:15
what you're going to do you love
32:17
this one. You're just trying to
32:17
out me. Not in there, that kind
32:19
of way. But I feel like this has
32:19
been a training scheme or yts
32:25
for me. Now I've got Joe Rogan's
32:25
waiting. game. We were talking
32:32
about that as well. I mean,
32:32
you've mentioned spoke about it,
32:35
that we've got a few sponsors
32:35
lined up. Yeah. We have got
32:38
we're doing episode sponsorship.
32:38
And we're doing podcast
32:42
sponsorship. Obviously, podcast
32:42
sponsorship means the whole
32:44
shebang. branding on the on the
32:44
episodes and branding on the
32:49
website and on all the
32:49
experiences, episode branded
32:52
means you can just for a small
32:52
amount, sponsor an episode,
32:55
you'll get an opportunity. Yeah,
32:55
you'll get an advert. there is
32:59
opportunity. now know is you
32:59
know, as you say, there is
33:04
topics that we have that
33:04
obviously would suit certain
33:07
products or service or whatever
33:07
it is, but you can choose Yeah,
33:13
but exactly. To be honest, I'd
33:13
like that kind of irony, we
33:18
think. Oh, yeah. Man, we did a
33:18
lot of viagara company. Yeah,
33:23
well, I could just, hopefully,
33:23
we'll get some freebies out of
33:25
it. Because I've got no, you
33:25
might need it. I do. Yeah. But
33:31
are we talking about that now?
33:31
40 off what was off air, but
33:34
it's just the therapy sessions
33:34
we have after we finished. So
33:38
anything like that. As usual? If
33:38
you don't go to the website,
33:42
there's information on there I
33:42
am ello podcast.com. Thanks for
33:46

appreciate the guests we've had
33:52
on there. Yeah, thank you. Yeah,
33:55
we've out the gate again. I've
33:55
loved it. It's been much harder
33:58
work than the first season and
33:58
it's not I'm not gonna say
33:59
anything detrimental to you
33:59
dread because, you know, that's
34:02
just tit for tat and I'm not
34:02
into that. I I'm nice to you
34:05
always. I've developed you into
34:05
the next Joe Rogan. And you
34:08
know, you won't even have me as
34:08
your management is terrible, but
34:12
it is what it is. Onto next. The
34:12
next things we're hoping to have
34:16
more segments and more of it you
34:16
know, I'll probably be too lazy
34:19
because all this editing Lark
34:19
join edit trips, like grunts and
34:22
groans out of every episode is
34:22
just becoming a chore but an all
34:26
the abuse To be honest, I had a
34:26
whole half hour episode of abuse
34:29
the other day I thought, Well, I
34:29
better just crap the whole thing
34:31
out but you said like, give me
34:31
give me What for? I do seriously
34:36
listen to it when I'm in bed.
34:36
Listen to your voice give me

dirty, but terrible, but in
