Pet of the Day: Siam the klepto-cat

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.

Volunteers Needed.

Sarah from Carterton District

Digital Seniors is looking for volunteers to help seniors with their digital devices.

You don’t have to be a tech wizard; we are looking for people with a working knowledge of how the average phone or tablet works (and can explain it to others). Above all, we’re looking for someone kind, patient, and who wants to really make a difference in the life of a senior.

Volunteering with us is very rewarding and is a fantastic way to meet and get to know some of the amazing seniors in our community as well as joining a very special team of volunteers.

We’d need you for a few hours a week – we need volunteers to help in the following locations.
Masterton (at the Library) – Wednesdays from 10 am – 12 pm
A Masterton Rest Home– Fridays from 10:30 am – 12 pm
A Carterton Rest Home – Monday’s from 10 am – 12 pm

If you would like more information please call 0800 373 646 or email

A gaggle of Digital Seniors coaches. Help seniors and join our fabulous team!
