Our bengal cat was killed by a dog (Hills Road)

Carolynne from Parklands - Marshlands

Our beautiful bengal cat Kevin was Killed by a dog on Sunday 22/8/21, someone had placed him on the side of the road on Monday morning between 6 and 7 am, as we had been searching, so we would think he was hit by a car. We had our vet do a post mortem that morning and he had multiple bites and massive crush injuries to his chest which punctured his lungs. We live at 800 hills road (prestons road end). Kevin was mostly an inside cat, he never ventured far and our home is down a long long drive, he was raised with big dogs and sadly was the kindest gentle cat who loved everyone and didn’t deserve this. It would have to be a big dog as Kevin was a big boy and weighed almost 8kgs. This post is just for information incase your cat goes missing in the area.

‘It’s not a shed’, say landlords after one-bedroom property provokes ire online

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

It’s been branded a “glammed-up garden shed”, but a $420 per week one-bedroom Christchurch property will be snapped up by the end of the week, say the owners.

The newly-built 42-square-metre home in Nayland St, Sumner, is close to the shops and two blocks from the beach.

But some locals questioned the weekly rental cost after the Trade Me listing was shared on the suburb's community Facebook page. Continue reading here.
