My Simple Thing...

Chris from Aranui

Waking up this morning to our new rescue kittens. On Tuesday we adopted these three gorgeous triplet kittens - 2 boys and 1 Princess (Beaux Bear, Theo'dorable, and Princess Lilac).
Their mum was killed by a car when they were tiny kittens and they were half hand raised and half surrogate fed by another mum cat who had weaned her own kittens. Initially they were from a litter of 6 - 1 died, and the other 2(Winter and Ru) can be visited at the Catnap Cafe in Christchurch. These are among the first kittens in the world to be completely cured of FIP after 6 months of daily injections with some ground breaking medication.
Prior to that it was my guitar collection.

The unpleasant smell wafting from the treatment plant could “unfortunately last for some time,” the Christchurch City Council said in a statement.

The odour would continue until the treatment biomass was healthy, and it could take several months for the biomass to regrow, it said. Continue reading here.
