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.

New Zealanders are locking down their cats, for good

The Team Reporter from The Press

New Zealand is a nation of cat lovers, and increasingly – at least anecdotally – we’re keeping them inside.

Owners say welfare and conservation concerns are the main drivers; experts are cautious not to say too much, and cats are silent on the issue thus far.

What's worse — keeping a cat indoors 24/7, or letting it roam free where it will hunt birds, and possibly be injured?

Garapa Decking timber

Kylee from Avonside - Dallington

Morning, I have tried a couple of timber yards and unfortunately they are out of stock. Thought I would try on here and see if anyone had built a deck lately and has Garapa timber offcuts I can buy. Looking for anything from 200mm - 1 meter in length. Cheers Kylee
