Hi all,
I’m looking for anyone who’s cat or knows of someone who’s cat is having/had kittens.
We are desperately looking for a new companion for my mother in law. After losing her last girl after 20yrs together a few years back she is finally ready to love another wee one again 💕 unfortunately we can’t afford the $200 plus it costs to adopt one through the SPCA. We would love to see her with a wee companion again as she is now in her early 70’s and on her own. The kitten would be going to an adoring owner who will care and love them endlessly! If you know anyone please message me.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,it is much appreciated and I’m hopeful that a perfect match is out there 🤞

Kylie.

Fun with numbers - local elections

Shirish Paranjape from Shirish Paranjape, Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board

I was playing with some numbers, so thought I will share here - for those keen. This is just for fun, not a scientific analysis!

All three councillors from Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood received in excess of 70% votes; hence clear margin over rivals. On the other hand, the closest race was in Halswell where the two top candidates have 3756 and 3580 votes (less than 200 margin).

Cr. Aaron Keown got more votes as a Council candidate (5309) than as a Community Board candidate (4605). On the other hand, Cr. Catherine Chu got less votes as a Council Candidate (2392) than as a Community Board candidate (2779).

Perhaps Gamal Fouda (Community Board - Riccarton) is the 'luckiest' candidate - getting elected with 'just' 1113 votes. This is because the top ranked Community Board candidate also won as a Councillor, hence 'vacated' the Community Board member seat.

Christchurch had 41.07% voter return. The wards with highest voter turnout are: Banks Peninsula (52.7%), Cashmere (48.85%) and Fendalton (47.57%); while the least turnout was at Linwood (33.23%), Central (33.43%), Riccarton (35.30%).
