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.

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.

Not only is Insulation a great way at keeping your home warm and energy efficient, but it can also help reduce noise travelling through your home!
The dense structure of Insulation helps absorb both airborne and impact noise throughout the home.

Airborne noise is noise that travels throughout the air, such as traffic, TV noise, dogs barking and voices. Impact noise is vibrations that are carried through the house, such as footsteps, washing machine vibrations etc.

Fiberglass and wool insulation are the best types of insulation for reducing airborne and impact noise due to their many fibrous layers.

You can see our full range of insulation on our website:

Overnight someone jemmied open the side window of my wee van and stole my portable mobility scooter. As you can imagine l am incredibly distressed at losing my transport. The battery was inside charging so It will be of no use to them and l imagine they may dump it so l'd be really grateful if everyone could keep an eye out or if they could let me know if they see it for sale. I live on Gloucester street near Woodham road and the van was parked outside my house. It's an older white Toyota hiace so
I'd also be grateful if anyone who saw anything unusual last night could let me know. Many thanks. I have added a photo of the scooter although the pedals on mine are slightly different.
Have also posted this on the crime page.

Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.
