Hi
I'm on the lookout for a female kitten.
I know kitten season has basically finished, but just in case there are any out there.
I have a 6month kitten and a 4 year old cat who would love another sister to join our family.
We have all the toys, adventures and love needed, waiting for our new family member.
If not already desexed we will do it as soon as she is of age/size. She will be regularly vaccinated and wormed, just like her cat siblings to be are.
I am looking at rescues also as our current fur family are from rescues.
Thanks.

GOVT. REBATES FOR EV'S & HYBRID VEHICLES

I am curious to know if those rebates and incentives would be enough to make you change from internal combustion to EV or Hybrid.
Personally, it doesn't offer anywhere enough for me to even consider. I believe their offer is pathetic and won't allow many to change because of the cost factors plus that type of vehicle is only in its infancy and there are many unknowns and limitations to be ironed out, let alone the extremely limited charging network.
I am sure one of the Press/Stuff journalists will put up a more comprehensive article.

NZTA license renewal scam circulating

A new email scam impersonating the NZTA is being sent around telling vehicle owners their licenses are due.

The email directs the recipient to renew the funds through clicking a 'Renew Now' button at the bottom corner of the email. It then takes the individual to fake website that gets them to fill in personal details.

CERT NZ, the government authority responsible for cyber security said in a tweet, that anyone who receives this email should report it directly to Waka Kotahi (NZTA).

How to spot a phishing scam:
- NZTA will only send an email through if an individual has contacted them first.
- Email addresses will always end in @nzta.govt.nz, @enews.nzta.govt.nz or @reply.nzta.govt.nz.
- The email may be missing specific details that the NZTA will have on file: such as your plate number, the date your vehicle license is due and vehicle make and model.
- Hover over buttons and links to see if the pop-up will take you to a genuine government (.govt.nz) website

Neighbourly will update this message as further information comes to hand.

Hi neighbours,

An 81-year-old volunteer has a message for the thief who snatched her car while she was out delivering hot lunches to the elderly and disabled – it could be your loved one left starving.

Widow Myra Brown, who donates to her time to the Meals of Wheels service, was dropping off food to a disabled woman in Woolston in Christchurch about 11am on Monday.

The service delivers meals to people who struggle to cook themselves, with volunteer drivers organised by the Red Cross.

When she returned minutes later, her white 2007 Suzuki Crossover was gone.

Christchurch council removes 840 rubbish bins from parks, adds 100 'smart bins'

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

More than 200 Christchurch parks will be left without rubbish bins when the city council finishes removing 840 of them across the city.

About 100 “smart” bins will be installed instead, but 211 “low-use” neighbourhood parks will have their bins taken away and not returned.

More than 200 Christchurch parks will be left without rubbish bins when the city council finishes removing 840 of them across the city.

About 100 “smart” bins will be installed instead, but 211 “low-use” neighbourhood parks will have their bins taken away and not returned.

The smart bins are bigger and are equipped with sensor technology that provides the council’s maintenance contractor with daily information on how full each bin is.

Council head of parks Andrew Rutledge​ said the data meant the contractor only needed to send crews out to empty the bins when required, saving time and money.

In areas without bins, the council encouraged people to take any rubbish home with them, and put it in their red wheelie bin.
