UPDATE: No detectable microchip and probably female. Was so frightened at the vets that I thought it best to get her home as quickly as possible. Has been sleeping in a shed at the bottom of the property during the day and only comes up to the house at dusk, and disappears with the dawn.
This long haired, probably male, cat has been hanging around my place in Smith Street, Woolston, for at least 3 weeks now. It's taken me this long to win its trust enough to take a reasonable photo of it. He's helping himself to my cats' food and sleeping on the "spare" bed on the dryer at night. I haven't been able to catch him yet to get him to the vet to be checked for a microchip, but hope someone might recognise him and let me know whether he's a bludger and not a genuine stray.

Bowel cancer can strike at any age. Each year about 3,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with the disease and more than 1,200 will die. That’s as many as breast and prostate cancer combined. But it is treatable – and beatable – if detected early enough.
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
