SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Chewie

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Chewie the rabbit.
"I came into SPCA with a damaged eye beyond repair. The wonderful vet team couldn't save it, so I had an operation to have it removed. It hasn't slowed me down at all, you just have to be aware that I can’t see you approaching me so please don't startle me.… View more

"I came into SPCA with a damaged eye beyond repair. The wonderful vet team couldn't save it, so I had an operation to have it removed. It hasn't slowed me down at all, you just have to be aware that I can’t see you approaching me so please don't startle me.
I would love to be a single indoor bunny where I get all the human attention. I am a clean boy and will go into my large litter tray for toileting. I love gentle pats on my head and sometimes come up to you for treats. I regularly binkie around super fast, and when I'm tired I do bunny flops as I am a happy boy.
I love space and the outdoors so I will need a large grassy area with a weatherproof hutch for outside during the day. My indoor area must be big enough for me to spend the day and night comfortably. My caregivers ask that rabbits always come inside at night, to be part of the family and to keep me safe. I could go to a home with friendly cats as I've met some before."

Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.
Tell us what you think and if you do not want your comments used put NFP.

Hi Neighbour,

We’re all pretty well-versed in securing our homes when we head out the door to work, the shops, or a walk around the block.

Although no one is immune - don't waste another minute worrying that your business might become a target. Instead, get clued up on a few easy steps you can take to keep yourself and your business safe.

Why not give your business a cyber security risk assessment or ensure you have secured your website - it’s simple and we can help.

Digital Boost is here to guide you through protecting yourself online - doing so may save you a lot of time and stress in the future. We've got simple-to-follow videos on everything from software updates to password authentication and phishing.

Safeguarding your business is time well spent, so arm yourself with the knowledge today!
