Sad really

Shemie from Nawton

I expect to be attacked for my honest view on this issue but to those who do have a differing opinion about their "wild and free ranging pet", don't waste your time trying to convince me otherwise.
So many missing, lost cats. I feel sorry for them.
Much loved, missing; usually comes home, hasn't.
The responsibility of every pet owner is to keep their charges safe, out of harms way.
If a person chooses to have a pet, safe guard it.
Spay or neuter the pet. Care for it, love it and contain it appropriately.
Law changes aren't needed, common sense is.

Walks before talks for new mayor

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Morning neighbours,

Hamilton's newly minted mayor Paula Southgate "didn't become mayor to overturn the apple cart and bring all my own unique projects to the table".

Instead, she's going to take a couple of days to unwind and plan before getting stuck in.

What do you think of the election results with a new mayor and councillors?

WATCH: Rotterdam's floating cows: the future of farming?

The Team from Play Stuff

Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?

These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.
