Meet Lavender - she is a 7-year-old Main coon (Silver tortie) who is currently at a temporary foster home for the Waikato Animal Outreach Trust.
Lavender is looking for a quiet home in a foster to adopt arrangement, she has been a very independent outside cat for the last 2 years and needs to trust humans again, she is a hider and needs a patient person in her life to be her companion - someone who has the time to spend with her - retired/semi-retired working from home etc with no children or dogs, she would suit an older person or couple.
In her current foster home she has responded to pats and a bit of chin tickling so is making progress

Anyone interested in providing Lavender a home please email Steph at waikatoanimaloutreach@gmail.com with some details about yourself, your family, and the home you can provide Lavender.

Lavender will need to be kept inside for quite a long time and taken to vet appointment as needed in Hamilton.

Lavender also needs a teeth clean and one or two teeth out which could cost several hundreds of dollars, we have undertaken many elective surgeries in the last 18months and our vet bill is rocketing - we need your help to get Lavenders teeth done so she can feel a million dollars.

Donations can be made directly to Vetora (Collins Road, Hamilton) or to our Op Shop at the Dinsdale shopping Centre and to our bank account:

ANZ 06 0225 0190554 00

ref : Lavender

If you need a receipt for tax purposes, please email Steph with your details.

Thank you

Hi Hamilton,

Does roading infrastructure need an upgrade in your suburb?

Some Hamilton drivers are performing dangerous manoeuvres directly in front of schools, abusing parking wardens and running red lights.

Hamilton City Councillors Sarah Thomson​ and Mark Bunting​ say inconsiderate and dangerous driving around schools is a city-wide problem – and it appears to be getting worse.

“Essentially people are driving and acting like maniacs around schools during the drop-off and pick-up times. People are parking on yellow lines right in front of crossings, or even sometimes on crossings. Drivers are parking right on cycleways and then do dangerous manoeuvres when they pull out,” Thomson said.

Traffic data shows red light running peaks at 9am and 3pm in the city - traditionally around the start and finish of the school day, respectively.

Community advocacy groups have suggested several solutions to curb irresponsible driving behaviour including having reliable bus services along popular commuting routes and safe cycle lanes.

Meet Pippa, she came in to us for a dental, not because she required one but as a preventative measure.❤️

X-ray’s were taken to ensure nothing was going on underneath the surface, revealing everything was healthy. Her teeth were then scaled and polished and as you can see it made quite a difference.

Not all cats and dogs are so lucky, it’s estimated that without proper dental care 80% of dogs will show signs of oral disease by the age of three.🐕🐈‍⬛

❤️Providing a good diet - a dry dental food is best as it helps scrape the plaque off the teeth when eaten.
❤️Brushing your pets teeth - check out the oral hygiene kits we have in the clinic, with poultry flavoured toothpaste!
❤️Dental Chews - like Veggiedent can help to control tartar and freshen breath.

Get your pets teeth checked at their next visit or call our reception team to book in for an oral health check up on 07 8492963.Remember prevention is better than cure.🙂

❤️“Your Pet Will Thank You For It!”❤️
