Free to a GREAT home

Sherrianna from Central-West Invercargill

I am relocating and need to re home my cat. Her name is Bea (said like bee), and she is 7 this July. She is healthy, and never been to the vet because of this. She is friendly once she warms up to you, but doesn't like strangers, ie when friends come round she will run away and/or hide. She is also very vocal and likes being talked to. She will come when called and will sit when told- though this may take a few times of saying it. She likes to cuddle/sleep next to you on the bed, and will snuggle by the fire in winter. She likes to hunt and play and be outside. She is house trained, micro chipped and knows how to use a catflap. She comes with:
Some food and food bowls
Her next flea treatment
A scratching post
Some toys
A pussydo litter box with litter and scooper
2 beds

I don't have a carry cage for her, so you will need to drop one off for me to put her in.
I want to give her to a loving home to someone who will learn all her quirks/likes/dislikes as I have, and will give her the time and attention she needs. Please call me on 0278464582 if interested.

Guide for Carers

The Team from Office for Seniors

The Ministry of Social Development has recently updated the Guide for Carers, a valuable resource for those who care for family, whānau, āiga or friends with a health condition, a disability, an injury, or a physical or mental illness.

It covers a range of topics such as financial help, assessing needs, getting help at home and being able to take a break from caring.

The Guide for Carers is available online now: bit.ly...

For more information about resources like this and other advice, read our SuperSeniors newsletter: bit.ly...

Can you help?

Georgia Weaver Reporter from Southland Times

Armed with a photo of the 24 men who made their way to the South Island, Fred Olde Olthof is hoping to reconnect with the families of New Zealand’s first Dutch migrants.

Fred Olde Olthof, 92, was 22 when he arrived in Southland, having taken a four-day trek from Auckland to Christchurch, before travelling to Dunedin and on to Invercargill, by train.

Can you help us find the other people in the photograph?
