Sweet tabby girl for adoption

Karen from Cust

Hello,

Hello,
I am an adorable little tabby girl about 8 months old. I am inquisitive and always interested in what is going on around me, and my foster mum tells me I’m a clever little girl because I have already learned how to ‘hi five’ for treats... I love Temptations very much!
For the last three months I have been learning about people, as I was found with my brother on a farm during the lockdown.

Now I am looking for a home with a loving person to take care of me, who has plenty of time to spend playing with me. I would like a home where someone is home for much of the day because I love company. I have a very sweet temperament, and love to be patted and caressed, but because I wasn’t handled as a young kitten I don’t like to be picked up yet. So my foster mum thinks I would be happiest in a home with just one or two adults, especially if there are no other pets.

I am perfectly happy being an indoor cat, I have my own bean bag in the sun where I can watch the birds feeding at the bird feeder or nap as it suits me. As I am from the country, I’m not used to cars, so a country home or somewhere with very little traffic would be best. If you are looking for a sweet little companion (and have a good supply of Temptations :) please contact my foster mum.

I tested negative for feline aids and as I am in favour of family planning I had my op a while ago, as well as being microchipped to keep me safe, and have had all my vaccinations and flea and worm treatments. My vet says I'm a healthy little jellybean :)

Any condition considered. Must be able to be disassembled due to backyard only having a small gate to get it through.

Mass tree felling blindsides visitors to North Canterbury walking track

A popular area of Waimakariri’s regional park has been cleared of trees, upsetting visitors to North Canterbury’s Ashley/Rakahuri River who knew nothing of the plan.

The regional council undertook the work, and Waimakariri District Council mayor Dan Gordon said the first he knew of it was once the trees had been chopped down.

However, ECan regional lead river engineer Shaun McCracken said the district council had been informed, although there had been no public notification or consultation because it was routine work. The tree-felling would “improve the resilience of Rangiora and Kaiapoi to the threat of flooding from the Ashley River’’, he said.
