Lost cat

Renee from Blenheim

My little cat went outside on the evening of August 31st from Arthur Street in Blenheim and hasn't come home since. I'm desperate to have her back and I'd really appreciate it if you could keep an eye out for her. Her name is Dumpling and she's a tabby. Her tail goes all the way over her back when it's up, she's a bit timid and not very bright, but she's my heart.

Dumpling is 18 months old now, she's microchipped and de-sexed. She has a very round sounding meow. She's a kind of yellow possum-coloured tabby cat with spots on her belly. If you've been feeding a cat that sounds like this, who's been around for the last few weeks, I'd really, really appreciate it if you could get in touch, or catch her and take her to a vet or the SPCA.

If you've had a tabby cat pass away on your property in the central Blenheim area I'd really like to be able to put her body to rest in the garden that she loves so much.

Please help me find her. Thank you.

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.
