SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Marge

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet Marge, who was once a stray.

Meet Marge, who was once a stray.

"I am a very talkative girl who is always up for a chat with my special human. I have a lot to say, especially when you pat me! I'm also very affectionate, with a particular affinity for head butts, pats, and being picked up. Being slow and steady in your interactions with me is really important, as I can get nervous and unsettled when approached too quickly or intensely.
I'm not your typical lap cat during the day, but at night I want nothing more than to be by your side, whether that's sleeping on you or near you. I love bean bags, and temptation treats (in moderation of course!). I'm not always down to play, but when I'm in the mood, I love ping pong balls and stringy toys!
I'm looking for a quiet home with indoor/outdoor access, and that gives me space and independence when I need it. I would prefer a home without other animals or children as my mood can sometimes change quickly if I feel threatened or am unsure of my surroundings."

"I love birding – some days are just filled with hope and potential. I set out in the rain hoping to maybe see a few kākā/brown parrots or maybe snap a few tui on the right angle, possibly come across some rotund kererū for comedic relief. But some days are blessed with a little extra and the unexpected. Today I came across an unbanded pair of kākāriki/red-crowned parakeets (Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae) fossicking in the undergrowth, then feeding in the trees – blissfully unaware they are relicts of better times. Hopefully proof-positive they are spreading in Wellington and the Hutt Valley. Wellington Botanic Gardens."

Petone's seaside art gallery is proud to exhibit new paintings by internationally acclaimed watercolourist and one of New Zealands favourite artist’s, Jacky Pearson, for another popular solo exhibition.



Jacky’s fascination with light and atmosphere is one of the major driving forces behind her paintings and although she has recently moved from Eastbourne to the Wairarapa, she still loves painting our Wellington. Jackie's inspiring and atmospheric paintings of the Wellington city and local region magically draw the viewer into each painting and allows them to linger a while to re live and experience everyday scenes we know and love so well, whether in fine or inclement weather.


Jacky is a multi award winning professional artist, not only widely popular at home in New Zealand but she is also an internationally recognised artist and tutor and her works are held in private and public collections both here and overseas.

Be sure to check out the other art on display created by over 300 favourite New Zealand artists and unique selection if NZ made gifts.
