GOOD NEWS. 5 DAYS LATER THE 5th KITTEN IS BACK WITH ITS SIBLINGS. Just in time before the rain came.

To The Kitten Owner

Who, after caring (using that term loosely) for your 5? kittens for about 8 weeks decided to dump them in a bushy corner of Normandale Road.
(Apologies if these kittens were actually 'lost' but the nature of where we are finding them, we came to the conclusions they were recently dumped. They have been supplied food in the bush and cared for once they have been caught and can now be found at the Petone vets.)

Back to the first assumption.

For the time it took you to drive up Normandale road, you could have dropped them at the vets /pet shop or a local cat rescue and that would be the end of the story.
But nooooo.
Instead you chose to dump them!
You disrupted 5 people's dinner that night that cared enough for your kittens to go home and eat at 10pm before heading back out to try to catch some more of your kittens.
Now 8 different people over 2 nights and days so far have been trying to catch them.
We had a lovely resident supply cat food at 10pm at night after we caught the first 2 (they were starving), plus a late night trip to the supermarket for kitty litter and more food supplies.

Some of the people aren't even cat lovers that are looking for your kittens. They like animals and don't want to risk a kitten becoming feral in an environment we share with a lot of native bird and lizard life, or it becoming a Tom cat and annoying the neighbours family cats.

4 very friendly kittens have now been caught and dropped down to the Petone Vet clinic where they will get the love and care needed before being rehomed.
We are pretty sure at least one kitten still remains in the bush.

Next time, please think of others and your kittens and take them to a proper place to rehome.

Kind regards
Residents of Normandale Road.

7 Window Treatment Trends for 2021

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean (The Curtain Store)

Wondering what the new year holds in store for interiors? Here are some of the window treatment trends we’ll be keeping an eye on in 2021.

Wondering what the new year holds in store for interiors? Here are some of the window treatment trends we’ll be keeping an eye on in 2021.

Warm neutrals: More than ever after 2020, we’re looking at our homes as tranquil retreats from a chaotic world. Calming, neutral tones take the lead - and although greys and whites continue to be popular, interior palettes are warming up. For contemporary neutrals consider colours like cream, oatmeal, sand and taupe.

Fear not though - neutrals don’t have to mean boring! Play on light and dark variations, subtle patterns and layering textures to keep things interesting.

Maximalism: In complete contrast to calming neutrals, maximalism is all about embracing clashing patterns, saturated colours and dynamic interior combinations.


Forget “less is more” - be bold and bring a little fun into your home this year!


Smart technology: Open and close your window treatments at the touch of a button with a remote or mobile app - or add them to your home automation system. Motorisation is taking off in Kiwi homes and curtains and blinds are no exception.

With an app you can pre-set your window treatments to open or close on a timer or do it instantly from your phone - even when you’re not at home.
