"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.

Dancing has so many beneficial effects on the brain that it is now being used to treat people with Parkinson’s disease, which affects about 1 in 500 Kiwis.
“Motion is lotion, getting people moving is really important,” dance leader and physiotherapist Rachel Horwell​ said.
What do you do to keep fit and stimulate your brain?

Affectionally is known as 'the poor man's Spitfire', these aircraft were used for decades by a number of Air Forces to train pilots. Many exist today around the world in civilian ownership, including around 12 in New Zealand. We will have at least 3 examples on display, including the very aircraft that Prince Philip learned to fly in.

The Kittyhawk Cafe will be open and we can offer joyrides in 1940s vintage open-cockpit Tiger Moth biplanes.

This event is weather permitting.

Masterton (at the Library) – Wednesdays from 10 am – 12 pm
