SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Marge

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

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 … View more
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."

The Homeless situation in Kapiti including Otaki

Donna from Otaki District

I have a plan brewing in my head and would like to get feedback before I do any further planning. The idea is to get a petition of sorts together stating how bad and urgent the Housing Crisis is here in Kapiti - Otaki. There is no way any houses whether transitional, emergency or permanent housing … View moreI have a plan brewing in my head and would like to get feedback before I do any further planning. The idea is to get a petition of sorts together stating how bad and urgent the Housing Crisis is here in Kapiti - Otaki. There is no way any houses whether transitional, emergency or permanent housing is going to be built or available for at least 3 - 4 months at least if even in that time. So we need to really highlight the dire emergency of people who have nowhere to go. Once we get lots of signatures on paper I am thinking of a hikoi (march) from Otaki to the office of Terisa Ngobi in Paraparaumu. I would notify her of our intentions and hope to get either/or both Jacinda Adern and Megan Woods attending when we present the signatures.
With the hikoi (march) it is ok to walk and drive some of the distance. I will need to get a wheelchair or mobility scooter to be a part of it all and would only be able to do a shorter distance.
I would really like some feedback or your thoughts on this idea and if you would be a part of it

"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."
