SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Chewie the rabbit

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

"I came into SPCA with a damaged eye beyond repair. The wonderful vet team couldn't save it, so I had an operation to have it removed. It hasn't slowed me down at all, you just have to be aware that I can’t see you approaching me so please don't startle me.
I would love to be a single indoor bunny where I get all the human attention. I am a clean boy and will go into my large litter tray for toileting. I love gentle pats on my head and sometimes come up to you for treats. I regularly binkie around super fast, and when I'm tired I do bunny flops as I am a happy boy.
I love space and the outdoors so I will need a large grassy area with a weatherproof hutch for outside during the day. My indoor area must be big enough for me to spend the day and night comfortably. My caregivers ask that rabbits always come inside at night, to be part of the family and to keep me safe.
I could go to a home with friendly cats as I've met some before."

Cars to be banned from Titahi Bay Beach

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

An increase in dangerous driving on Titahi Bay Beach has led to a decision by Porirua City Council to no longer allow cars on the beach.
Councillors today voted for the move as part of a Transport Bylaw Review, citing major safety concerns for beach users.
Western ward councillors Geoff Hayward and Mike Duncan highlighted community safety concerns and said residents had spoken to them about their fears.
"Enjoying shared space means we all have a shared responsibility," Councillor Hayward said. "I don’t flinch when it comes to having a choice about making the beach safer."
Tell us what you think. It is a good idea?
