SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Charlotte

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

"I was a stray mum with kittens before coming to the SPCA.
Here's what my foster mum has to say about me:

Charlotte is a sweet wee girl, gentle and friendly with kittenish spirit coming through from time to time. She was initially nervous in her new environment, but patience and gentle encouragement has seen her become playful and sociable.

She likes being patted but isn't too fussed on being picked up and held (although this is improving) and isn't a lap cat at the moment. She spends some of her time in other rooms around the house but mostly likes company and comes when called.

She is an early riser and when she wants something can be quite vocal. She loves playing with small toys and moving things and gets quite absorbed watching action programmes on tv. A warning though, she loves electrical cables. She is a well adapted and house trained cat, and surprisingly, given her underlying nervousness, isn't scared of the vacuum cleaner, however I don't think she will like a rowdy household."

Pacific Language Weeks are underway in Porirua

Porirua City Council

Rotuman Language Week runs from Sunday 9 May to Saturday 15 May 2021.

Noa’ia everybody, Rotuman Pacific Language week is here!

This year’s theme for the Rotuman Language Week is Tutur häk ne måür lelei – which refers to the four pillars of life and wellbeing (spiritual, physical, psychological, and social) and it acknowledges and celebrates the strength and resilience of our Pacific communities during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is the first of the nine Pacific Language Week celebrations for 2021 and as always, it started with a formal flag raising in Porirua, which members of the Rotuman community, the Mayor and elected members attended.
