Help us care for our rescued kitties!

Amanda from Kinloch

Hi Taupo

We need your support to provide kitty litter and wet kitten food for the little ones. Any donations would be greatly appreciated as these will be fostered for at least next four weeks.

Mum (likely less than 12 months old) was likely dumped, not desexed, and pregnant again - a sad reminder of why trapping efforts are crucial. And unfortunately this is a problem in the wider Taupo district, rescue shelters are overrun and cannot assist, takes a community to assist and get behind these efforts. These guys were found in built up residential area, wild and kittens never been touched by humans (slightly feisty).

Donations can be dropped to address 31 Noble Street, Nukuhau or 3 Kahikatea Drive, Kinloch.

Thank you for your support!

Poll: Would you pay more to scrap card surcharges?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

We are used to tapping our card to pay in stores, but we are now having to decide whether to swipe it, insert it or use paywave depending on credit card surcharges. It can all be a bit tiring!

Would you rather that a retailer's card surcharges were just built into the cost of the items themselves? Share your thoughts below.

Type 'Not For Print' if you wish your comments to be excluded from the We Say You Say column of your local paper.
