Arty has found a new home courtesy of the SPCA.
"Artemis (or Arty) has done an amazing job at settling in. She's super curious and interested in everything going on - I've never had a cat who watches TV before and attacks it! She especially loves it when my boyfriend plays Call of Duty, she gets very involved. She also loves to play a lot and she's not fussy at all with toys.
This week especially she's started vocalising a with me a lot, she chirps and brrrrs away at me while purring up a storm. She's so cuddly! She loves to be carried all over the house and snuggle up on my shoulders. At night after she's finished her zoomies, she likes to sneak in under the blankets to be the little spoon. We're very happy with her, and she seems to be very happy in her new home too."

Simon Woolf visited the South Island over Christmas and he took this beautiful picture of a kotuku.
"Back in the 1970's I got to know National Forest Service Photographer John Johns. John was a phenomenal photographer, who was both technically and creatively brilliant. John was a true gentleman. He shared his knowledge freely too.
One of his many amazing photos was a Kotuku in flight, however his photo was very different to other Kotuku photos I had seen. It was the white bird against a white sky, and in Black and White. It was a beautiful piece of art and showed The Kotuku, our White Herons features so precisely.
John Johns along with Geoff Moon would be our greatest ever wildlife bird photographers. They largely worked with film, creating images in a darkroom, and shooting with manual lenses, They respected their environment immensely.
This Kotuku photo, taken yesterday, is a tribute to John, and what he taught me all those years ago. I was very fortunate to have John and Geoff, who both passed away some years ago now, as friends and mentors".
