Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Words and picture from Louise Thomas.
"The clouds have hung so low and angry, that it has looked like grubby twilight all day. Still, everyone just goes about their business despite the shortness of the day and the bleak lighting. The weather didn't phase the fantail/pīwakawaka (Rhipidura fuliginosa), plenty of moths, midges, and spiders still to grab and other beings to investigate."

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Button

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet Button.

"Hey, I'm Button. I am a very handsome and lovable boy. I am a huge love bug and absolutely adore everyone that I meet. I would love to go to my new home where there is someone around for most parts of the day as I thrive on companionship and don't really like being by myself. I love playing with my toys and chasing them around my room. I would be okay going to a home with young children as they will be able to play with me, but they should know when to give me time and space to myself when I need it, and of course to be respectful of me. I would also be okay going to a home with another cat as I also really love feline companionship just as much as my humans. I would also be okay going to a home that has a calm and cat friendly dog. I do have a medical waiver that my new family will need to be made aware of but we can chat about this when you meet me."
