Rosa Marie has been busy again with her camera.
"I was just thinking that after such a busy week, I needed to get some nature related well-being but it just started pouring! However there is always something to see on our back yard.
Not only did our resident wonky legged Blackbird bring along his offspring to feed juicy worms from our lawn, but a pair of California quails paid us a visit too and enjoyed a good peck around our lawns. Old Wonky legged had a beautiful juicy worm to feed his young but it kept falling out of it's mouth...
Never a dull moment! Awesome to be able to capture all this!"

Kirsten Boardman and Sir William McFloof.

"I've recently adopted the most adorable older gentleman cat from Cats Protection Wellington. I'd really like to have Sir William McFloof in the weekly pet section to show how gorgeous and special he is, but also to highlight the wonderful and important work that CPW does.
CPW take cats that come from broken homes, who have owners who pass away or can't/don't want to care for them anymore :( They have them checked by the vet and if they are older and have health issues like William, they are placed in a foster care programme. This amazing programme means William's medical care is looked after by CPW and I care for his other needs and give him a warm home and lots of love.
William has cardiomyopathy, which is a hardening of the heart walls. I don't know how long I'll have with him, but every moment is so special. He is a very loving and chatty cat. He trots around everywhere with me, talking loudly about life. He is great company. We think he has some Maine Coon in him - these above personality traits and the heart condition are common in MC cats. He also has the cutest huge paws!
Having William as pet of the week would show how gorgeous he is and that it's a wonderful thing to give an older kitty love and safety in their last years."

Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say which suburb you live in.
