Pet of the Day: Meet Tazzy

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Rosa Stewart, from Stokes Valley, is the proud mum of Tazzy.

Rosa Stewart, from Stokes Valley, is the proud mum of Tazzy.

"Yesterday I was doing my usual stalking of the backyard birds with my camera behind my washing line as they were flying in for their daily feed of the seed that I had just thrown on the lawn and wondered why they just suddenly all flew off in all directions! What had scared them off was the sight of this magnificent but rotound feline lurking quite near by.

She is very much a Jeckyll and Hyde character, very friendly when she is tucked up with me at night and just loves having her belly rubbed. But outside she runs away when approached and totally disappears when friends or family drop in for a coffee!"


We wouldn’t change her for the world!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.

More heirloom tomato varieties to chose from this week and hopefully the full range ready by next weekend.
We are at Waikanae Market Saturday mornings (look out for our site along Park Road)and Otaki on Sundays - always 'weather permitting'.
Heirloom varieties are those which have stood the test of time and have superior taste (and often greater health benefits) than those commercially grown for the supermarkets. Some have been around for literally hundreds of years. Please pm me if you would like the full list.
Large well-grown plants ready to plant as soon as the ground finally warms up (they will not thrive outdoors in current conditions). $3.00 each.
A range of colours and sizes to suit every use, from salads and salsas to preserves and pickles.
Also dwarf and climbing beans, snow peas and Zucchini, including 'Partenon', an ideal early season variety as it is self-fertile and will set fruit in cooler weather when bee activity is low.
More Zucchini varieties coming next weekend plus the first Pumpkin and Kumi Kumi.
Coming up in November, we will have Capsicums, and Chillies - including some with really eye-watering heat!

My Friday Feathered Friend

James from Waikanae

I was in Pak'nSave Porirua car park. The car was parked right under a Kowhai tree and I could hear a tuneful tui warbling away. So I got out of the car and took some snaps.

Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.
