This week we feature a cat with the unlikely name Ned Kelly, who belongs to John Kelly from Carterton.
"Rehomed and renamed Ned Kelly. Every inch a rebel. Moved from the country into town, Carterton."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on email@example.com with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.
Earlier this week I took a trailer load of domestic rubbish to the transfer station. Nothing toxic or requiring special handling, just timber offcuts, a couple of cartons of workroom rubbish, a couple of broken plastic chairs, a few bits of an old concrete path and so on.
I was charged $87.50 for the load!
This is just outrageous, our council should be encouraging people to dump responsibly not gouging us at the gate.
KCDC have completely abdicated their responsibility by contracting out rubbish collection and management to expensive and grossly inefficient contractors. We have 3 different trucks collecting rubbish in our street, one following the other. How can that be efficient?
KCDC couldn't organise a booze up in a brewery, bloody hopeless, and we pay them for their incompetence.
Captain John was recently adopted by a family. Here is what they had to say.
"To the wonderful people at SPCA. On Tuesday, Captain John came home with us to his new furever home. Safe to say he has adjusted well and is loving his new life. He has discovered the confines of the kid’s bed.
He is completely calm with three kids and two dogs. Thank you for looking after him until he came to us."
