Loki the 3 legged burmese cat is still missing

Caroline from Berhampore

Hi neighbours

Loki is still missing after a week. Last time he disappeared three years ago he came back after 3.5 weeks having lost half his body weight, with a broken jaw, covered in abscesses, and dragging a dead leg. The leg was subsequently amputated. Loki is a stoic little chap who tends to sit and wait things out if he is stuck somewhere. He is not a noisy burmese and is unlikely to call out or make a lot of noise.

If cats are hurt or traumatised they shut down and hide, they are more likely to attempt to move around at night so shining torches into undergrowth or bushes, or into crawl spaces under sheds or decks might mean you can see his eyes reflect.

If he has been hit by a car or injured again and wasn't killed he would have a very limited ability to get himself home again given he is down to three legs. My worry is that he is immobilised and fading away somewhere. If he is shut into somewhere he would sit and wait to be let out.

He could also be stuck - on a roof, in a drain, down a hole or in a pipe. He is very curious. And despite having three legs he climbs trees and gets on roofs!

I have increased the cash reward to $1500 for finding him alive. Even if you have already looked - I'd be so grateful if you can look again.

Sludge trucking ends as first stage of Mt Albert repair successfully completed

The Team from Wellington Water

We are excited to announce that the first liner in the Mt Albert sludge pipes has been successfully tested and is now operational – which means we’ve been able to take bring the sludge trucks operation to an end.
There will be the odd truck passing through over the coming week or so as the sludge tanks at Moa Point are cleared, but the 24/7 operation is over.
We want to thank the impacted residents for your patience and resilience in putting up with the trucks traveling past your houses every day through what has been an extraordinary time – possibly made more trying by the restrictions of Covid-19 and the fact everyone was at home more than usual.

We also want to acknowledge the efforts of the truck drivers who have worked tirelessly to keep sludge out of Cook Strait. And we’d like to thank the council and community leaders who have ensured community interests were kept foremost throughout a particularly difficult time for the city.

The second Mt Albert pipe lining operation is under way. Once complete, in three weeks or so, this will restore full redundancy in the event of failure. If there’s an emergency before then, we may need to re-start the trucking operation. However, lining the full length of this critical Mt Albert section of the sludge pipe minimises the risk of the pipe failing again until a longer term solution for sludge management is developed.
