Pet of the Day: Meet Murphy

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tracy Watkins is the proud owner of Murphy.

"She loves chasing rabbits but while she’s never actually caught one it's good exercise for working off her other favourite thing, treats.

Tracy Watkins is the proud owner of Murphy.

"She loves chasing rabbits but while she’s never actually caught one it's good exercise for working off her other favourite thing, treats.
She also loves swimming in the creek on our lifestyle block and likes most things about country life (except cows which can be a bit intimidating). She also loves a lie in and is always the last one out of bed."
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.

rehoming my beautiful cat

Janine from Berhampore

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. I need to rehome my wonderful cat Dusky because he doesn't like the new cat we got and is bunking down at my neighbour's place more often than not. It turns out he's a one cat household and doesn't want to share his home. He is a … View moreIt is with a heavy heart that I write this post. I need to rehome my wonderful cat Dusky because he doesn't like the new cat we got and is bunking down at my neighbour's place more often than not. It turns out he's a one cat household and doesn't want to share his home. He is a bit of a free range cat but would suit a home where people are home quite a bit and can give him love and attention. Dusky is 8 years old, a bit overweight, but very healthy and independent. He has all his papers including a microchip. If you're interested please be in touch. I live in Berhampore, so Dusky's new home would preferably be further away from Berhampore, so he doesn't find his way back. He knows this neighbourhood well. Images attached

With the 75+ population projected to double in 20 years’ time, it’s more important than ever to choose a retirement village that is equipped to support you when you’re fully independent as well as if you need care.

That’s why Ryman villages plan ahead by offering independent living in apartments and townhouses, assisted living in serviced apartments, resthome care and, in most villages, hospital and specialist dementia care.

We offer a higher ratio of care in our villages so that if your needs change, you have priority access to our care centres.

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."

Greetings and Salutations -

This Friday, a 9 piece Bruce Springsteen tribute band will be playing at the Opera House at 7:30. The 3 hour show will feature all the songs from Bruce's first album, "Born to Run".

I was fortunate to have seen Bruce in Miami just after the album's release. It was one of the greatest concerts that I have ever witnessed. While no one except those from New Jersey had heard of him, everyone from the 2,500+ audience stood up from the first song and remained that way through the show. If Friday's band is half as good, it will be a show you will never forget.

I am going and have 2 extra tickets. Each is $70. You may purchase them either together or separately. If you are interested, please let me know through the website ASAP.

Best wishes - Michael
