Mittens is safe! Hold the front page

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

It is the catnapping that was not. All's well that ends well for Wellington celebrity cat Mittens.
A caller to Stuff's Wellington newsroom reported that the Turkish
angora was stuck in a car on Victoria St in central Wellington early
on Tuesday morning.
When reporters arrived at the scene, Mittens was inside the car and, evidently, eager to get out.
Help was soon on the way in the form of Mittens' owner Silvio Bruinsma
who plucked Mittens from the car to take back home.
It seems that Mittens had been wandering the streets and a
well-meaning member of the public put him in their car due to concern
for the cat. They had then called Bruinsma,, who (as he has done many
times before) went to Mittens' rescue. -Tom Hunt

Secondhand weekend newspapers wanted

Hayden from Johnsonville

Hi everyone,
My Grandfather who has dementia likes to read the weekend papers and do the puzzles in the back of them. Would anyone in Johnsonville or the Redwood area of Tawa (relatively close to the Z service station) be happy to pass their weekend papers on to us when finished with them? We are happy to take papers that are a few days old and can pick-up.
Cheers, Hayden.
