SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Marge

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet Marge, who was once a stray.

"I am a very talkative girl who is always up for a chat with my special human. I have a lot to say, especially when you pat me! I'm also very affectionate, with a particular affinity for head butts, pats, and being picked up. Being slow and steady in … View more
Meet Marge, who was once a stray.

"I am a very talkative girl who is always up for a chat with my special human. I have a lot to say, especially when you pat me! I'm also very affectionate, with a particular affinity for head butts, pats, and being picked up. Being slow and steady in your interactions with me is really important, as I can get nervous and unsettled when approached too quickly or intensely.
I'm not your typical lap cat during the day, but at night I want nothing more than to be by your side, whether that's sleeping on you or near you. I love bean bags, and temptation treats (in moderation of course!). I'm not always down to play, but when I'm in the mood, I love ping pong balls and stringy toys!
I'm looking for a quiet home with indoor/outdoor access, and that gives me space and independence when I need it. I would prefer a home without other animals or children as my mood can sometimes change quickly if I feel threatened or am unsure of my surroundings."

Friday Feathered Friend

"I love birding – some days are just filled with hope and potential. I set out in the rain hoping to maybe see a few kākā/brown parrots or maybe snap a few tui on the right angle, possibly come across some rotund kererū for comedic relief. But some days are blessed with a little extra and the unexpected. Today I came across an unbanded pair of kākāriki/red-crowned parakeets (Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae) fossicking in the undergrowth, then feeding in the trees – blissfully unaware they are relicts of better times. Hopefully proof-positive they are spreading in Wellington and the Hutt Valley. Wellington Botanic Gardens."

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!"

Looking for space to hang lovely paintings.

Niki from Newtown

Hi everyone, I'm a local artist and I produce lovely paintings of local landscapes. I have had many cafe exhibitions but now I'm wanting a permanent space to hang my work and rotate it as it sells.

I have had many cafe exhibitions but now I'm wanting a permanent space to hang my work and rotate it as it sells. I'm thinking outside the box and wonder if there are retailers who would love to have beautiful paintings enhancing their environment....possibly an antiques shop, a high end fashion store, a collectibles store, a library or another space that I haven't thought of....I believe that I'm a golden opportunity regarding my ability to produce high quality paintings...but I need an outlet.....if you have a store and/or would like to talk to me about your idea please respond below. Please see my attached images, I'm a saleable artist. Thank-you, Niki. www.nikiphillipsart.co.nz...
