In addition, only one third (38%) of Wellington residents are visiting the dentist regularly. Otago are the country's best tooth brushers, with three quarters (73%) brushing the recommended two times a day. By contrast, one third of Kiwis (34%) brush just once a day at most.

Hi there my name is Simba, I am a big ole handsome man looking for my forever home.
I am a little shy and will tolerate gentle pants so I would love a quiet, patient home with no children (teenagers may be fine) and no other animals.
I would love a home where I can potter around and toast myself in the sun. I do come with a medical waiver that my new owners would need to be aware of.
If you think you are the home for me please contact the Feline Team at SPCA’s Wellington Centre.

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.

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

Free Aloe plant

Morag from Khandallah

The pot this Aloe grew in got broken and it was lifted into a larger pot with some compost tucked down the side. If you're happy to lift in out of its new pot (which we want to keep) it's yours for free. It has a robust root ball and should replant well.
