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.

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

Sadly we've seen a spike in wildlife coming in to The Nest Te Kōhanga, the Zoo's wildlife hospital, with fishing hook and fishing line injuries this summer.

Our Vet team have been treating these patients and seen firsthand the devastating impact of these fishing hook injuries on our precious manu.

This is a timely reminder that if you are fishing along our coastlines, please remember to remove your rubbish and pick up any other fishing tackle you see around you.
