Hi, has anyone seen this tortie? She responds to Nugget. She’s three years old, microchipped, is an indoor cat and can be quite comfortable with people. She has a nude Pawsome Couture collar with her name and number on the tag.

We haven’t seen her since around 7/8pm last night. She doesn’t usually wander from our neighbourhood (around Broadmeadows and Raroa) but we’ve been around and still can’t find her. Please let us know if you’ve seen her. We have had her since she was a wee kitten and we brought her with us from the South Island; she is very loved and we just want her to come home.

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.

Hi neighbours,

What do you think about the Wellington City Council's move to ban "bottomless brunches?"

All-you-can-drink alcoholic beverages over a restaurant brunch could be in jeopardy after councillors indicated a ban on such deals.

Several establishments across the city offer unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for a fixed price and this has led to complaints of excessive drinking.

Wellington City Council spokesman Richard MacLean mentioned that several complaints were being followed up by council and police regarding these "all you can drink" deals.

“The ‘bottomless brunch' arrangements are a clear breach of liquor-licensing laws - which are designed to rule out irresponsible consumption of alcohol and intoxication,” MacLean said.
